I like Mouse Guns, as I do all guns. That has not always been the case. My pistol of choice was a Smith &Wesson 686 357 with a 8 3/8 inch barrel back around 28 years ago. I did not know that you could hit anything with a barrel shorter than 6 inches. But over the years I have discovered that I could indeed hit what I was shooting at with shorter barrels. First 4 inch barrels then down to snubs. A 380 ain,t nothing to sneeze at. Heck, I,ve got a little Beretta Tomcat in 32acp that is pretty accurate. I have a Colt government 380 and a Sig 380. The Sig is surprisingly accurate and I don,t want to be on the receiving end of a 32 or a 380.Mouse guns, it depends on the gun, who is pulling the trigger, and ammo. Now don,t get me wrong, I don,t want to be in a gunfight with only my 32 Tomcat from a distance of 50 yards and the bad guy has 357. But I feel confidant with the Sig 380 under most self defense scenarios. It still surprises me how accurate it is. We forget, probably because we were not around then, that before the 357, policemen used calibers that were anemic by today,s standards in the early 1900s.
