Here is a pistol that is in my collection. I wanted one that would represent what would have been issued to my father and since I do not collect firearms per se, I opted for a de-activated one. This one was purchased by me active, sent to a gun shop, and de-activated according to the laws here. Since the gun laws had recently been changed, it was reasonably cheap to purchase. This decision was made some time ago when it was not possible for me to own an active one. Since then, I have some regrets but, since there is no problem for me to own it, I am still happy that I did what I did. It was purchased with the intent to display it with a reproduction Panzer wrapper.
