.380 FOR CARRY I’m a huge fan of .380 ACP carry guns. My daily is a Ruger LCP II. Although newer bullets and ammo now make the .380 a viable self-defense choice, I’m wondering why none of the manufacturers load 115-grain bullets commercially? I load them, and they perform beautifully on the range. However, I hesitate to carry self-defense handloads for legal reasons. I’ll bet there are a lot of folks that wish for .380 ACP loads in 115-grain from the factory!Harv Lyter Boise, Idaho You are absolutely correct in that recent bullet developments have brought the .380 to the point  that it can be considered for self-defense. The best of these loads, in my opinion, are the Black Hills Honey Badger, Hornady Critical Defense and Speer Gold…

(PHOTO: MICHAEL ANSCHUETZ) THE FIRST P.08 LUGER I handled is the property of U.S. Marine Master Gunnery Sergeant Travis Thompson. We were young corporals working in an armory when he brought his bring-back in for repair. It was the souvenir of Thompson’s grandfather, U.S. Army Sgt. Donald Thompson, a “Motor-T” driver from Grinnell, Iowa, during World War II. When it came to me, the Luger had a broken firing pin and a worn side-plate. Besides the need for replacement parts to make it work, the Luger was complete, albeit with a barrel that was curiously missing half its bluing. The 1916-manufactured DWM Luger was storied to have been picked up on the battlefield after it was found stuck in a pool of blood and snow, but this was not verifiable.…

A very nice Enfield No. 4 (T) Sniper Rifle with original wooden transit case went for a comfortable $3,900, including premiums, at the February 6, 2019, Morphy Auctions sale. The rifle’s socket was appropriately stamped “M47G 1945 U” along with the serial number, and the gun includes a proper, original No. 32 scope. The bottom of the stock is stamped “S51” indicating that it was set up by Holland & Holland. Neither scope nor mount match. However, the scope’s serial number does match the one on the transit case. Condition of the arm is excellent with only minor service blemishes. For more information about this and future sales, contact Morphy Auctions, morphyauctions.com, 877-968-8880.…

“Silverado” Enfield Revolver About 30 years ago, I was called by my friends at Stembridge Gun Rentals in Glendale, California, who wanted an opinion on what type of revolver Englishman John Cleese should carry in his role as Sheriff John T. Langston for the western film “Silverado” (1985). Having visited Stembridge on a regular basis, I often spent considerable time in the handgun room. I remembered a British 1884 Mark II Enfield revolver that I thought would be just dandy. They took my advice and the gun ended up being featured prominently in the film. A scarce piece in its own right, this particular Enfield had been in Stembridge’s inventory for a considerable period of time and was also seen in the Cecil B. DeMille epic “North…
