Re: Don't Laugh...25 Auto

As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you.

Any gun beats no gun, I personally would not like to be shot with anything - including the diminutive .25 auto. That being said, one of my adopted brothers was shot 3 times with a .25, then the thugs raven jammed. Martin proceeded to reduce the thugs bad attitude with several well placed taps with the 24 inch crescent wrench the thug was attempting to remove from his truck.
Martin (the would be victim) was released from the hospital that night.
It was several months before the thug was able to appear in court.
