    I just bought a really cool little Manhurin PP in .22LR. When I went to put it away in the gunsafe, I suddenly realized that I have accumulated a decent collection of subcompact pistols without any real intent. One of these days, I think I'll round it off with a Bersa and a Keltec, maybe even a 9mm Khar if I come across a bunch of extra money.

    Does anybody else collect pocket guns?

    I love what you did to the CZ-70. What finish is that and who did the work?

    I uised to have just one pocket gun, a Tomcat. The Tomcat went bye-bye about 2 weeks ago when I found a nearly new S&W 624 4 inch that I had to have. Other pocket guns I have are:

    Kel-Tec 3AT
    NAA Guardian .380
    Walther PPK
    Walther PPK/s
    S&W 640
    Taurus 85TI
    Taurus 650
    Colt Detective Special
    Kahr PM9
    Kahr MK9
    Makarov (East German) - although this is a little big for a pocket gun).

    I might have to get one of those CZ-70s (my dad has one). Yours is positively gorgeous.

    I like the cool little Colt and Browning Sven!

    Thanks Southpaw. I picked this one up for cheap at a gunshow a while back. The finish was really worn and the sharp corners bothered me so I dehorned and GunKoted it myself. I also experimented with some stipling on the front strap of the grip by masking it off, giving it a good wet shot of GunKote, sprinkling some sandblast material then giving it another shot of Gunkote to seal it in. I used a similar technique on the CZ-50 grips using epoxy, aluminum oxide grit, and covering with polyeurothane spray. I really like the way it came out. the gun is much more comfortable to shoot and doesn't squirm under recoil. I did it about two years ago and the finish and grips have held up real well. I do have to put the more slick plastic CZ-70 grips back on if I use it as a CCW though.

    Here's a couple closeup pics

    I don't collect them.
    I merely accumulate them.
    Mostly snubnose revolvers, although there are a few .22, .25 and .32 auto pistols here too.

    I accumulate vs. collect also. I bought an Autauga .32 and I also like to have a back-up so I bought another. Then the P-32s came, bought one, got another for a back-up. Then the P-3AT came out, bought one, will get another before long.

    I only have one pocket pistol.

    A P3AT.

    Everything else is full size or compact.

    I don't have any yet but plan on eventually getting a CZ RAMI, right now it's looking like it will be a 9mm unless I get a good deal on a full size CZ in .40 pretty soon.

    Small guns just don't normally appeal to me. 9mm is the smallest cartridge I'd trust against 2 legged threats but I can see the value of smaller guns for snakes and other pesty vermin. Obviously they're not gonig to be a 1st choice for target shooting :)

    I like Kamicosmos' SP101 which I've gotten to shoot a few times and it's gotten me looking at the Taraus Protector series of revolvers. I think I've even found a couple models that are lightweights but aren't ported! :what:

    Could it be they're finallally listening to some of their customers :confused:

    Two and counting, but I could see that number easily rising to six or seven.
