    Does anyone carry vintage or antique pistols?

    Just wondering how many people might carry a vintage / antique pistol....like an old Walther, Savage 1907, 1915, etc?

    I stopped by a vintage firearms dealer nearby and saw a Savage 1915 hammerless, .32ACP in excellent condition today asking price $850. I have to wait until month end to get it. I just hope he still has it! He also had a model 1907 in fair condition for $425. We were discussing some other classic pistols, when I mentioned I was also looking for a Walther PP with German proofs, when he revealed he was carrying in an ankle holster a Walther PP, .32 manufactured in Germany in 1942. Real nice looking gun! He unloaded it, handed it to me and said, "This one's not for sale, but have a look see."

    Anywho, just got me wondering how many of y'all might carry a classic, day in and day out?

    I don't but I know someone that carried an old CZ-82 for a while. Not sure if that counts.

    I used to carry a 1955 vintage S&W Model 10, but it was much too nice too nice to risk...It had 12 rounds run through it whan I aquired it in 1987...not quite an antique, but...

    I am not into antique or vintage firearms. However if I were I would not use one for daily carry because I would not want to have to surrender it to LEO after a self defense incident.

    If I am not mistaken, I believe there are a couple of members here that carry a vintage WWII era Polish Radom VIS 35

    i have both the .32 and .380 Savage pistols.
    paid $75 & $160 back when guns shops considered them junk. i consider them great little guns. i have used them for carry but now they are part of my little Savage collection
