    Nah. I'll take a Targus 941 Ultra-Lite

    [EDIT] Speaking of which, I was accosted by a pack of wild dogs just this morning at the end of my run. I gave them a "gitonouttahere" and chased THEM for once. That's fun.

    Didn't need one by design. The trigger folds up against the bottom of the frame. Note the large pivot screw in the trigger.

    A cyclist's revolver similar to this was used by Herschel Grynszpan to assassinate Ernst vom Rath in November 1938 and thereby triggering Kristallnacht that virtually destroyed Jewish cultural and religious life in Germany.

    Take a close look at that cylinder, it appears to be a 5-shot.

    Although I like the idea, without a concealed carry permit local law enforcement would be all over me like a cheap suit if I tried to use it for its intended purpose.

    With most dog behavioral problems, it's the owner not the dog who should be shot.

    It probably is, which means it is even smaller than I was thinking.

    Hey that would work for me. I ride a bent, and am low enough, so when chased by a dog I could slam on the brakes, and shove that ****** up his butt has he went by. It would be a hoot watching his eyes bugout when I pulled the trigger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I prefer this one, although it is not quite as easy to carry.

    I suspect that even in 1894 FAR FAR more bike riders were killed by 2 legged predators than by 4 legged predators.
    They probably didn't want to suggest that this ****** was for the more obvious purpose-shooting people.

    I doubt more than one adult bike rider per year - (USA)- is directly killed by a dogs(even by dogs you avoid by putting yourself in the path of a car).
    Probably more than 100 per year are INTENTIONALLY killed by fellow humans.

    I'm a BIG BELIEVER in self defense, but I know I'm not going to die from a dog attack.Human attack, or HUMAN CARELESSNESS, different story.

    I'm a dog/cat/animal fan(doesn't extend to reptiles, and I'm not a huge bird fan (those reptilian bird eyes seem to be sizing me up as a meal).
    I've been bitten-(dogs) maybe 100 times over the years.Most when I was young.We had Show Beagles ,and they would regularly get in fights which I would stupidly wade in and break up( should have hosed them or sprayed their eyes with detergent/water).

    Don't get killed in a wreck trying to avoid a minor bite. Look at the numbers- get some sort of easy to deploy weapon-bear spray whatever.

    The French ****** looks better made than some French machines( any French car from 50's-60's 70's;French light machine *** WW1-they tried to pawn off on our troops).The 380's are so small it doesn't make any sense to carry a 22 that large. Europeans used to "like" smaller calibers.

    Ignore dogs-shoot the owners!
