really like this THING..A bit much in recoil BUT don't figure I'll have to use it often,,hard to remember the last person I shot..Had one of the REXIO's first for defense but it being a single shot and me being a poor shot worried me some..Except for the weight it should work out well. I've heard that they are going to come out with a THREE incher soon..WOW,, too much recoil for sure..I always figured that the first shot with #6 to the face and the rest to the body should do it RIGHT..Afterall,,if they can't see me they can't hit me..modoc

    I have to admit to being kind of interested in one of these myself, just on principle; though I suspect that a .410 blast of #6 to the face and the guy won't have much of a face left- further hits will be rather extraneous.

    In one of the Charles Bronson movies, he shoots a guy in the face with both barrels of a 410 derringer he was carrying on his ankle as his backup gun.

    The 3" is allready out!

    A gun shop near me has allready sold 7 of them and only has one more in stock. He is ordering more and should have them very soon!

    I've looked at them, and cannot, for the life of me, find a use for one. It appears too unwieldy to carry. And what's the point of using it for home defense when a 410 shotgun would do the same job, only better...

    If you want to use shot in a handgun, use shotshells. If you want to use slugs in a handgun...well, that's real easy.

    I don't know...
    I just don't get it.

    But I don't have to and that's what makes our country great.

    They're giving one away at a raffle on MissouriCarry.com It seems this is the new "I Just Gotta Have One" gun lately. Everybody's talking about it.

    The guys at gunblast really like. As I am almost neighbors with them [:D] I respect their opinion. I want one!! For self-defense, not much would beat a load of shot.
