I don't know I kinda like the idea of it I've been wanting to shoot one just to see how it shoots. But for the money I can't see me spending that much for a revolver I've been down to the keenes (kygunco) they look like they would be fun to shoot but I don't think I'll ever drop that much cash for one.

The reason I call it keenes is I've been going there since they were in the small shop and old man keene still owned the place.

You're absolutely right about the Pacer...my dad had one. Looked like a fishbowl on wheels. Regards Dick

While the concept for the gun was right the manufacturing was off. They get terrible ratings and IMO are over priced.
Feel free to spend the money and prove me wrong, I'm always open to unbiased owner reports.

I can't fore see spending that kind of money on one but I will admit it is an interesting idea in an ugly wrapper. I think I would like to shoot one at least once.

The one awesome thing about the AMC's of that era were the seats...
I snarfed a set from a Pacer & stuck 'em in my '72 Plymouth Duster...

NOTE: when switching from Bench to Bucket, make sure you don't drill thru the gas line...
the Dodge Demon/Plymouth Duster gas line runs right under where the left side passenger seat bracket goes...
fortunately I didn't fry my car...but it sure scared the beejebers out of me

Fine firearms are like great horses beautiful bird dogs and sexy women. They are classics and will long be remembered for their uniqueness. Firearms that have an ugly clumsy appearance will fail in the market place. The Dardic Pistol firing trounds{yes Trounds} was the answer to recoil control and reloading in the 1960s. How many shooters today have ever heard of it?

I don't think recoil was one of the things Dardick was trying to address. I thought it was simply reloading.

Well you were not around in the early 1960s or you have forgotten the principles claimed by the company. There were many new now lost improvements in firearms prior to 1968.
