    Hadn't seen those before. Looks kind of nice. I had one for awhile. Just a 22 but nothing to hang onto, couldn't hit the barn wall from inside.

    I'd like to see one of those in person, I'd probably try it again. Fool me once don't cha know?

    I had one of the old ones for years and concealed carried it until I got my license then switched to a SS TPH in .22LR... until I had problems with some rounds not firing, then I switched to the PM9 and larger ones, along with the P380, on my hip now.

    I can testify that I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, but maybe from the inside I might have a chance. I swear that I could stand 10 feet, or closer, to a man-sized target and point that little thing at the middle of the target and miss. I might be hurt, though, the cylinder edge could slice my thumb!

    Considering that I kept the derringer in a velcroed coin purse, that wasn't very "armed". My buddy carried one like that as well, and I always tried to get him to switch to center fire. The last time we went to a range and his .22 pocket pistols had a low successful firing rate, he finally agreed with me that the ammo became very iffy after being carried for a while!

    .22LR ammo is iffy even fresh from the factory, at least the stuff I've been shooting. That's enough reason for me not to rely on it for SD. But that little top break jewel does look like fun. I wish they made a "real" size gun like that.

    The coin purse was a worse idea than pocket carry to me. My buddy always claimed that he would know when a "situation" was developing and he needed to start digging out the derringer! I tried to convince him otherwise. I carry at the 4:30 position IWB with un-tucked and oversized Tees or Polos and can sweep the shirt up and draw with one hand quickly.

    That last range trip... a few months ago... was an eye-opener for him, though. A large percentage of his .22 ammo wouldn't fire and not all had been carried a long time. Center-fire ammo and frequent ammo rotation or replacement is very advisable.

    Picked up my Ruger Charger and the Iver Johnson Break Top 22 today. Very pleased once again. Evidence photo's hopefully later this evening.

    Along with being factory nickel that thing is worth some coin.
    Now you tell me. I gave one away to a relative in need a couple/three years ago.

    Just didn't want one bad enough to spend over a grand for an Uberti clone.
    We have an interim chief who I found was into old stuff like me. Toys, he's got a collection of Japanese helmets and just got a genuine Japanese battle flag.
    Anyhow I did some swapping, gave him a nice Arisaka with the bi pod, original sling, the mums not ground off, good shape and a Super Blackhawk 7 1/2 which I haven't shot in years and I still have a 10 1/2" so got that base covered.
    Anyhow I got these........


    Nice!!

    Speaking of breaktops, I'm kinda jonesing for the new NAA Ranger II convertible. Yeah, it's a novelty, but the minis are like little jewels:

    Being something of an NAA mini collector, I keep having to kick myself where it most hurts to keep from buying one. I liked the original Ranger...was sad when it didn't make it into production and I lost out. The Ranger II, as a breaktop, should be just as or even more functional.

    I actually don't consider the "full size" birdshead minis a novelty. A 1 5/8 " .22 mag has been in my carry remuda for a long, long while. I refer to it as my Speedo carry gun. It's always been dead stone reliable and, unlike the Col and other barn challenged here, I'm good with it at close quarters offensive/defensive range. It does help I have small hands. And my 1 1/4 inchers don't, keyhole, fare as well.
