Hay dragthewaters: Had an older friend a number of years ago who used to carry one in his pocket when we would all go out hunting. It was a funny sight, rifles, shotguns, magnum pistols, and a Raven 25 auto. One weekend I decided to bring along a couple of boxes of 25 ammo for it as he never wanted to fire it because he only had one magazine and didn't want the gun running dry. He just about schmidt when I pulled out the two boxes of ammo and we started crankin' away at some empty cans.
You're correct, they are not very accurate. This one shot low and to the left, but after a magazine full we figured out the Kentucky windage and skipped a #10 can around on the ice for a while. We even cleaned it up afterward and gave him a magazine of fresh loads - his were the originals he had purchased with the gun some 5 years before. Come to find out he had fired only one magazine of ammo through it. We had some jams, due to pocket dirt and no lubrication but after fixing that problem she worked out without hangup.
i shot a box of .25 after duck hunting at a bottle at about 20 yards and had a hard time hitting it, and one ricocheted off of it, i found one of the bullts really clost on yop of the frozen ground, hardly nicked, and i had a few jams too
no i thought it was just me but i had a heck of a time hitting that bottle at 15 yards even, the barrel is an ich if that, i guess that is part of the problem, and the grip is so short the slide wants to take a peice of your skin
Back in the early seventies a partner of mine had a call for an armed robbery,with the suspects being held at gunpoint by the owner of the liquor store. It seems that one of the acters decided that the old man at the cash register did not act fast enough and decided to shoot him in the face with the little .25. He did it three (3) times. The old guy still kept comming up with the two holer(they though it was his money stash)and put a round in each of the bad guys. Needless to say they both were still there when the patrol unit arrived. As a matter of fact,neither one of em could really say why they shot the old guy. He ended up going to the E.R. and had two rounds removed from his face.(1) was lodged in his sinus cav.one was lodged just above the left eybrow,just on top of the bone,and the other had just scratched his cheek. Interesting,they just could not get the two acters to talk for any reason.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHE. This was at point blank range he was hit at. I also know of a guy that got shot in the upper arm,and the round ended up in his heart killing him. Interesting. :-D :-D :-D :-D 8) stay safe king
