An old Mauser C96, 7,63mm

Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Mauser 1896

My wife's uncle had one in 7.63 Mauser. It was a great shooter, very accurate, and little recoil. As Nobile said, with the stock attached the recoil was practically negligible. After his death it disappeared, and no word ever came as to its whereabouts. Suspicions, but no proof.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).
