    Hello I read you from France forgive my english I use the translator Google I am a pistol shooter GP 100 6 "with some friends we shoot only on gong that we have 25 meters to 100 meters we shoot very little on targets a 25 m not really interested in our eyes but it's our choice because there are many competitions at 25 m especially semi automatic pistol.
    Weapon that has very little interest for me who loves the mechanics of a revolver
    And of course I find a lot of information on this great forum
    Thank you

    Bienvenue!

    My thanks to your country for inventing the best .357 Mag. revolver of all time (among other things). :)

    welcome! you are bound to learn a lot here, so stay with us.

    please note that sometimes google translations come out a bit strange.
    if it doesn't make sense, just ask fo an explanation.

    C’est cool ça. Tu cuisines le sanglier aussi?
    En tout cas, quel sort de fusil utilises-tu? I have just purchased a Mauser M18 for boar.

    on fait cuire le sanglier essentiellement à la broche ou dans un pichet
    Et où êtes-vous aux Etats-Unis dans quel état?

    Welcome to THR! I have no experience with French revolvers (though I still hope one day to land an Mle.1892 Lebel), I have had a few semi-auto pistols from France. Years ago I owned a Manurhin PP and a MAB PA15 and still have this Manurhin P1 which was part of a contract to supply the West Berlin Police Department.

    This is fun but how about English please? Not all of us are bilingual. Can't learn anything if I can't read it.

    The OP and many responders are using Google to translate.

    Bienvenue sur le forum et amusez-vous. Il y a une mine d'informations partagées ici et de nombreux membres tirent depuis des décennies.

    Je suis allé en France. C’est un pays merveilleux. Y at-il beaucoup de tireurs récréatifs là-bas?

    Welcome from New Mexico. I'm going to pass on the part that's in French as I'm not interested in the trouble to use Google.

    I had never used Google translate before this thread but it was pretty cool. And fun.

    I have a french made Walther/Manhurin PP in 32acp. Mine was made in 1957. Same year I was made. It is almost flawless as to wear. But apparently it was made when Walther and Manhurin got crossed up and it has the Walther banner scrubbed from the grip panels and "made for Walther" exed out on the slide. No matter. Its not for sale.

    I also had a French MAS 35A given to me. It shot a hot 32 auto round that matched the bottom end 32 mag ballistics. It was missing the mag. Finally after many years of searching (pre internet) I found a mag for $25. I never could find any ammo for it. And I looked every where. Finally I sold the damn thing at the GS for $50 just to get it out of my life. But I sure wish I could have shot that gun at least a few times.

    And welcome to the forum. In English.:p

    Nice Manurhin P1!

    I love the MAB PA-15. A lot of people think the S&W Model 59 was the first 9mm pistol to surpass the Hi-Power in capacity, but it was actually the PA-15 a few years before. Rock-solid, all-steel guns with an interesting rotating-barrel, delayed-blowback action (not short-recoil, like a Beretta PX4, because the barrel doesn't travel rearward). I love the PA-15 Target / P.A.P. F1 -- the long-slide, accurized PA-15 with an adjustable trigger -- even more.

    Mediocre seller pic of the latter:
