25ACP mouse gun, how often do you use it?
 
I bought a FIE Titan a few years ago out of curiosity and since then it only comes out of the vault once or twice a year. Little 25 autos are fun guns but honestly how many of you use yours more regularly?

My uncle has one. We took it to the range one time so far. We shot 14 shots through it and it jammed 5 times.

Thats what I expected but mine rarely jams. I put 100 rounds through it the other day without a single hiccup. Not the most accurate thing in the world though, but can you really expect that from a vest pocket gun?

No offense but I wouldn't own a .25. I see no practical use for them-especially since you can get a .380 in basically the same size package. Sure I realize that any gun is better than none but a .25 is just too anemic. I'd be scared to carry a .25 in fear of having to use it and REALLY pissing somebody off.

I used to have a Sterling arms .25 and hated it, darn thing would stovepipe just about every round. I now carry a Kel Tec P32 as my pocket gun and couldn't be happier with it.

+1000 to Stalkingbear.
My boss showed me the scar where he was shot in the arm with a .25.
It went in from the side of his forearm, just under the skin and stopped about 3/4 of an inch from where it penetrated.
And yes, it did just p!ss him off, he was able to dig the bullet out with a pocket knife, but not before his knuckles got aquainted with his attackers head.

I just got ride of mine at a gun show for a AK47. When i did have it I used it 2-3 times over 6+ years. It was a jamming fool.:(

Around here, we call them an "Oh sh!t" gun. You empty it at your attacker than say "oh sh!t" and run.

I have heard many stories about how ineffective a .25 acp round is. You do not seem to hear near as many of those stories on a .22LR.

I've had mine for 12 years. Inherited it from my dad.

Never shot it although I did buy some ammo a year ago.

I didn't purchase mine as a practical piece as most of the things in my vault aren't. I was just curious as to the frequency of use since I rarely see them at any range I use. Besides in matters of life and death a 25 in my pocket is more effective than a handful of lint and a 45 back at home in the safe.
