Update... The new M&P Bodyguard, basically a BG without the laser is an interesting option. The trigger is the same but the slide serrations are more aggressive. Another surprisingly good option is...

Tim, While there is noticeable recoil it's lighter than say an LCP or a Bodyguard. I put 100 rounds thru mine yesterday with no discomfort, something I could never do when I had an LCP.

Just did a range day and put another 100 rounds through my Glock 42. This is truly a shooters 380 and is heads and shoulders above all the other small 380s I've owned. You can comfortably shoot this...

I agree, if you want a quality 1911 in 22 LR there is nothing like a real Colt Ace. I have 2 real Colts and once you own one of these you'll never settle for a clone.

I've owned a couple Glocks previously, and while good pistols I never cared for their ergonomics. That said as soon as I handled a Glock 42 and my LGS I loved the feel of it. True it's larger than a...

I agree with everything posted above. This is a very nice little pistol and Glock is going to sell a lot of them. The size is larger that an LCP or Bodyguard 380, just enough so it is comfortable...

All 3 MNs are completely original, the M44 is a 1955 Polish.
The Polish examples are the nicest finished M44s out there.

Mosins I believe are the last truly good deal in surplus firearms. 10 years ago it was Russian capture K98s and before that Enfields. One thing I avoid are the imports with the billboard import...

The trigger is very smooth with a crisp let off, heavier than Paras LDA and kind of like a Ruger LCR. The pistol has very smooth lines and is the nicest feeling Government Model I've owned. Colt...

The pull though heavy, I estimate 10 lbs, is very smooth with a clean break. Much smoother than my Seecamp or Double Eagle and has a good feel to it. Plus it has repeat strike capability unlike Paras...

These Swedish Mausers can be addicting as they are great collectables. The M94s are the most desirable and interesting of the lot. My favorite was this one with n Elm stock.
