Inherited a 25 auto

From my Dad. I would like to run a couple hundred rounds thru it but can not find ANY ammo. Is this because of the recent hysteria or do they not make any anymore. It's a cheap little pistol, but I would still like to shoot it

No problem. I did a few other searches looking for more, but it is kinda hard to find. People are buying ammo for any gun right now and the .25 isn't a popular round so there wasn't much of a supply to draw from.

The Colt "Vest Pocket" - the original CCW auto...

Despite limitations of the cartridge, was there anything John Browning couldn't, from a firearms design standpoint, do?

I know what you mean. Every commercially successful repeating arm, since the 1894 Winchester (and a f*cking crime that weapon is no longer in domestic production), has been a John Browning design, a derivative of a Browning model, or, at the very least, heavily influenced by Browning designs and design principles.

From the little .25 CCW guns, all the way through teh M2HB...

I wish it were a Colt. It's a Sterling. Very cheap piece. Saturday night special

I agree with the rest. 25 ACP is pretty uncommon now. Even though it's like 1/3 the size of a 9mm, it's more expensive because companies don't make much of it anymore.

As a defensive round, it's crap. It's pretty much just a novelty gun. I inherited an old Italian 25 ACP from my grandpa. I've gone out and shot it once and it was fun, but I don't see me racking up the round count very high.

I got one passed to me as well.

Does anyone think its worth keeping for anything other than a paperweight?
