    That's not a big rat. In my early teens I harvested lots of rats for the peace of mind of my neighborhood housewives, using an air rifle. The big ones were about the same size of an adult rabbit.

    The bolt is either broken or missing in this one.

    That gun was missing parts and was a $30. antique shop pick up. It's just a shadow box item.

    This is a very special mouse gun for me. It is a Rossi Garrucha in .32 Rossi. It was purchased by a Brazilian family around 1900. It was later given to their son who became a doctor. He used it to kill a mugger who was trying to rob him in the 1940s.

    My best friend was in the U.S. Navy from 1932 until he retired in 1956 as a Hospital Corpsman Warrant Officer - Physicians Assistant. He island hopped with the Marines in WWII and served in Korea. When he was stationed in Brazil in the early 1950s, he became good friends with the Brazilian doctor who gave him the Rossi Garrucha. He gave it to me just before he died at ninety-six in 2010.

    Gee-wiz guys, I just realized that a Commander is the smallest pistol I own. I do own several .22 pistols, but they're full size.

    Hereís a little mouse gun thatís probably has some pop to it .
    I acquired it as a hopeful collector gun one day, because it was hard to get at the time , some years ago. I donít know now, havenít looked in a long while. It was expensive .. very expensive as compared to the now flooded market of tiny .32 and .380 pocket pistols

    Itís a little Seecamp .380

    Nice WWYS...!!


    History:

    L. W. Seecamp Co. was a manufacturer of handmade pocket pistols located in Milford, Connecticut from 1981 to 2014. In 2014, the company announced that Whalley Precision would take over production of the pistols.[1]

    [1] ^ http://seecamp.com/Announcement.pdf

    L. W. Seecamp Co. was started as a pistol smithing company in 1973 specializing in double-action conversions for the 1911 Colt .45. At the time, there were no commercially available double-action 1911 pistols anywhere in the world.[3]

    [3] ^ Ayoob, Massad (15 March 2010). Massad Ayoob's Greatest Handguns of the World. Iola, Wisconsin: Gun Digest Books. p. 25.

    In 1978, Seecamp specialized in the miniaturization of pistols. The Seecamp patented spring system is currently used in almost every locked breech miniaturized semi-auto pistol.[4]

    [4] ^ James, Frank (15 December 2004). Effective Handgun Defense: A Comprehensive Guide to Concealed Carry. Iola, Wisconsin: Krause Publications. pp. 184, 193.

    In 1981 Seecamp ventured into firearms manufacturing, beginning with the LWS-25.[5]

    Seecamp's second model, the LWS-32 was designed around the only hollow point .32 ACP ammunition available at the time, Winchester Silvertips. Ammunition with an overall length exceeding 0.910" (23.1mm) may not feed or chamber correctly.

    Operation is through chamber-ring delayed blowback where a raised ring at the rear of the chamber retards the rearward motion of the slide. This model uses a magazine with a capacity of 6 rounds. The LWS-32 remains Seecamp's most popular firearm.

    During the height of demand, production guns were selling out years in advance with individual guns selling for up to $1000.[5]

    In 1999 Seecamp introduced a third model, the LWS-380 chambered in .380 ACP. The LWS-380 is the same size as the LWS-32.[5]
