    Free is about the right price. I am assuming you are talking about the little derringer. They made them in calibers larger than .22, but I think I would draw the line there.

    $30 piece.

    Yep... yzingerr, free is a reasonable price. You did'nt happen to get it from 1 of the Boyz in the hood did ya'? (jus kiddin')
    Davis also produced a couple of auto's in 32 & 380.
    I believe them to be the pre-ban assult weapons that our government wanted off of the streets.

    Good luck with it.

    Four out of five of the semiautos are prone to jamming. The one you can get to fire is inaccurate as hell. Most of them are more useful as a thrown object.

    get it really really clean and keep it wrapped up in your boot. if you ever nail someone, use it as a plant. it's great for a throwdown or a trotline weight. i am kidding about using it as a plant. i found one on a creek bank once upon a time. it came back free and clear so i plinked with the little .25. it was like riding a really big woman. it might be fun but you don't want anyone seeing you use it.

    Bought a .22 mag Davis and was satisfied with its feel, shootability, trigger and smallness. It can be hidden in the palm of your hand. So next I bought a .38 Special. Terrible !!
    Trigger pull got worse after shooting it. I would actually have to pull with 2 fingers to get it to fire. The recoil was horrible and I couldn't hit anywhere near where I aimed it. For a pocket pistol I settled on a Kel-Tec .32 auto and I'm very satisfied with it.
