Re: Question about Gerhard Backhorn's sidearm

The Luger being such a perfect built Pistol, ie, tight tolerances, the holster for it was quite bulky and basically sealed it off from outside dirt and dust and was large and unhandy.
I.... if givin the choice, would hands down have picked the P38! as it was more compact, and forgiving to dirt and abuse... such as a Bail out and coming down in swampy conditions on the Ost front.
Just my opinion and not sure what Barkhorns choice was. search the Net for Luger Holsters and see for yourself! Huge!
