..pistols lost/pistols found..phew..
« on: April 14, 2019, 10:33:43 AM »
.
have 2 very tricked up Makarov 9x18mm pistols that have a lot of sentimental value for me and damn, I couldn't find them (wanted to "show-'em-off") during house guest's recent visit

tore apart the gun safe, the range bags, gun stuff storage bags.....got thoughts that we might have been robbed (as we usually leave the house unlocked when we "go")

then this morning while I was looking hi and lo (for the umpteenth time) my darling Wife comes waltzing in with the 2 of 'em.....they were in the lower drawer of one of our nightstands, under a bunch of "stuff"

thank you thank you thank you   :th_thicon_idea:

my E. German (black chrome refinished by Wife's Father)


Wife's Bulgarian (Hard chrome refinished)

YUPPER.   Pretty nice looking pistols.  :thumbsup1:

I NEVER leave the house unlocked,,, not even with 3 German Shepherds.

( mostly cause 2 of em KNOW how to open doors. But they aint figured the "lock" part  out yet. )   :th_thicon_funny:

Sho nuff. I ever leave mine unlocked even when I am at home. But then, considering my job, I have a built in "fan club" I have to keep an eye out for

yes Sir - the pic of the East German doesn't do the finish justice - FIL (passed away a few years ago) had a small gun shop west of San Antonio (Sabinal) where he did the refinish on this Mak - then I bought the Bulgarian for my Wife and sent it off for the Hard Chroming   

the grips came from Europe (Marschal Grips - https://www.marschalgrips.com/)

Well, he did a very fine job on the top one. It looks fantastic. And the grips on both are very nice indeed.  :th_thicon_idea:
