This is a panic gun! 0 to 20 yards max! I'm a fan of the .380 and have a couple others.

The AMT Backup I have is all stainless steel and is a bit heavy, this little guy will slip into your pocket and not feel likes it trying to drag your britches down to your ankles like that AMT.

The *&W Sigma has got a funky mag releases and when you grip the handle tight you can actually release the mag which renders the gun worthless.

Most of the time...my Glock 27 with laser sights is riding shotgun with me. That'* ones capable of 75 yards consistent tight patterns.

I keed!. And know what itz for. LOL. It looks like a fine close quarters gun, great dimensions, caliper, weight for such.

Ya, having a situation where you would actually fire on somebody and having the mag fall at your feet has the makings for a bad day.

Yes I have. Mine'* scoped. It'* the one I open carry up in Missouri. More for show than anything. But man, when you walk into Wal-Mart with one of those in a shoulder holster people don't give you any crap.

But, I'd rather fire a .44 Mag over one of these.


Desert Eagle .50 Cal. Those things are stupid. I don't even know why they make them.

Or, these aren't fun either.


.38 Snub Nose. With .38 Special they aren't too bad. They suck when firing .357 Mags though. I thought I was gonna break my thumb off.

Nah, where I'm from Wal-Mart is a hang out for the kids. So they try to start crap sometimes. My .44 stopped all that!

The.357 can fire .38spl. but the .38spl can't fire .357 rounds.

The *&W 500 is wicked. You can feel the lead twisting down the barrel and causes the recoil of the gun to jump up and roll to the left. It'* one of the weirdest sensations!

The nastiest round is the .44mag fired in anything under a 6" barrel. I have a Charter Arms .44spl that when you fire it at night, makes instant daylight and shadows!
