Beretta introduced their U22 Neos
futuristic-looking twenty-two semi-automatic pistol several
years ago, and it has proven to be a reliable and accurate
pistol, suitable for hunting, plinking, and informal target
shooting. The Neos has an excellent set of adjustable sights, a
rail for mounting optical sights, and comes with two steel
ten-shot magazines. We have reviewed the Neos in-depth here on
Gunblast.com; first by Paco
Kelly back in 2003, and again by
me in 2008.
A bit newer to the market is the dandy little
Kahr CW380 semi-automatic 380 ACP pocket pistol. The CW380 is a
more-affordable version of Kahr's
excellent P380, the main differences being that the CW ships
with one magazine instead of two, has different sights and
rifling, and it sells for $245 US less than the P380. For 40
bucks, you can buy a spare magazine, pocket the extra $205, and
give up nothing, or better yet, spend that $205 on a Crimson
Trace Laserguard, and you will have one of the best 380
pocket pistols in the world. Again, I
have reviewed the CW380 on Gunblast.com a little over a year ago,
and I refer the reader to that review for details.
Since I have reviewed both of these pistols
before, I won't re-plow the same ground here, but will instead
concentrate on what makes these "colorful" pistols
different, and that is, they are purple. They are not entirely
purple, but the little Kahr has a purple polymer frame, and the
Beretta has purple grip inserts, as well as a purple rail atop
These are limited-production pistols, built
by Kahr and Beretta exclusively for Davidson's; one of our
nation's premier firearms distributors. These pistols are in
stock and available now, and can be purchased from any gun
dealer who does business with Davidson's. However, these pistols
can also be purchased online, by going to www.galleryofguns.com.
Once there, click on the GUN GENIE, and
search for the firearm that you wish to purchase. You will get
bids for your business from at least three gun dealers in your
area, and the prices shown will reflect sales taxes and transfer
fees. That way, you can compare the total prices, and choose the
dealer to which you want your firearm shipped. The process is
very simple. When the firearms arrives at your local gun shop,
you go in, fill out any necessary papers, pay the balance due,
and take home your firearm.
Another benefit of buying a firearm through
Davidson's, whether you buy it off your dealer's shelf or order
through the GUN GENIE, is that you get Davidson's guarantee. If
the firearm is not right, Davidson's will replace it.
these are two great pistols and proven designs, available in
basic black as well, but if purple tickles your fancy, they are
only available from Davidson's, and only for a limited time. As
of today, they have tem in stock and ready to ship, so check
them out at www.galleryofguns.com.
