The Miller Lite Of Pocket Pistols?

Less Print! More Comfort!

Taurus markets curved pocket .380 that hardly looks like a pistol. Market campaign could be “Get Bent!”

Generally people aren’t flat and square, but their pistols are. Try and stick a regular pocket pistol in your pocket, and odds are that it will really stretch the fabric, especially at the corners. This is called “printing”, and everybody and their one eyed old hound dog can see that L shaped lump you’ve “concealed” and know just what it is.

Worse, you carry a little gun in your pocket, and it lets you know it’s there all the time. One corner or another will always be digging in, riding up, wearing a hole in the fabric, maybe worse. All those little levers and buttons rubbing you raw and collecting lint.

So Taurus built themselves a curved pistol. And named it ... The Curve. How original!! It’s a distinctly right handed affair that’s curved top to bottom and (I think) front to back. And then they added a blob to the front that houses both an LED flashlight and a laser aiming site. But the blob makes the shape look more like a wallet than a typical firearm. So what you get is more comfort. And less obvious printing.

The curved concept only goes so far. The barrel, frame, rails, and other internals are all properly straight and lined up. It’s only the external body of the gun that has the bends.

Notice that there are no sites to snag on things, just a couple of white lines. Good enough at 10 feet in a panic situation. Plus there’s that laser site, which is adjustable, for making accurate longer shots. And it even comes with a removable waistband clip, which helps keep your pocket pistol from sliding down and becoming your socks pistol.

The Curve. MSRP under $400. 10.2 ounces, 6 rounds, handles +P ammo, 4.1lb trigger pull. Locked breech semi-automatic .380 ACP. Comes with 2 magazines, cable lock with trigger shield, slide lock with key for “home safety”, and a hard case. Made in the USA.

Neat.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
