Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

The Preacherman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a gun and learn how to shoot." The Gunman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a Bible and learn how to pray."

Let's put a 4'' semi-auto pistol and 200-rounds of ammo in this little box

 Can it be done?






PRESTO!  

I am very fond of this cute little Minx.  For self-defense, it has limitations but is better than nothing.  
For chasing empty tin-cans around a secured range, it is an afternoon of pure fun.

Every adult on earth should be free to own nothing less and a whole lot more.

I had one of those tiny Berettas for a while but had to sell it. It was reliable but would hammer bite my big paws real good. It was one of the few pistols I’ve owned that would actually draw blood.

Really like the retro ad for the Beretta. Would you happen to know the year of it?

That particular one, no. If I do run across the info I'll get it to you.

Below is the URL to another Galef ad from the early '60s.

Vintage Ads tags it "1960s" and "1968"

Thanks! It really is a nice compact. Very concealable.
