    I have had my C&R license for about 3 years now. Let me know if I am wrong, but it appears that the ubiquitous guns from just those couple years back have kinda dried up and prices are rising. I still see a lot of Walther P1 and P38 but really nice CZ 52s? Or Yugo Tokarev in excellent condition? Bought both of those in like new condition for under two hundered. Now prices look like they are closing in on $300. What does this teach us? Buy more guns now! ;-)

    PS I am talking excellent condition, not good or very good.

    If you don't mind a suggestion, I would get a Radom P-83 pistol instead of the P-64. To me the P-83 was more interesting because both the frame and the slide were largely made from heavy-gauge sheet steel stampings. Both are 9mm Makarov, but the P-83 is more pleasant to shoot because of its larger size, better trigger, and better sights.

    Just my $.02 - obviously, you like what you like.

    PS - I am glad to see you like the CZ 38. They are a unique design, if not a very successful one, and very well made, like most CZ products. They make an interesting comparison to the the British 38 Enfield revolver.

    With the yugo zastava m57 being c&r i wonder if the md70 32acp pistol is? It is the baby brother to the M57 and fun to shoot. Heck it even has the removable trigger/ hammer. assy

    Add a Mosin Nagant 91/59 to your Mosins. It is my favorite and most accurate shooting of my 3 Mosin carbines.

    My favorite C&R pistol is my CZ82, but I just got in a Rommie Tok and a Walther P-38 I haven't shot yet.
