Mauser Broomhandle Pistol V Luger Pistol

Does anyone carry or favour either the Mauser Broomhandle Pistol or Luger Pistol. If so I would be interested to hear why? This is open for general discussion.

Regards

I want to acquire a Luger, but not for carry.

Don't use a piece of history for carry. If you ever have to use it, it will end up in police custody and eventually an officer's personal collection!

The broomhandle Mauser is poorly balanced, but they are very well made and reliable. The Luger is a wonderfully balanced and a natural pointer. They are finicky about ammo and cleanliness. Both are really not modern carry guns and if something breaks, parts availability could be somewhat problematic.

The Luger was (is) a crappy pistol. It's collectibility comes from it's association with infamy and unique design rather than from it's effectiveness as a firearm. By all accounts it's accurate and comfortable but it was an overly complicated pistol that had serious reliability issues. I would definitely like to have one as a collectors item/fun-gun but not as an EDC. No way.
