    Cobray .45 Colt/.410 single shot derringer, if you have one you'd sell reasonably (I have to pay FFL and shipping too, it adds up) I'd like to buy it. The kit welcome as well. FTF Houston, TX area would be real good.

    I always liked the classic and simple RWS 24. Are they still made? I don't see any new ones at the big dealers. I'd like one in .22, used ones OK if good. Any leads? Thanks!
