    Are you sure that's not a pic of a can opener?

    For less cost, you could just get an XDs and load up with one cartridge!

    Oh how I want a Liberator! I have always wanted to handle one, just for history sake.

    I hate to admit, but one of the replicas being produced right now is a serious consideration. The real Liberators are out of my price range and hard to find.

    i know right. I saw one at a gun show and I said forget that. I know they are about "as useful as nipples on a man"(where the hell did I hear that????) but ill be damned if they just dont have a cool factor to them.

    If you would pay $1000-$2000 for a 70 year old gun that cost $2.40 to produce ($32 today), and only fires one .45 acp from an smooth bore barrel, and you are seriously considering carrying it for self defense, you need to have your head examined.:shocked:

    I am quite certain that if you choose that as your carry gun you will not have to worry about the "mall ninja" label.

    Dont think he's gonna carry it. Clearly was trying to start a conversation about a cool piece of American history.

    One cool thing was how the US exaggerated the number of pistols dropped over enemy territory. The purpose was to make occupying enemy soldiers afraid to go to sleep.

    Yep it will open a can right up if you are close enough and Guns and Ammo did a write up on those a month or so back. I think someone is making a reproduction of the liberator.
