Ummmmm. I have this friend that has one.....

After this friend worked on it the little thing seems to go bang every time.

This friend also tells me the safety is not very safe....

No offense but your having issues with a $30.00 pistol. It cost $30.00 for a reason.

I bought mine new for $39.95 back in the mid 80s.
I will admit mine shoots fine with CCI blazer ammo in both FMJ or hollow point ammo. The instructions clearly state that the pistol should never be carried with a round in the chamber and I agree 100% that the safety isn't too safe
Seriously it's a novelty item and I shoot it just for laughs. In the past 15 years or so, I am sure I've only fired it once every 5 years and just a few mags for kicks. What is it good for? It's great to break up the monotony when you are shooting your XD or other quality arm. Whip out that chromed beauty and go to work on that soup can at 10 feet. CCW or home protection? Uh...........no.

My dad has one, back in the 80's he bought 2 one for him and one for mom. Too bad moms got stolen by some jerk ex-boyfriend. I don't think I've ever shot it though. About the only thing I can tell you about it is in regards to the ammo, which costs about as much as .45ACP last I looked.

In all honesty, they are great for saving your life.
Just carry it UNLOADED and if your ever assaulted, toss it to the BG's feet and that will distract him while you pull your XD!

i would really like a working 25 acp but i would personally carry FMJ since with a HP penetration would be really shallow
