Dumb question, that would prolly be dangerous:
Can you fire all 4 barrels at once?

Enjoy your Star. It might not be a Beretta or Browning, but it's light years ahead of raven, bryco, jennings, etc.

I also wanna get a box of .32 long, for my grandmother. My grandfather had an old Iver-Johnson .32 revolver, and now she has that and a Raven MP-25. I wanna get her some ammo for the better gun, and teach her how to shoot it.
Update:
Walmart didn't have .25 or .32 long.
All they had was .40, .17, 7mm, 30-06, .410, 20 gauge, and 12 gauge

It's definitely not a self-defense gun. It's good for plinking and maybe varmits at close range. I've heard someone talk about seein a guy get shot in the head with a .25, and the bullet didn't penetrate the skull, it just went under the skin to the back of his head. I also read that a hooker had the same thing happen with SEVEN bullets, and didn't even realize she had been shot until a week later!

The trick with a .25, used in SD, is to fire the entire magazine into the BG's shorts, then hit them in the head with the empty pistol and then run like hell!
