Neat little gun

I always wanted one of these in nice condition. I had one that was close to a junker & sold it, but I never found a nice one. Damned if I know what I'd do with it if I had it; I just think they're neat.

Everytime i get around to buying one, for some reason i come home with something else. Last two times i was close to a lttle vest pocket just like the one shown, i brought home little pocket revolvers in 32 colt.. Anyway this happened on two diffrent occasions so i guess im either not supposed to have a 25 or im supposed to have 32's whch ever..I love the old prewar bakelite plastic grips. Think Colt called them something else, but believe they were bakelite. Just funny as both times i was looking at a Colt 25, i wound up with Colt pocket (pre positive, so around 1915 mfg on both.. both flat latchers.. one's a little 2" that i can't get back from the wife with out a battle, it was reblued, and beautiful, the others in original close to 95% blue, and both sets of grips are in good condition.. by the way you asked on the 19 it it was P&R, and yep, sure is really like it..

done deal. Not sure how effective it will be, but the effort has to be made. The unfortunate reality is they "expect" to have so many thousand sigs in opposition, then over state what those numbers are, and when asked by media say well the opposition wasn't nearly as large as we expected.

morning CW.. agree

Think you have to learn that art (dealing from inside the deck) before taking a seat in congress..
Well, the vote is going on in Mass.. This should be an interesting day..

by pulling the lever. I always go down the list and try to remember who I have
heard good or bad about and vote that way. Just because they are a
party member dosen't make them right for the job.
Right now I'm worried to death about number one. He has gone out of
his mind with power.

feel like were not really represented by either. I'd like a serious libertarain candidate, but afraid that only pulls votes away from the conservative on the ticket. I agree about voting line by line. What i would really like to see are term limits, i'm amazed that the founding fathers in thier wisdom didn't see that little problem on the horizon. Brown at least would stop the super majority, and force the administrations hand on health care.. I really think the message sent by electing a Republican in Mass is going to reach more politicians than anything else. The 2X4 to get the mules attention analogy. When you remember that this has been a Dem seat since 52 (one of the Lodge's was last Rep.) and that Mass has a 4 to 1 ratio of registered Dems.. wooohaaa does this send a message, just hoping Brown A) Wins.. and B) they play Ray Stevens "we the people" at the victory party..
