I think a couple of close-ups of #4 are in order. This is what Walther calls their High Polish finish. This gun is 46 years old.

Having been a victim of "slide bite" I am fine with the new pistols. Do not look as good but I can live with it. Trust me, if you are going to fire one of the older 380s, make sure your grip is perfect.

I used to have a Beretta 70s in 380. I always took bandages (or superglue) when I went to shoot this monster. Great gun, but a nasty disposition!

Aww c'mon Rick; it's just a couple of 1/4" deep bloody slits in the web of your hand; shake it off! It happens to pretty much everyone the first time they shoot one of these unless you really school 'em. What's even worse is if they are unfamiliar with pistols and stick their non-shooting hand thumb back there. When that slide comes back, it will darn sure get their attention...if they still have that thumb, it's for sure the last time it will be back there! (That is, if they even shoot one of these meat grinders again).


A little worse than that if you hand is battered, bloody, swollen and you grab the pistol in a hurry. But I do love your collection.
