    My wife is on the couch next to me. Thanks for that, now she found something to spend money on!

    Looks like a cool little CCW gun. Wonder what they'll run. Bet they'd sell tons at $300.

    It's a blow back single action so... it's a Highpoint with a grip safety? I'm kidding, but at $350 it's going to have a rough time beating out the competition in that range you have the Shield, CW9, LC9 etc

    That's the first .380 I've ever been even remotely interested in. It's gonna be sweet.

    Oh and not to get off topic in my own thread, but I won't be getting either gun because I'm sure they won't be on California's DOJ list of approved hand guns.....whine wahh wahhh. OK I'm over it.

    Ya im hoping for a 9mm version. The .380 will be cool though. Ive always thought Glock should make a single stack pocket 9 or .380. Im excited for it.

    That Remington would be interesting to work out side by side with a Ruger LCP and LC9.
    I much prefer 9mm to 380 for defensive carry, and the newer 9mm pocket pistols are now reaching the 380 size range that is so great for carry.

    Not a legit PPK by any measure, but I had a knockoff Bersa Thunder for a couple years.....it's a long story.
    Anyway that had to be the biggest POS piss poor excuse of a handgun I ever had the displeasure of owning. I was thrilled when the original owner was able to put it back in her name and take it off my hands!

    But the PPK is no doubt a classic. I kind of like the R51 because it's based on a design from 1918, and some classic designs are just plain cool. I agree it's going to have a hard time competing with some of the compact 9mm's that have already been out there and have been proven to work. Just another option I guess.
