    anyone here own or used a beretta tomcat?

    Looking at picking one of these up, so hoping to find out if anyone here has used one, or if anyone happens to own one and wouldn't mind letting me and my wife shoot a few rounds?

    I've seen them for around $200 NIB. From what I can see they appear to be great little guns.

    I have a Baretta Tomcat in 22LR and it is what it is - a mouse gun that is somewhat susceptible to malfunction. (The slide spring prefers .22LR Magnum so as not to experience "stovepipe" ejection malfunctions.) Lubricating it well will reduce this tendency.

    Wild Boar - it was a pleasure meeting you and your daughter this afternoon. I hope I did not offend you or her when I referred to your daughter as the "hot chick in the second row". You will have noted by now that I "engage" my students, but I hope I did so without offending anyone. No disrespect was intended.

    You owe me a new netbook... Coke and electronics don't go well together. Got any pics?

    Anyway, I have always wondered about the reliability of a small .22 semi-auto. They actually look pretty cool, but I would want something that designed as an ACP.

    I'm actually interested in some more firsthand experiences with the Tomcat guns, or equivalent. I'm not looking to get one, just really curious.

    Yellow Cat stands corrected and is apparently not too sharp regarding other "cats". The .22LR mouse gun I have is a "Bobcat" and not a "Tom Cat". The Tomcat is indeed chambered in .32 Auto.

    I had a Taurus PT-.22...

    , and what had happened was the receiver would hit the end of the barrel on one side. I didn't know this, and it cracked the frame at the hinge point. It won't happen again, I'll never own another one. The Sn is on the frame, and they wouldn't replace the pistol. Another time the firring broke, and wedged in a striking position, after putting a full mag in I went to chamber a round, it fired, and a piece of the casing blew a hole in my finger. No more. boar out.
