I don't have any 11.75 x 36mm, the rounds are collector's pieces themselves. You can make it by cutting down and resizing .45-70 cases, but of course it's loaded to black powder pressures only. If I can make up some cases (and find bullets!) I'll definately shoot it! It's actually surprisingly well made, and it locks up very tight, so I'd trust it.

Seeing as all the handguns arrived, and the weather was perfect for it, I snapped another picture of the entire handgun collection today.

Quite well. It reliably feeds anything I load it with, espescially compared to the Lugers and P.38. They can be kind finnicky.

Almost bought one once, but I was saving for my 4506

I think you have every early 20th centry pistol ever made

Where did you get the P38? It's one of my favorite handguns!

Oh, believe me, I don't have every one - I still have about 100 pistols on my wish list (some of which are admittedly 19th century).

I got the P.38 from another collector, I think I paid about $500 for it. Other than the recent glut of Russian imports P.38s are probably the most common WW2 pistol to find. And honestly, although my collection definately needed one, I'm not a big P.38 fan. Great technical acheivement, but it's one of the bulkiest pistols I own (espescially for a 9mm) and doesn't handle well.
