Default .25 galesi

Anyone own one? I love it traded ammo valued around 130. I can't complain YET. Haven't had a problem with it besides paying 22 a box of 50

Yeah, watch out for that, never mind. A friend of mine's bit me, too.

It's more difficult with larger hands.

His jammed(stovepipe) every 3rd mag or so. But I can't claim that's

a common problem.

The ammo is less common, so it will always cost a little more.

IMHO, not a badly made pistol. Nice BUG.

Two complaints getting bit and cost of ammo! I shot 100 rounds today no problem at all! I cleaned it very thoroughly before taking it out. It's a perfect bug it's my ankle or pocket carry behind the xd, lc9, and the judge!

There HAVE been poorly made .25 Autos, and the cartridge IS a lightweight- BUT-

The reliability of feeding of that little semi rimmed cartridge, and of centerfire priming over rimfire- actually pretty good.

Bear in mind that the .25 Auto should be used with a two handed shooting stance- One hand holds pistol, other hand holds shoulder of your opponent....

In many cases, the .25 pistol is 1/2 the size of the Galesi, which,

in practical terms, must get very difficult to handle, for any large

guy with big hands.

I have never been bit by mine. Its accuracy is pretty good my 9 yr old hits roughly 7" groups at 10 yards which for no more sight than it has I was pretty impressed .
