OK, I know jack about guns other than how to shoot them (and very welll, I might add)

My character is a reporter on field in Sin City (thats not the name of the town, but you get the idea). Her family is from there, and her father was a bounty hunter. The only thing she has left of him (and her whole family) is a gun. It has to be a special, easy to carry, light wieght and very accurate. No gimmicky bullshit, this was a hand made automatic pistol. So, help me out. I dont even know what to call it.

Thanks.

a .25 Baretta is a gun that's very easy to hide, carry, aim, silence, etc. On the flip side it is also known for jamming on ocasion. (Most of this information comes from Dr. No)

when you say handmade do you mean custom, as in a one off? not sure if i know anything about custom guns.. :happysad:

but if production i would go with a polymer body 9mm, such as.. http://www.kahr.com/review_ch_0900.html
small, potent and hostile.. not gimmicky, believable, not cliched (see glock etc).. and i chose the 9 over the 40 as i get better clusters with the 9, you may prefer otherwise..

rueger(sp?) makes a fully automatic 9 already... its small, and lightweight. fits in most regular sized gun holsters...

problem is, that doesn't really look very sentimental. how about something along the lines of a custom walther PPK? like hilter had, it had pure pearl grip, engraved barrell etc.

example:

ruger 9mm.. got one.. makes good holes.. i didn't go that route for the same reason as i didn't say glock.. too well known for the story maybe..
