    The end result was good

    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    Derringer ... She fired two shots, so it's a good thing Mr. Felon didn't realize she was out of bullets.

    I wonder if it was one of those High Standard derringers that we're pretty popular in the 70's? I have one, they are well built, just wish mine was .22 magnum. Well I guess it doesn't really matter now, doubtful I'll ever CC it.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Would you feel better about a .38 derringer?

    Not if you can't hit the broad side of a felon with it.
    One problem with mouse guns is the fact they have almost no sight radius,unless you practice with one at more than bad breath distances you can miss big time,especially when your adrenaline is going thru the roof and your cocking the hammer and jerking the trigger,then add night time.The fact she fired shots scared the BG off,but those rounds went somewhere.If your gonna carry a gun fior SD then practice with it,if you can't hit nothing with it ,then get a gun you can hit what your shooting at

    Of course you have good points. I was just showing this .38 for informative purposes. My EDC is a little bigger, the LC9, which a lotta folks don't like anyway.
