    “I was in fear for my life!” “I will cooperate and make a statement when my lawer gets here!” Then STFU! The trifecta we all need to remember.

    Hope WW is doing OK. Believe his last comment was his attempt to cobble together some comms.

    Remember when Walther made a pistol that worked like it was supposed too? Pepperidge Farms may remember, but I bet Graybeard doesn’t.

      Actually, the P38 Dad liberated from a German ossifer is pretty nice, except for that dratted DA trigger pull.

      Too bad Walther’s quality today isn’t up to par. At least in the sample I had. YMMV

      • David says:

        Every brand has on occasional ‘off’ sample. Question is, did they try to fix it? Get it handled? If so, good. If not… THEN it is a problem.

  2. In West Palm Beach, Fl., were two people shot inside the vehicle according to the above article.??? Point of interest is that in Florida, one doesn’t need a concealed carry license to have a handgun in their car or place of residence, but do if carried on person.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Florida also also enjoys reciprocity with Utah. Why care? My CCW is from there, as the PDRofMD doesn’t entrust citizens with Second Amendment rights.

    TV trivia: some of the guns used in the original series “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” were modified P-38s, with lots of accessories.

  4. Smitty says:

    Agree with Jeff LPH, ” a vehicle owner confronted a burglar inside their vehicle”- did the burglar and victim both jointly own the vehicle? Please refrain from PC language.

    Oh well, 3 burglars have been rehabilitated, with minimal cost to anyone. 1 burglar will have a chance to be rehabbed, with the odds being, probably, 3 to 1 that he won’t be.
