    That's a good deal. I saw one at a dealer Monday and he wanted $199.

    Wow, that is a good deal. I usually see them for $200 or above. I would like to get one as a back-up CCW.

    How's the recoil on it? I've never shot anything that small. Is it comfortable to shoot, or does the slide rake the top of your hand as it cycles? It would seem that the short stubby grip on it might make that an issue.

    Well Chunk, You'd better fill us in a little more about that P-64. I just won one on Gunbroker. With shipping it will be $145. :D

    I'm not sure that's a C&R, is it? Can I use my C&R license to order one? Chunk, where/how did you buy yours, if you don't mind my asking?

    Well, I've got mine now. I was shooting Brown Bear ammo. Recoil was pretty stout on mine. It really punched my hand. Accuracy was very nice, and it never malfunctioned at all. I may have to try different ammo. My hand hurt after 50 rounds.

    Mine is also dated 1969, and is marked TG KNOX TN, which I assume is tennessee guns. I have two clips, one serial numbered to the gun, the other has a different number.
    Do you know if anyone is making aftermarket grips for it? Wraparound rubber grips would help tame some of that recoil. Thanks.
