Then there is my all time favorite, the P-32; the venerable Davis
original pocket pistol, an awesome value. Does anyone know that
song that starts with, "The bitterness of poor quality is remembered
long after the sweetness of cheap price is forgotten?"

Priceless comment: The Jane Fonda of the handgun world.

I cannot use the language on this forum to describe the contempt I have for her so Wheedum's comment put a big smile on my face.

Some of my friends who were former guests of the Hanoi Hilton have
particularly poignant feelings about Hanoi Jane. I wonder which
Memorial Day event had her as the guest speaker.

Who knew? They have Memorial Day in Hanoi now? Perhaps their Memorial Day is to commemorate her aiding and abetting our former enemy.

I have to restrain myself with this miscreant (expletive) who, in my view, should have been tried for treason.

Recently, I found a copy of one of her old movies which some guest had left in the cabin. I threw it into the fireplace and watched it burn.

Ah, yes, I had forgotten about the Davis P-32 and its big brother, the Davis P-380. There's nothing quite like the pure excitement of shooting a pistol made with die-cast zinc alloy parts. And for a real adrenalin rush, load one of those suckers with +P ammo and let 'er rip! (Just be sure to have a tourniquet in your range bag in case the thing explodes in your hand. ;) )

As a matter of fact the P-380 did explode in a man's hand during
his first range session with it. He had an injured hand and a shell
casing fragment in his eye requiring surgery.
The product liability lawsuit was settled in 1995 with Mr. Davis
paying $40,000 to the plaintiff.

$40K? Could not have been a very good lawyer. Zinc alloy parts? My God. Happy to say the closest I have ever gotten to one is in a photograph.

That is clever but the pink grips are still on the pistolero.
