Derringer with a Laser: Baddest Gun of All Time or Still a Novelty?
Who in their right mind would want a Derringer with a laser? I know just the person, but first, I’d like to tell you a short story.
Four or five years ago, a friend of a friend owned a gun shop located out in the Philadelphia Suburbs. Every once in a while I would get a phone telling me all about this great new deal. You see, the gun shop owner would offer specials on products ordered in quantity. So, if this friend of mine could find two other friends, he could work out a decent deal on various guns.
It wasn’t uncommon for me to get phone calls about these odd deals (they were never modern guns and always something off the wall). The prices were appealing but I always found myself wondering “What the hell would I do with one of those?”
One day my phone rang, I picked it up and my friend was on the other end. The conversation went something like this….
Friend: Hey, I just got off the phone with my buddy and he has a great deal for us
Me: What is it this time?
Friend: If we each buy a Derringer, he’ll give them to us for $200 a piece
Me: What am I going to do it a Derringer?
Friend: We’ll shoot them up the mountains. Come one, it’ll be fun
Me: Nah, I’ll wind up shooting it once then it will sit. I don’t want a novelty gun
Friend: C’mon these things are great, They shoot .45 and .410!
Me: Seriously, what do you want with a tiny little gun that shoots shotgun shells?
Friend: I want to shoot clays with it.
Friend: You still there?
Me: Nah, man. I’ll pass ::laughing::
As you can see, ‘that guy’ that would love a Derringer with a laser is a friend of mine.
