    "One is a .22 derringer, sort of like what they used in the cowboy movies, easy to conceal, can fire two bullets" Wouldn't two bullets be insufficient in a dangerous situation?Though the small size could give an advantage..I know a bit about the Japanese in WW2,my mother's great-uncle was a POW in Changi, Singapore..I read that when the Americans attempted to evacuate the Japanese wounded the Japanese would try to shoot them- "Ever approach a traffic light and watch traffic in other direction to see if the fellow was going to jump the yellow light..??.." Oh yes.And when the light changes to green a bloody great SUV turns left in front of your car,knowing you've got to stop because it's so big..even better,leaving a parking lot,looking left,seeing a car with the right indicator blinking,you turn out thinking he's turning in and he smashes into you,because he has his indicator on by mistake..ah yes, I remember it well...
