    James Bond needs a new gun, even Her majesty's Secret Service can't get hold of .380 any more.
    I think it should be this:

    Did you mean Jericho 941? Wait that is not possible, KBI went belly up. Too many names same gun.

    I am with you and James Bond is due to a new gun, maybe he will get Walter PPS.

    there isn't much of a choice unless Bond is going to start using the SP22

    Interesting site on the history of James Bond's guns:

    http://www.vincelewis.net/bond.html

    I will point out that in the novel (can't recall the name now) his .25 cal Beretta did not jam, as stated. With silencer attached, it got caught in his waistband as he was trying to draw it. Rosa Kleb was able to kick him with a poison needle, and that's how the novel ended. IIRC, Fleming's original intent was to have him die off, but he was brought back in the next novel as having survived the poisoning.

    I'm pretty sure James shot a .25 cal. Beretta 418... some called it a "lady's gun", until "Moonraker" in 1958. Then, he was issued a Walther PPK in .32 cal. I guess shot placement has always been important!

    What do you mean, he can't get .380?

    I ordered a bunch yesterday from MidwayUSA and it shipped this morning.

    Won't do much good to go to another gun if the nanny Brits force Bond to use rubber bullets.

    They couldn't give him anything bigger than a 9 mill ever? Hell, a 9 mill is a big bore.
    What would bond do with a .45 ACP? Shoot himself in the foot?

    Good excuse to watch Quantum again, with the best Bond yet (in my opinion).

    A PM-9 would be a better choice IMHO.
