I had a Daly. Sold it to upgrade. It was a fun big 1911.



with my V10 ported.



I am now shooting this little pistol. RIA officers model. Love it!

When I (and the family) go backpacking in the backcountry, weight is everything. We weigh all our equipment, food and clothes, to the ounce. We are very careful about what we take, because on a 3 to 5 day trek in the wilderness you don't want to run out of the necessities, but want to take as much as possible.

I would like a pistol that is light in weight, but loud. Most of the "emergency" situations that one runs into in the wilderness, require noise, not power. If you confront a bear (or cougar or wolf), noise is the first thing you use to clear the area.

Also, if you get lost and are trying to be found (if you don't have a emergency tracking device of some sort), having something loud to shoot in succession can help.

Is there a quality, low caliber, loud, lightweight pistol, out there ?

Give me some suggestions.

If I do end up in a situation, face to face with a dangerous animal, I know that aim is more important than caliber.

I am not a hunter, so this would be only for protection.

I was rather surprised how accurate I was with this little guy. I don't imagine I have fired a noisier little booger.



It shoots a .454 casull round. This is the .45cal, .454 casull, and a SW 460.



Light weight but packs a huge punch

Interesting, thanks. I'll look into it.

I don't imagine that I'll be using a pistol like this much more than whatever it takes to get used to it at a range. It's not like I'm looking for a daily driver, just for specialty use, emergency use. Something that'll be there if the need ever arises.

Kel-Tec P3AT + 13 rounds of .380 (2 mags and a round in the chamber) + Uncle Mike's size 1 pocket holster = 15 ounces in a package only slightly larger than a wallet.

Fire it without hearing protection, and your ears will be ringing.

Lightweight, small package, loud bang, dual function. This is the american derringer model 1. I have one of these, 45 colt (not ACP) or 410 shotshell. For the fire power and the size, best carry gun I have ever owned, and stainless, so no rust.

Pic didn't show, no pic at the photobucket location. Not quite sure, you say "or 410 shotshell", does this mean it's a single shot ?

Amy had one of these in .32 for awhile
She definately got attention whenever she took it to the range, loudest gun I've ever heard and all you see is this little fireball coming out of her hand. all the guys would gather around to see what she was shooting.
Not reall good for accuracy but definately easy to conceal and makes one heck of a big boom.

No, not single shot, it's an over/ under barrel combo and willl shoot both types of shells out of either barrel. The pic shows in my view. Check out americanderringer.com it will give you all the specs. Awesome little BIG gun. Skeeter, I don't know why Amy had an accuracy problem, unless she was trying to shoot way out there, I can hit cans at about 40-60 feet with mine, as long as I shoot the low velocity loads anyway, when shooting any of the high power +P loads, my accuracy went to hell, which I found was due to the bullet tumbling as it exited the barrel, because there is not enough barrel to stablize the round with that fast of a load.

Oh, and as for small, it will fit in the open palm of most peoples hand. MOG, if you want, and you're headed up this way (PM for directions) I'll take you out and let you shoot it, to see if it's something you like and would feel comfortable with, just let me know, maybe we could make a wheeling trip out of it or something.

Actually after reading my other post and thinking hard on it. I have 2 44 cal. civil war replica black powder pistons. One remington and the other colt. They are great fun at the range but speed loading is non existant as you all can imagine.

Since we're showing baby pictures, here's mine. Not as pretty as she used to be, but still shoots like a dream. I call her the Pig because she eats anything without complaining. Put 2000 rounds through her one weekend at an endurance match (no cleaning allowed), sure glad ammo was included in the entry fee.

I simply meant as compared to a full size pistol.

Spent several years on our Special Ops Team (SOT) as a sniper and sniper team leader. Now I am on a Special Projects Unit (a hybrid narc unit), but still end up doing a quite bit of sniper and entry work (way more than I did on the SOT). I might go back to the tac team when the kids are older and more able to take care of themselves.

Looks good. Have you gotten to take it out and shoot it yet? Give us a range report.

shot it as soon as i got it. she kicks a little more than the p89 i normally shoot. so all my shots and i mean all were about 3-4 inches to the left of the bulls eye. i was figurin it was just the recoil jerkin my hand to the left so i turned the other way and shot a few left handed and it pulled them all to the right of the bull. so i think its just the recoil. i'm sure i'll strat bringin em in closer after shootin a few times

My two babby pics the Ruger 22 for plinking
and the S&W 357 mag for when I go take the dogs for long walks in the woods. You never know when a coyote, skunk, or porcupine might try to ruin your day.

If you want a 9mm to play with, the Springfield XD9 and Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm are both a joy to shoot.

Just go put something in your hand, and see what feels best
