I ended up blowing my summer gun budget all at once. All three of them were roughly $760 total, OTD. I didn't plan it this way, but stuff happens. I really like my 40 caliber Sig P229, and I had read that Astra made a pistol very similar to it. I accidentally found a 45acp example in nice shape for about $250 plus shipping. The lighting in the picture is poor; it looks much better in person. Other than the caliber, it is different than the Sig in a few aspects: it has a steel frame instead of aluminum, the takedown lever is on the other side, and it has a heel magazine release instead of a button. I know that there are some other technical differences, but those are the ones I noticed right away. The DA trigger is dreadful, but the SA trigger is excellent. It was imported by Interarms. It is dry as a bone and filthy. I will definitely clean it before I take it to the range. Astra Model A100 by Tallball posted Jun 8, 2019 at 1:52 PM The LGS had a Bauer 25acp sitting in one of the glass cases for months, much longer than the owner has a tolerance for. When I came in to pick up the Astra and Kahr, I asked him how much he would take to get rid of it. He said he was in it for $189 and would give it to me for that. I offered $200 and skip the FFL fee on the two handguns I was picking up, and he said okay. I know it's a copy of the Browning design and I've heard they are well-made. It's in good shape other than cracked grips. The sights sure are tiny. I don't know much else about them, but it looks fun to shoot. It's the smallest handgun I've ever owned. Bauer 25acp by Tallball posted Jun 8, 2019 at 1:52 PM I didn't own a pocket-sized autoloader in anything larger than 9mm, but I happened to run across a nice Kahr PM40 for about $250 plus shipping and couldn't resist. I have also never owned a Kahr, but have heard nice things about them. The trigger pull is kind of long, but very light and smooth. I ordered a slightly extended magazine for it that has a pinky extension, and also a DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster. Recoil doesn't normally bother me, so I am expecting to shoot it just fine as long as I can get my pinky on it (which I can't do with the flush mag). If I like it and it shoots a few hundred rounds with NP, I may start carrying it in the cargo pocket of my shorts this summer. Kahr Model PM40 by Tallball posted Jun 8, 2019 at 1:52 PM I don't know very much about any of these particular pistols, so I would be grateful for any knowledge or advice that you could pass on to me. The Astra and the Bauer are pretty much just for fun. I might carry the Kahr some. Anything you could tell me about your experiences with them, their history or peculiarities, advice on ammo or spare mags, etc. would be much appreciated. Thanks for reading!
