    I've come into a couple weapons this evening which I'm going to be submitting for analysis. Specifically, a Walther P-38 and an M1 Carbine. The P-38 is (I believe) a CYQ model with a low serial number (733 V). The slide is hard to read and in rough shape but, the weapon overall looks great. The M1 is a Inland DIV General Motors product from July/Aug 1944. Other than some surface rust on the barrel, it also looks to be in excellent shape. Found this site while researching them.

    Been to Alaska a few time but never to Sitka. I must be saving the best for last.... Thank you sir.

    Thank you Jay, Looking forward to this site.
    I used to live in Westport and Grayland in the 70s, still have family in Aberdeen. I love Washington State but, don't know that I could live there anymore. Have they lost their minds everywhere? Or just in Seattle and Olympia....
