    about 2-3 years ago, i went to a gunshow to buy a centerfire autoloading pistol for target shooting with the possibility of home defense. walked the entire show, saw some hi points, glocks, the ususal fair. i was on a tight budget so my price range was around $200 or below. then i saw it. a Star .380 ACP with walnut grips. never fired. looked like a shrunk 1911. it was $230. im with my dad and we talk to the seller. seller tells dad it's from spain and hasn't been made in afew years. dad said it sounds like it would be hard to get parts for in the event of a break:cuss::fire:. so we move on. either way, i end up buying a PA-63 for $110. i know i screwd the pooch, but how bad did i really?:banghead::banghead::banghead::(

    I think that's a pretty good price for a Star, I probably would have snagged it if I wanted a .380. However, for $110 you got a good price on the PA-63. I don't have any experience with them, but I definitely would have jumped on that since I already stock 9x18. Once you build up an ammo stockpile you can get a Makarov or CZ82 whenever you find a deal. :)
