Default A Look Back

At the 1908 Vest Pocket Model N Pistol.
Check out the little .25 cal.
Worth a little money now, between $600 and $850.

Like it or not, when the chips are down and lives are at stake, an armed citizen can be the "first responder." People who donít like guns invariably rely on people who have guns when their lives are in danger.

Back in the 1970s, my grandmother had a .25. It was a Beretta. She let me shoot and clean it once year.

It was about as reliable as a politician's campaign promises. Never put a box of ammo through it without a few jams (FTE/FTF). I don't know the history on her .25; it might have been abused, or may have been a lemon.

I also got one Kev. My son just tore mine apart... first time in 100 years. Damn, I wish that dirt could tell stories!

Won't admit how many thousands of years ago, but in the Army I carried a chromed Baretta .25 semi-auto backup gun... against regulations, of course, but nobody complained (at least, not out loud).

A decade later, my ex-wife quietly took the little pistol when we divorced.... drat! Nice, surprisingly dependable, piece of hardware (the pistol, not the ex!) that provided an extra bit of "peace of mind," so-to-speak.

Hmm, my ex took my Walther PPKS .380. Yeah, it has been 6 years ago and cannot let it go. That was my duty back up gun and means alot to me. I need to get over it, but I can't.

Damn Mark...that's vindictive !!

I would have gunsmith stripped it and handed over a plastic bag full of the parts...minus the firing pin and a screw...so that she could never use or sell it.

Here's something to look at while you pine away for that sweet relic...

My West German circa 1972:
