    You mean when you can't bring a gun, you bring one of those.

    I love the look of the Tomcat and also the Bobcat. They are beautiful little guns. I'd be proud to own either of these. A guy I know was selling off his collection of guns and he used to have a Bobcat. Thought that I'd be able to get it from him but alas he traded it for a Beretta .22LR. I bought the Beretta which had stamped on the slide 1948. In the end I didn't care for how the Beretta's magazine was removed (via a toggle type button on the bottom of the pistol grip) because it was clumsy and took too much time to switch so I sold it. Still wanting a Tomcat or a Bobcat but will have to wait until I have more discretionary funds to buy one.

    Someone once told me that the best way to protect yourself with a .25 ACP pistol is to cover it thickly with Vaseline.
    He said that when you shoot someone with a .25, you will make him so angry at you that he will grab your little pistol away from you and then shove it up into a very personal nether orifice.
    And that's when the Vaseline coating will protect you.

    Now that is funny.

    Still, one must admit a .25 will sting, and can kill.

    One last comment...

    Jeff Cooper told the story of a woman who kept a loaded .25 Browning on her nightstand, next to her telephone. One night while she was fast asleep, her phone rang. She picked up the .25 Browning by mistake, and put a bullet up her nose.
    The next morning, she appeared at her doctor's office, complaining of a painful sinus infection. The doctor probed, and found and removed the bullet, and a day later she was just fine.
    She never complained of a sinus problem after that. The bullet had opened up the passageway, and she could breathe unimpeded from then on.

    So, yes, the .25 ACP is truly effective...for something or other.

    Actually, I really do like the "little beastie".
    But, as long as we are having a bit of fun ragging on "Tomcat", here's my stories.

    I paid lots of $$$'s and three days of post-op pain to get my sinus cavities reamed.
    But that was before I heard Colonel Jeff's story. And before I swooped up my Tomcat for cheap.
    But, would the .32 Auto do a better ream job than .25 Auto ? I might have been too chicken to try.

    Besides MagTech ball ammo, I have 60 grain Speer GoldDot and 65 grain Federal Hyda-Shok hollowpoints.
    Is calling "that stuff" self-defense ammo grounds for a false advertising lawsuit if you ever "need to use it".

    Actually, the tip-up barrel makes it a fun little curio to play with at the range.
    It brings range rats in droves after they hear it actually "go bang".

    And, if Tomcat says ". . . I use the as CCW weapons, when u really can not bring anything bigger".
    Then I say, "more power to you". No pun intended.

    OK, that was worth at least 10 points...
