A gun dealer once told me about a gun dealer who was successfully robbed in a hotel parking lot. The dealer drew a Derringer and fired two shots at the fleeing robbers. He missed . The dealer telling me the story remarked, " If he'd had a Smith 5-shot Bodyguard, he'd 've had 'em " .

I examined a Derringer at a gun shop a year ago . The trigger was so hard, I was sometimes unable to make the hammer fall . The guys at the shop said they'd tried to lighten the triggers with poor results .

If had successfully shot a fleeing robber, he might have been charged with murder.

True enough .

Shooting fleeing armed robbers can be justified on the grounds that they represent an imminent threat to the public .

Of course that won't prevent some proscecutor or judge from putting a good citizen in prison forever .

" We gun rights advocates may disagree with what anti-gun people say but we will defend to the death their right to say it ....and we have the means to do that ! "
