MUCH better than no gun at all, as many BG have been finding, to their
dismay, for a VERY LONG time. ENOUGH capacity to get the initial job done, and an
easy reload. Poor handling, and non-existant sights might mean something if SD
weren't at POINT BLANK range. And please show me some better
choices, sir, that are the same size, or smaller, than a derringer...
