    Its a self-cycling revolver. A Mateba.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Aha......heard about the Mateba before....probably an expensive gun, since I've never seen one in person. Heard they are pretty rare.

    Shot one of these at the Arlington Range last year. A .44 Magnum and it was fun. Because the barrel is lower and closer to the centerline of the overal gun the recoil is more of a "straight back" action and the muzzle doesn't climb as much. That said, I wouldn't buy one. Too big and bulky with far to much to go wrong. Kind of defeats the main purpose of a revolver, it's simplicity and reliability.
