Derringer 9mm cobra

Im new to buying hand guns, I do not need a big packing gun, I just want a small gun that packs a punch. We have a lot of people stealing stuff. There are times I really dont feel like walking out at 2 in the morning to investigate with a 12 gauge. Can some tell me if its a decent gun. I have found a brand new one for a really good deal. TIA Trey.

Why bother with a 9mm deranger? Save some cash and get a police trade in Glock, you will appreciate that alot more than a 2 shot bargain pistol. Besides, woldnt you rather have more than just 2 shots of 9mm to stop someone?

I noticed that after I posted this. I wanted something small, because my wife doesn't like guns. Its kinda hard to hold a big flash light and point a 12 gauge.

Then look into a glock 26 or a 9mm XD subcompact ... they are tiny and hold enough rounds to be usable. Sounds like you need to educate your wife some. Hell even a .38 5 shot would be better for you.

Agreed with a revolver - Smith and Wesson 642 hammerless .38. simple, easy to handle and good ergonomics.
