    They are very nice in hand.

    They have replaceable grip panels to adjust the grip size to your hand.

    The P22 is a very nice .22.
    Very user friendly.

    Found this waterproof case with pluck and pull foam at Harbor Freight for $12 with a coupon and had to try it.
    Its a Pelican case knock off.
    Waterproof, and solid.

    Damn nice case.
    Same size Pelican case is 50 bucks.
    After fitting, I sprayed the foam with a few coats of grey Plasti-dip to make it more durable.

    Case $12
    Plasti-dip $5

    They have bigger ones too.
    I got that small one just to see how nice they are.
    I'm impressed.
    Perfect for cameras, guns, mods, etc.

    I love Harbor Freight for stuff like this.
    :)

    The Hopkins and Allen Vest Derringer,

    In the late 19th and early 20th century Hopkins and Allen was one of the three major manufacturers of cheap break top and pocket revolvers, competitors with Iver Johnson and Harrington & Richardson. In 1911 Hopkins and Allen introduced a small single shot .22 short vest pistol that was an attempt to compete in a more highbrow market. The Hopkins and Allen derringer was a simple break top derringer that could easily fit in the palm of ones hand. At the time it was probably one of the smallest pistols on the market. To make the pistol more compact, it lacked a trigger guard but feature a fold out trigger.

    In an attempt to attract high class customers, every Hopkins and Allen vest derringer came complete with factory engraving, pearl grips, and a shiny brass Hopkins and Allen medallion. As a result, the Hopkins and Allen derringer was significantly more expensive than pocket pistols of its type. Unfortunately the Hopkins and Allen made the derringer too fancy. People wanted cheap pocket pistols, fancy decorated derringers were not only too expensive, but were quickly worn down by rigors of pocket carry. Hence, few people carried expensive, pretty, shiny pocket pistols knowing that they would become worn. In addition .22 short is one of the weakest calibers in production, hardly a manstopper, and the effectiveness of the Hopkins and Allen derringer was limited by its one anemic shot. Production ended in 1915, with only 1,400 being produced. Today they are very collectible, ranging in price from $1000 - $4,000 depending on condition.

    These aren't mine....yet.


    Pedersoli parlor pistols.
    The one in hand is a Guardian and the other is a copy of a Remington Rider derringer.
    maxresdefault.jpg
    These tiny pistols fire .177 cal. balls
    Thats the same size as a standard BB. They use no powder, just a percussion cap.
    These low powered guns were called Parlor pistols because they were used indoors, for plinking at parties, etc.

    I love derringers.
    Lol

    Those are modern copies of old style guns, and are available today.
    Not really expensive, and a blast to shoot!!
    You can legally buy these without any background checks or silly government regulations.
    They have less power than a pellet gun and aren't really weapons.

    Just for fun
    Jerry Miculek in action.
    Jerry is the best shooter on the planet.
    5 shots from a revolver in .57 seconds into a 4 inch group.
    6 shots, reload, 6 more shots in less than 3 seconds.

    The guy's skill is almost supernatural.
    THIS is gun control.
    ;)
