    $500,000 for a Luger?! And I thought there was a recession on. The only way I'd shell out that kind of dough for a Luger is if it belonged to Hitler...and he used it to shoot George Reeves...and there was a picture of Hitler shooting George Reeves that came with it.

    But the real question is, does the new owner have the guts to take it out to the range :)
    Can't wait for the look of the guy next to me when I ask "can I borrow some 45s for my Luger?"
