    Of course that's a Latin phrase because back in antiquity they 'got it.'

    Bump for MR. PM sent months ago. My daily carry now. Feels like someone painfully "punches" my palm as I shoot it but this is the perfect pocket-carry pistol during Summer while wearing cargo shorts.

    In the video below after the 9:00 mark the guy says after a few rounds it will work on your hands and I assume that means it will sore them up a little. Even with a little fatter grip you'll still feel the recoil. Not much you can do about it. I wear some stretchy, rubber coated gloves when I'm going to do a lot of shooting and that seems to help. I get them at Harbor Freight.

    I've got three NAA mini revolvers but I think I need one of the new Breaktop II revolvers.

    I use the CCI birdshot he talks about for shooting snakes and also for shooting mice in the house.

    I'm not allowed to carry up here in cuck country but i keep this on the nightstand since crime is through the roof in my town, especially break in's.

    Hope i never have to use it cause then i will be in jail for sure.

    That was a hilarious video.

    I have pistols and a ccp, but I rarely carry unless I am going to a city and I don't do that much anymore. Out here in the country my rifles work just fine for varmints and game.
    " If you are on the wrong road progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. There is nothing progressive about being pig-headed and refusing to admit a mistake. And I think if you look at the present state of the world it's pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistake. We're on the wrong road. And if that is so we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on. ---C. S. Lewis
