    People with high tolerance for big government interference with their daily life?

    Hard to tell in the holster. The rear of the upper action looks like a 1911, but doesn't have a hammer. I'm 25 miles from the Illinois line and a lot of folks I work with live there. The hoops they have to jump through, just to buy ammunition. Indiana is fairly easy to get a permit. Unless you get it pulled for cause. Then it's a copper plated booger to get it back.

    It ended up being a J.P. Shuer & Sohn, Suhl 7.65 cal. pistol, which I guess was essentially a cops gun from that era.
    It’s in pretty poor condition, left grip is busted& it’s pretty pitted.

    I don't know man, that's kind of cool. Something not unique but not the same as everyone else has. I'd clean it up, get some grips and hang onto it. It won't be a show piece but an interesting add to a collection.

    Looks like a Walther PP or a Sig. Cool looking piece.
