Maybe I’m missing something, but it didn’t even look like she hit the target.

Edit: alright people I get it, derringer is only effective in very close proximity. No need to reply telling me that, about 50 other people already have. I was just referencing the fact that she mimicked blowing the smoke off the barrel like she was hot shit, when it didn’t look like she hit anything.

Honestly that is quite the range for a short barrel pistol with that much recoil. I’m not surprised she missed.

Literally every pistol is hard to aim compared to a rifle. With a rifle at even 200 yards if you miss you just suck.

My dad always called those necktie pistols. As you have to grab the guy by the necktie in order to be close enough. Fun to shoot but super inaccurate.

I mean assuming it’s for personal protection wouldn’t most instances for its use be a short ranges?

In old Westerns they only needed to be effective to about the width of a poker table. She was really stretching that range.
