Don't step into the kawoosh...
It appears California is trying to pass/has passed a law that make now sense, at least to me. This is no better than the serial number on a firearm in the first place, an may actually be worse/less practical.

I have replaced the firing pin in my concealed carry firearm, which according to cali law would now make my firearm illegal (if the firearm orginally had the microstamping)

Smith & Wesson is following Ruger out of the California semi-automatic pistol market in what is almost certain to be a mass exodus if the law stands:

Because Law Enforcement is exempt, this law is ripe for abuse, corruption and manipulation. When only police have guns, you live in a police state, as black communities in CA have long known.

More companies should take a stance like Barrett, and boycott any state that creates extraneous anti-gun laws. Lets see how law makers feel when no one will sell their cops and private security companies guns.

None of these silly laws will be good enough until guns are totally banned outright.

Good grief.

I'd hate to see a pattern at 50 feet.

I hope there's a laser built-in that 'thing'?
Ever shot the Rhino? It's a snub nosed revolver with an inverted barrel and cylinder, which puts the bore inline with the wrist.

Even .357 feels light compared to your transitional snub nose which is punishing to shoot. What pattern are you referring to?

However, for those wanting a longer site radius:

ha! You clearly don't understand REAL FREEDOM!



I should mention, I HAVE one of these. Nothing says insane like a shotgun that can fit in a coat pocket,

I know a few guys with Serbu shotties. Not my style.

I went another route :)

Just curious. ;)
I would highly recommend one, its called a Super Shorty.

I do not carry for " protection ". But I do like using my own range. Its the most ridiculous weapon I've ever bought. Great for clay shooting.

I always get " That thing isn't real! ...WHOA! "

A pattern of shot that a reasonably accurate marksman could achieve on a target at 50'.

The margin for error with a sight-line so short is much greater than the longer barrelled model you also pictured.

If you could put a laser on target the length of the barrel would be of less consequence.

Honestly I do not know.

I know I didn't cut it down.

Here is what I do know, I walked into a Gunshop about 20miles North of Tallahassee, had the backround check run, came back. Gave them money. Got the weapon.
