    Well folks I finally have the very 1st pistol I shot, here is my Beretta 70S in 22lr.. My dad use to own this and gave it to one of my brothers in L.A, and I always wanted to own it so when I asked my brother what he wants for it, he said he just wanted a 9mm for home defense since they live in L.A. "**********" and he can not carry there anyway. I traded one of my G19 with 10rd mag ofcourse and he was pretty happy about it. I did not mind since I still have my Glock 19 EXO to carry..anyway here it is..

    That looks like a family heirloom that should be passed on to the next generation.

    Way to go! Not only a great little .22, but one with a lot of sentimental value for you as well. The Model 70S is one of the best medium frame size .22LR pistols out there. If you want to change out the thumbrest grips for the more comfortable flat panel type, I think gun-parts.com has them for $35. Enjoy your "family" reunion.

    Cool deal! I just did the same thing! The first pistol I shot was my cousin's Glock 22, and I just purchased that from him yesterday! Full circle is a neat thing....unless it involves bad things.... :)
