I have all of a suden grown attached to this neat litle round. Its goes as fast as a typical .22lr standard, shoots 45-60 grn. bullets. Not the best ballistics, but it was desighned a long ago for close range self defense with pocket autos. I may end up using a Taurus flip up .25 pocket auto for a conceal carry gun. Sometimes pocket autos can kick with.32auto configurations since they are so small. the .25 doesnt, shoots just like a .22 with a bit extra force. They hold 9 rounds, so from a yard away wont be hard to kill an attacker with that much rounds...or give it to em in the head.
