    What is with everyone and thier mother's coming out with polymer framed revolvers, .410/45 revolvers, and .380 auto pocket pistols. There seems to be really no noticeable difference between the features either.

    The coolest thing I saw on the Gunblast report was an "Angela Barrett". I would love to have one of those.:supergrin: I think there is lots of cool stuff out but how much of it will be reliable in today's quick to market strategy.

    I wonder which of these 380 wonder manufacturers is going to realize everyone is making a 380. Make a 9mm in similar size for a similar PRICE and they would have a edge. Especially over the company that already makes one but prices it well over $1,000

    Everyone and their mom? I have not heard that saying in a long time.

    Here is another sign from Taurus that the apocalypse is coming

    Polymer is cheap, and once one company does the expensive research to learn how to make it work if it takes off they would have a big price point advantage.

    So far I like all the guns posted in this thread. I don't get the problem. I want a small light revolver myself. I own a SW snubby, I like its dimensions but wish it to be lighter. I held the new Ruger at the gun show. Seemed like it was huge dimension wise.

    My mom makes only steel revolvers. But I agree about everyone else coming out with their version of polymer revolvers.

    Ha! Ruger beat them to the market on this one.

    I guess I'm the first to be intrigued by this. Anyone catch the picture of the girl holding an AR style 12g semi-auto shotgun? Anyone have any idea who ATI is?

    EMF's JR carbine is available in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. Calibers are easily interchangeable by switching barrels and Glock-compatible magazines, and bolt/ejection port is switchable for left-handed shooters.

    This is something I would be very interested in. <!--mstheme-->

    Does anyone have a link to compare the size of SIG's P238 Two-Tone .380 pocket pistol to other 380s? I like the idea that Sig borrowed a bunch of 1911 design components :broccoli:. I'm just not sure how big it is (if it's larger than a Kahr Mk9, I sort of don't see the point)

    Also, Barrett Firearms' Model 98 in 338 Lapua caught my eye (neither gun is polymer though).

    My hand hurts just looking at this baby. I thought my SP 101 was painful to shoot with full .357 loads. I can't imagine a plastic handcannon being fun to shoot.

    Scandium Revolvers > Polymer Revolvers. That is all.

    Thank you for your opinion on revolvers that haven't even been released yet.
