Hello,
I need help identifying a handgun I inherited from my grandfather. It is a .38 and the serial number is 30594. Its registered as a 1920 pocket but im not sure if that is accurate at all.
Thank you for your help :)

Midway and a bunch of other websites have the ammo. I am with dogface, clean it up, check it out and shoot it if you so desire. Welcome if I have not said so before.

Canada boys. Handguns must be registered and may only be transported in a locked container to and from your house and a firing range which must be registered with the government and you must have a membership. Cant even shoot one in your own back yard or up in the bush at your cabin legally. Shoot an intruder you go to jail. Etc etc etc.

This gun is in pretty rough condition. Ill have her serviced by a gunsmith.

Sorry to hear Canada has sunk so low in gun rights, had no idea, but at least all the children are safe now..........looks like they are following in the steps of the UK

Welcome eh!
I would be very careful with this one if you plan on shooting it. It was made in a era of non heat treated steel and low pressure ammunition. If you do decide to shoot it, and you handload send me a PM and I'll give you a recipe for .38ACP to use to make your own. Finding factory .38ACP ammunition up here is a fruitless search.
