Default 25 acp

My buddy picked his girl up a 25. Auto pistol and neither of us know what ammo to use in it. I was wondering if anyone has experience with this caliber and could suggest a s/d round.......Thanks for any help u can share.

Avoid FIOCCI. Unless they've made some corrections, had a bud that bought a .25 only cuz it was to cheap to pass up and it didn't like FIOCCI at all.

Did you not try to talk your buddy into getting her something rather than a .25? I'd even prefer a .22LR in a handgun over a .25 pea shooter. Maybe a .380 even if having to keep to small calibers. I know 3 people with .25's and not a one or myself very impressed.

.25 has to be one of the worst rounds ever made. I would much rather trust in a .22LR.

25 is the one round that, if I owned one, I would actually consider using fmj ammo. I would definitely avoid light for caliber bullets.

When pulling the trigger make sure the gun is stuck in your assailants mouth.

And pointed toward the roof of their mouth. If they're lucky, it'll penetrate the pallet and make it into the assailants brain.

I've often said, if you're stupid enough to take a knife to a gun fight, you better hope the gunman has a .25 ACP because that's the only way you'll win.
