From my admittedly short testing sessions, I liked the mag release on the gen 4 over the gen 3. What would be your opinion on the gen 3 over the gen 4?



it just that the Gen 3's are rock solid and when the 4's came out they had problem after problem with them....

Ah okay, good data point. I'll keep that in mind.

The gen4 guns have extraction issues in the 9mm models. They've issued two revisions/reccalls but it isn't fixed. Im Still seeing a high rate of malfunctions in my classes. I'm a huge glock booster, but stick to gen 3 in 9mm.

That said, 9mm is the right choice.

Dialog from an old Weeds episode:

Woman meets dealer who is muscling in on her territory.
Instant Attraction.
Gets into his van for instant gratification.
Afterwards still decides to do what she came there for...
so she draws a small pistol and Dealer contemptuously comments
"that is a .22"
Woman: "Yeah, but look where I've aimed it".
Dealer turns deadly pale with fear.

This gives you what, about 50 rounds? For the
guy who's a really bad shot, or has seen too
many Steven Segal movies.

Cigarette lighter


$300 22 caliber pistol in belt buckle
THIS IS A NEW IN BOX NORTH AMERICAN ARMS 22LR MINI REVOLVER WITH THE BELT BUCKLE. THE GUN IS AN ALL STAINLESS STEEL 5 SHOT SINGLE ACTION MINI REVOLVER WITH A 1 1/8" BARREL AND ROSEWOOD GRIPS. IT COMES WITH A FACTORY BELT BUCKLE THAT HOLDS THE GUN.



Are these things really useful for self defense? What if you some kid runs up to you and grabs this gun out of your belt. Are you responsible?

Iíd say mostly ridiculous. You can get a proper used gun for about the same amount, one thatÖ just isnít so bloody ridiculous.

A .22 isnít a manstopper. Better than nothing, but just no.

Unless you wear an untucked long shirt, youíre going to run into legal problems in many states, and a hassling from LEOs in most others.

I had a gun about that size, a 6 shot Derringer that shot .22SR. It was bitch to manipulate, just too small for man hands.

Howís it secured? Well enough to stay put while being easy to release? I canít suss it out from the pic.

Iíd say itís mostly a fashion accessory or conversation piece. I wouldnít fault someone for carrying it, but as a serious SD measure? Thatís just nonsense.

Laws vary, but yeah, you can be charged with a crime if your gun falls into the wrong hands and is used for misdeeds. Iím sure most states would at least nick you for child endangerment or some kind of negligence, if not something more serious.

Edit: I'm not sure which is more absurd. It's too close to call.
