    Cripes, one of those articles reports a 14.5 pound trigger! Good luck hitting anything. To wit, from Doug Larson's Handguns article: "Using a bench rest, I tried testing for accuracy at 25 yards, but not all five shots would hit the 8.5x11-inch target..." Now, I realize that match-grade accuracy isn't necessary for defense, but geez - this thing won't even hit the vitals repeatably from 25 yards.

    Walt Rauch gave it a semi-positive review in a recent issue of Combat Handguns. Rauch says it only works with hardball, as does the manufacturer, which is something you might consider when choosing it as a defense gun (and I can't imagine another use for this gun).

    14.5# trigger pull. That's when I lost interest. I'm not that good of a shot, anyway. Then I WOULDN'T be able to hit the broadside of the barn, from the inside.

    i've looked at them in a couple gun shows. the fit and finish is crude at best. it was as if they were slapped together in the cheapest way possible, which might explain the low price. i wouldn't rely on one of those to protect yourself with. save a few more pennies and get something at least a little better. sorry if i'm bashing on any cobra owners. i've owned two of their derringers and got rid of them both. they were like happymeal toys
