    Another title could be Mouse Gun's Are Fun.
    I would guess many of us have one or more Mouse guns. So what is a mouse gun?
    To me they are small auto's and mostly are .22 LR, they are small and you can hide them in the in your shirt pocket. They cost very little to shoot and are great fun. Many you can purchase for a third or less than a full size auto and there is no doubt that if you do own one you probably shoot it a lot more than your 9's, .45's etc.
    Some of the mouse guns are .25,32,380 as some of these are just as small as the .22LR, however they cost much more than the little .22 to shoot.Beretta makes two that can be called moure guns, ie, Bobcat .22lr and the Tomcat .32 both with the tip up barrel and Kel-Tec has the .32 which is the smallest .32 made.(I think) and their .380. We have to include the Colt .25 and the Browning .25. There are more, but I have owned or now won most of them.
    So here's what I have fun with, How About You ??
    Beretta 950BS .22 Short
    Beretta Bobcat .22LR
    Walther TPH .22LR
    Colt Junior .22Short (Made by Astra)
    Astra Cub 2000 22Short
    Kel-Tec .32 ( Carry )
    Looking for a nice Iver Johnson Mouse Gun in .22Lr.

    Shooting .25's is fun. Loading them is not (my fingers are too big to fiddle with the cases and bullets). I have 2000 bullets sitting here waiting for me to get up the ambition..........

    I'm also a big Walther TPH fan, lots of fun there in the tiny pistols. I just sold my .22lr but I kept the harder to find .25acp.
    I also have a nice PPK/S in .22lr, a really solid gun.
    I have a clone of your wanted TP22, the American Arms PX22. It's OK, but not a TPH.
    My favorite may be my Daewoo DP22, a Walther PP clone. Great gun.
    My oldest and most used is my venerable and trusty Seecamp LWS32. I love this tiny mouser.
    A little on the large side by two other .32acps I really enjoy are my Walther PP and my Sig P230. Very high quality and reliable fun.

    My kids love the little FN .25 ACP. I just wish ammo were a bit cheaper. :eek:

    I tend to think of them as mostly .25 and above. I hardly shoot my mouse gun, LCP, because it is just not fun to shoot and the ammo is expensive and somewhat hard to find locally. I'd much rather be shooting my cz75b.

    I've owned a number of different mouse gun over the years. Two most useful at the moment are a Taurus PT-22 (cheap to shoot and reliable) and a Sig P238 (go-to light duty carry).

    Hay pockets, what a list. Can I come to your range and play with some. What a hoot that would be.
    1KPerDay, great photos and you are doing right with the young one's.
    My 10 year old grandson likes the little Astra Cub and the Colt Junior, they are really the same and shooting .22 shorts have really no recoil and just a little POP and with ear muff's on.
    I have put Ivory grips on my Beretta Bobcat Stainless and I think I like it the best, but I am really not sure so I think I will shoot them all again this week and still not be sure. And a good time was had by all.
