    I've always believed that the most important shot is the first.
    If your target is still standing after 7 shots, you're in real trouble.
    I'll bet a 7 round clip is available that would allow a better grip for your pinky finger.

    I agree with that. The grip would be improved with a longer magazine but as it is it fits in my jeans pocket.

    Believe me, I'm an "old" Colt guy. I was in Viet Nam before the US Army switched from a Colt 1911 to a Browning High Power 9 mil. I've carried some version of 1911, currently a Colt Defender, since then.

    For decades I carried a Colt Lightweight 380. It's protruding hammer kept me from sticking it in my pocket so I wore it in a custom ankle holster. Not the easiest place to get to in an emergency.

    About a year ago I switched to the new Glock 43. It's a better cal. 9 mil with no hammer. Maybe best of all you can add their pocket holster which is fitted with a velcro material that keeps if in your pocket when you draw this single stack beauty :) You may want to consider one of these.

    G43 is pretty good. Carry it once in while in kydex holster appendix style. Just got the new Glock 48. Will give that a whirl once I find a holster for it.

    Man, you got big pockets if you're going to stick a Glock 48 in one.

    With the commander style hammer on this one I haven't had a problem with it snagging during a draw, though I have only been practicing with it for a few days. I had been carrying a Colt DS with a bobbed hammer but figured the flat sides of an auto would imprint less. This weekend I also intend on making a pocket holster for it. Call me a luddite if you will, but I am not a big fan of Glock or plastic guns in general (I know there isn't anything wrong with the current polymers, I just don't like them), I'd rather spend a bit more and find a 1903 pocket hammerless in .380 if the hammer turns out to be a problem.

    By the way, where are the photos of your Glock? We need photos!

    I'm the guy that hasn't learned to post photos. I know, you think after all these years I would have learned.
    The other reason I gave up my Colt Lightweight .380 is I wasn't comfortable betting my life on a .380.

    Boo, hiss! :whipped:
    I agree with your critique of the .380 and that's the main reason I am willing to accept a bit of a trade off. This little gun is about the same size as the pocket hammerless, though it weighs a bit less, which means it is small enough to comfortably carry in my pocket. The only drawback to it is the presence of a hammer, the fact that it is a 9mm makes it a better choice for an EDC gun, in my mind, than any .380. If they built a pocket hamerless in 9mm I would save up my money and get one.

    There was a 9mm updated copy of the old Remington Model 51 .380 pocket pistol called the R51 available for awhile, but it was full of bugs they don't seem to have ever worked out. No one seems to have given any good reviews of it.
    A light slim pistol it used a Pederson hesitation blowback system. The .380 didn't really need that system and the 9X19 needed something stronger.

    I prefer a revolver with barrel at or near four inches in a suede leather form fitting sheath, so with grip draped over the waist band the barrel lays just under the waist band, the cylinder mid way under the band at the belt buckle position.
    The longer barrel keeps the muzzle from migrating towards the family jewels. Doesn't get in the way when sitting down and is lightning fast to draw from sitting or standing positions.

    Does anyone owns Tavor here? I saw it at the range the other day and was really impressed with it. Wondering if someone can provide any input on it.

    Have seen the same shooter with a Tavor several times at the range. It was a jam’o’matic or FTF. I believe it was a operator problem more than the weapon itself. My guess is that it was out of the box with no prep and no maintenance.

    There's the Browning 1907, basically a beefer version of the Colt 1903 chambered in 9X20mm Browning.

    Yep, a real beauty. They should have just re issued this classic.

    Your 521 is quite nice.

    Old target rifles are fun.
