Picked up a P88

I just picked up a nice P88. Serial # is 0065xx and it dated 1990. I was expecting "KA" but it just has "90". The gun is in excellent condition and came with the original box and 2 mags. I expect to be taking it to the range later this week. Anything in particular I need to know before I shoot it?

Nice clean example.

Use a longer focal length and your firearms won't look like they are curved.

Uncut, here is the pic you requested. Am I wrong in thinking numbers instead of letters is unusual? Please excuse my poor photography skills!
