    A new CR acquisition for me. Finally found one in good shape at an affordable price.

    Caliber .380. Made by Remington from about 1923 to about the beginning of WWII. It had the bad luck to emerge in the depression years when new gun sales hit an all time low. Pederson designed. I tried the one pictured out last afternoon with the Silvertips. Pap, pap, pap, pap, as fast as I could pull the trigger. No malfunctions even though the hollowpoint invention was a half century away from the end of the pistol's manufacture. The grip angle is similar to that of the Luger, and it is equally easy to point. A single column magazine leaves the pistol just as flat as a Colt 1908 .380, but with a much more ergonomic handle.
