    Death to G.I. Joe! Cobraaaaaaaaa!!!

    Sorry, I couldn't help myself.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    OK OPFOR,

    As I sit here this morning watching the Polar Express with my sick kindergartner and browsing my favorite forums...that was certainly not what I expected to read!

    My laptop missed a coffee shower by the most narrow of margins!

    Hey, I can't be the only one on here who had a crush on Scarlett, can I?

    Sorry to get off topic - the Cobra guns look interesting, and I hope you get some more informative responses.

    I'm getting ready to buy one also, from what i've read online the 45 is the only one anyone recomends; It was designed by an Israeyi who now works for kimber;
    There are several good reviews of them online; and about $100 less than a taurus pt145 or 745.

    Every review I have read on them says they shoot well and are good guns, but they don't feed hollow points. So if you don't mind carrying ball ammo, EFMJ or something similar it wouldn't be a half bad gun.

    Anyone have an idea of Cobra pricing? I didn't see any mention on the site.

    Check gunbroker & auction arms; they usually have a few on there.

    I'd read this before I bought a Cobra, if I were you:

    http://www.handgunsmag.com/featured_...atriot_062207/

    Here are some feature of this "quality" pistol:

    The serrated trigger broke at 14 1/2 pounds after a fairly long pull and considerable stacking.

    There is no slide catch.

    No +P ammo allowed.

    Hollowpoints will cause feeding problems, use ball only.

    Accuracy: Average group size of 5.29 inches at 15 yards. The author couldn't keep all shots on a 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper at 25 yards!

    The extractor failed twice during the author's test.

    I'm not sure what this gun is for. You can't use self-defense ammo in it. Ball ammo penetrates too much for home defense. It's not reliable enough to bet your life on. You can't plink with it, unless you are shooting at an old washing machine at 10 feet or something like that.

    No thanks. There are plenty of quality used pistols for sale for what these things are selling for on Gunbroker ($275).

    As usual, you get what you pay for.

    Looking s some of the models, I am reminded of the Raven Arms, Jennings ,Calwestco and similar inexpensive, less than reliable pistols that have been made.
    My buddy owns a derringer , while it is a nice plinker/ toy, I would not trust it with my life. It appears cheap and low quality.

    You are mostly correct, from what i've read; Cobra firearms is a collection of raven etc that has sold out or otherwise gone out of business. The Patriot 45 was mfd. by Republic arms in california before being bought out by cobra. As i stated before, the 45 was designed by an Israeli gunsmith, and Olympic shooter, and if you search a little more, it does have several recomendations for it. Hell, i've wasted 250$ on other things, figured i'd try one of these out; you never know until you do.
