I've always hand a thing for handguns. My grandpa passed about 6 years ago and left my family his guns.

My grandpa was a little Italian man named Luigi, my best friend in the world. He used to tell me stories of growing up in Italy and his family being in the mafia, etc, etc.

So his mobster cousin gave him this V. Bernardelli P8 (made in Italy) .380 ACP when they came over to America for protection.

It finally got passed on to me (my mom had it in a safe all of these years) along with a Spanish Astra 1916 Model Automatic .25 ACP.

I have been researching these models of Bernardelli and Astra trying to find some more info without much luck, but here are some pictures.

'obligatory gangster pose' woulda been alot more convincing had you been dressed accordingly. youve got the gun, and body style to match :)

cool that its got a history though, certainly something you cant get rid of now!

On GunBroker.com I couldn't find any P8's, I found ONE Astra 1916 .25 and it was the American version. Going for $375. icon_biggrin.gif

I sure would like to know. It would be awesome to know I own a gun that was used in some serious mafioso action. icon_cool.gif icon_cool.gif
