It is a very soft shooter.
I know "no mods", the gun is fun right out of the box with the 6" barrel, its just more fun with the 10" barrel.
Top of the list are the two I have chambered in 38/45 Clerke, one is a government model and the other is a Gold Cup.
Here is one that I assembled. This one is chambered in 45 ACP.
A close second would be any of my Ruger MK ll .22's
I do carry it and my draw and shoot time on a timer is about .60 of a second. I thought about designing and getting made a larger safety to allow a more positive safety but ultimately I just got used to the double action for the first shot.

Hi halfmoonclip, sorry for the delay in replying but I just casually read your comment now.
Pardini mainly produces .22L.R caliber pistols and carbines for Olympic-type competitions. If I remember correctly, at the last Olympics, in the rapid shooting pistol final at a distance of 25 meters, all ten shooters used Pardini pistols.
Yes, in my Country, Italy, the 9mm Parabellum caliber pistols are not lawfully available to civilians and therefore are not available on the legal market. The 9 Parabellum cartridges (in Italy called 9 Luger) are regularly available in the gun shops (it seems to me, however, only in Lead Round Nose loads) because some 9 Parabellum caliber revolvers, such as the S&W 940 have been regularly sold in Italy and can be used but only with LRN cartridges (we have very strange gun laws ...). If I remember well, also some 9 Luger carabines have been regularly sold some years ago but no more available now. I'm pretty sure 99% of 9 Luger ammo sold in Italy are purchased by cops to train with their personal pistol at the range at their expence.
Yes, the pistols chambered for the 9x21 IMI cartridge can shoot 9 Luger ammo. The extractor holds the case and I assume it gets some abuse by shooting the 9 Luger continuously.
From a ballistic point of view, the 9x21 IMI and the 9x19 Parabellum are substantially equivalent: they use the same bullets, the same gunpowder, primers, etc. The OverAll Lenght is the same. The difference is that the in the 9x21 IMI the bullet is held 2mm more by the case. Someone claims that the 9x21 IMI, all parameters being equal, is capable of delivering an intrinsic higher accuracy than the 9x19 Parabellum but I have no proof of this.
Tell us more about Italian gun laws.
Can American tourists rent the Popemobile?

Here in Italy 9x19 Parabellum pistols are factory chambered for the 9x21 IMI cartridge (I have 5 of them myself...).
All the other caliber pistols and revolvers are available.
Italian gun laws are unnecessarily crazy. We gun enthusiasts ask ourselves why but we can't give us an answer.
I'm sorry but I don't think I understand the meaning of your question about the Popemobile.
i became quite curious about them, but never had a chance to see, or handle one.

Its literally the only gun I own that I haven't modified at least somewhat.
