    That’s a really cute gun that I can’t have.



  2. JD Fine Painting on November 9, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Awesome little pistol, wish I never got rid of mine!



  3. CEO- Empowerment Coach Maverick on November 9, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    What is the height, width, length, and weight of this gun? (Also, how much do they sell for, this original?) (Is there a # I can reach you on to ask questions about My First Vintage gun?)

    When I hear guys complain about the "sights" on a 25cal., I have to shake my head. 10′ or less is a more realistic range for a pocket gun such as your shooting. I enjoy squirrel hunting with a pistol. For that I use a Colt Woodsman target pistol with an 8" barrel. It’s deadly out to 75′. I sure wouldn’t use my .25cal. but I don’t use the Woodsman for conceal carry either.

    DIRTY GERTIE?



  6. Bama Q on November 9, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    Just realized this was 7 years old sorry



  7. entropi0666 on November 9, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    i just acquired one of those. from what I have found mine appears to be first gen. without safety.



  8. Eric K on November 9, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    I have one of these but I do not have a magazine for it. Does anyone know where I can find one?



  9. John Ventrillo on November 9, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    It’s a fucking "super, extra backup".



  10. preet poonia on November 9, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    price in india for owning



  11. Giorgi Sukhitashvili on November 9, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    so, tired of hearing people shit on smaller calibers with the same old big dick crowd mentality. This gun is meant for unloading on an enemy at a point blank range where one can’t miss the face or chest. I’d like to know of a world where anyone could retaliate from such a scenario. If you can’t hit a 5" group on a target from a point blank range in a stressful situation, you should not be carrying. That said, i own pistols in four different calibers.



  12. john brown on November 9, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    As a Bank Teller in the 60’s we had one of these under our desks, but I would never have attempted to use it in the event of a holdup, 2nd reason is that the ammo might have been too old to fire. Please don’t ask what the first reason was.



  13. Азар Явед on November 9, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    why his hands are shaking?



  14. andrea rios-orlando on November 9, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Looks like the Jennings 25 acp takes the same mags.



  15. Jouri - on November 9, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Would you please show us how to disassemble the magazine? Thanks



  16. Ralph M. Chavez on November 9, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    …gutter ‘snipe’ aiming sights.



  17. Bama Q on November 9, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Try flipping the safety all the way backwards. That’s how mine works



  18. Glen M on November 9, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    Powerwise 22 long rifle hyper. & .25 acp out of a short barrel are equal power wise..(plenty of test on YouTube including Paul Harrell) BUT .25 acp uses a full metal jacket bullet which has better penetration on hard barriers ie human skull.. therefore much better for self-defense than any short barrel.22 .. along with being much better reliability



  19. Rang123 Yea on November 9, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    I’m in South Florida sometime it’s too damn hot for much clothing which can make concealment difficult so on occasion just to have more than nothing I carry my FIE Titan .25 I prefer it to nothing, but not by much.



  20. elaustraliano on November 9, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    These little guns were not designed to shoot in a long-range battle. These are for close-quarter defence, against a mugger or a home-invader.



  21. FrothyKibbles67 the GameCat on November 9, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    500th like



  22. donjuan42566 on November 9, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    He,s just a weak dude just telling lies on the 25



  23. chrismc410 on November 9, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Make no mistake. .25 ACP can and will kill you as surely as a .45 will. Even with one shot and instantly if properly used.



  24. Tuukka Karkkainen on November 9, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    My grandfather had one of these but it had to be deactivated becouse we cant keep licenses guns like these in finland



  25. Alessander Ariadne Lara on November 9, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Anybody here have one detachable box maganine for this model?? FN 25 ACP browning 1906??? please contact me!



  26. Anastasia Dreiser-Ignatieff on November 9, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    I was gonna buy a WW2 Walther PP… but someone else won the auction. The only thing they have left is one of these Baby Brownings and I’m wondering if I should buy it. It’s not really ‘cool’ in the sense that a Luger is and it’s not as interesting as a C96 or one of those early designs but it does have it’s appeal to it as a sort of novelty item. I wonder what these things were used for back in the day.. I can someone bringing it into a poker game or a spy carrying it as a sort of last resort; anything other than that it’s not very practical.



  27. Mr.Avid Outdoorsman on November 9, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    25 has taken a many of rabid humans.



  28. Roy Smith on November 9, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    That’s an interesting tip about taking care when ejecting a live round.

    (The old collectors used to say of
    officer’s personal pistols, "The smaller the caliber, the higher the
    rank…")



  29. Lawrence Glover on November 9, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    this is what you were supposed to do with those vest pocket pistols, when someone tries to mug you, you pull the pistol out of your pocket, stick it in his rib cage, empty the clip then run lick hell.



  30. Dawn Mccarver on November 9, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    my sister has a 25 a.c.p.model hp25a and it fires 1 time then not again ,can you give me some advice plz



  31. Alex GottmitUns on November 9, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    The 1905 is pretty much the same size as Magnum Research’s Micro desert Eagle 380.



  32. David Kolb on November 9, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Comparing the FN1905 to the Kel-Tech is like comparing the Wright Flyer to the Space Shuttle!



  33. gary K on November 9, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    And you clearly demonstrate why the .25 ACP has faded. You can now get a .380 ACP roughly the same size and lighter weight than the old .25 ACP guns. Close range, face or neck shot…oh yeah, it works. Much better than the .45 Auto you left at home. Still, for the average guy buying a CC gun the .25’s just have nothing to offer anymore. For a gun collector and gun carrier like me, sure! If you are going to have a bunch of CC guns, why not?



  34. JP Stone on November 9, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Hickok 45 would have checked to see that the mag was locked in 16 times. I don’t know why, just his nervous twitch.



  35. Timo Holzberger on November 9, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    I do IT



  36. Brady Strain on November 9, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    terrible reveiw



  37. James Maxwell on November 9, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Have one and love it. My Uncle took it off a German Officer in WW II and brought it home.



  38. Elpidio Villarreal on November 9, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    A 25 round to the face or head will stop anyone, it’s not the best self defense weapon but it sure is better than wrestling a healthy mugger.



  39. Giovanni Degliorsi on November 9, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    cute but with 180-200 joule of energy can wipe out your finger if you do’nt pay much attention where you put them around this pistol,in a standard double hand standing firing position.
    I had this pisto when I was very young, or a couple of them, I remember how funny was to shoot at threes’ leaves and how easy was to strip down them and reassemble in a minute.



  40. gotlife Z on November 9, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    i mean when you got shot with a .22 cal or .25 cal.. it hurts and you can get killed.. dont mind get a shot in the head



  41. GageFixesEverything on November 9, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Great video thanks!



  42. snap ko on November 9, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    any chance to find a magazine for it in Europe?



  43. Joe Pistolas on November 9, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Many men have been put 6 feet under with a .25 acp. This caliber is nothing to laugh at.



  44. lancepierres on November 9, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Those little guns are awesome! Do you have some advices on how to clean it?



  45. Natasha Seider on November 9, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    Small calibre, but I sure wouldn’t want to get hit with it !!!



  46. Carlos Valenza on November 9, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    i have one,how much,IT COST I WANT TO SELL IT



  47. newhuskytwenty on November 9, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    That grey thing at the upper right corner is intended to absorb part of the sound?



  48. MyNigga_ Ronnie on November 9, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    32 is the smallest I’ll carry but I still enjoy 25
