Regular 5″ Coonan autopistol may be concussive and flashy, but it’s a bit large for a small-framed person to wear daily. This compact 4″ version is even louder,¬†brighter in the muzzle flash — and delivers a nice .357Mag punch.

Why get a Coonan?

The most common comment made by people who tried it the first time has been: “It’s like shooting a laser!” I found it easy to make 50 yard hits on steel plates. I don’t work for them, I am just … Continue reading
