OK, I can't claim this is a gun I love (per the thread title), but I bought a new safe yesterday and was moving guns around and came across this little nickel plated POS. A Raven P-25 that was given to me by my father-in-law somewhere along the line. I can almost picture him buying it at a gas station for $50 back in the 1970's. He couldn't find the magazine so I tossed it in the back of the safe and forgot about it. I went ahead and ordered a magazine this morning, but I'm not sure I've got the nerve to shoot the thing.



I found just the hat to wear to the range with it:

Hell, that one has sights on it- it's the target model


and I'm not kidding, my Mother-in-Law has one that just has a bead on the front of the barrel, nothing in the rear. Can't remember the manuf, I've only seen it once

What does the law consider this? Pistol? SBS? Does it need a stamp?

AOW. $5 stamp, but the manufacturer over charges enough for it to make for the lack of $200 stamp.

Very cool one of those kick you're self in the ass times for not buying it.
WTF? And you can quote me. Holy shit, looks like a mad-max item. What is it, .32? How bizzare, but at least you don't have to reload every six rounds....

GF's pop pulled one of those out of the safe the other night - evil little bastard, that gun is. Just dry-firing it makes my hand hurt.

Probably best that you didn't since anything that fires more than one round per trigger pull is pretty much a no-no.

My father in law gave my wife one of these P-25's. I bought her a good handgun so it went into the back of the safe same as yours. I've shot it a few times. While hard to hold and the lousy sights make it pretty ineffective past 5yds or so...it was surprisingly 100% reliable. I'd never trust carrying it...but I guess it would work if you didn't have much money and needed a firearm. I've put about 150 rnds through it in total and probably won't put another 150 through it in my lifetime...but another gun in the safe is not such a bad thing.
