Edit | Favorite Attention Preppers! The ultimate survival firearm!

​While some may scoff at the idea of carrying a Davis industries product, the true prepper never fails to investigate all possible uses of a tool. Let us now examine the many uses of this fine product.
1. Defensive weapon. With a weight of 22oz/9625 grains and a decent throwing speed of 60mph/88fps, “muzzle energy” delivered will be 165 ft. lbs.! This is only 23 ft. lbs. shy of the blazer FMJ, the case of which stove piped in the action after your first round fired! Talk about a potent defensive weapon!
2. Fishing weight. We all know that in a survival situation, food supply is key. Given its 22 oz. weight and rust resistant chrome plating, the Davis .380 is ideal for anchoring a trotline.
3. Hammer. Now that you have fended off the zombie hordes and feasted, shelter is in order. But how to drive ones tent stakes? Here again the Davis .380 is the answer!
4. Nutritional supplement. Let’s face it folks, zinc deficiency is a serious issue, and we can’t always have a ready supply of multivitamins handy. Of course this is not an issue for the prepper armed with the die cast zinc Davis .380 The following symptoms can all be fatal in a survival situation:
Compromised immune system: Zinc affects cell activities. Zinc deficiency can cause reduced or weakened antibodies and compromise the immune system. Thus the deficient person will be prone to infection or flu.

Diarrhea: A compromised immune system makes one susceptible to infection. One of these infections is a bacteria that causes diarrhea.

Hair loss and skin lesions: Zinc is important for normal cell growth. Zinc nutrition deficiency weakens the cells, which can result in hair loss in case of cells on the scalp and lesions on the skin. This is one of the prominent signs of zinc deficiency.

Loss of appetite and/or anorexia: A deficiency of zinc causes decreased loss of appetite. If zinc deficiency is not identified and treated, decreased loss of appetite can eventually lead to anorexia.

Impairment of cognitive and motor functions: Zinc deficiency in a pregnant mother can not only weaken the mother, but can also cause damage to the fetus’s neurological system, impairing the motor skills and cognitive skills of the infant.

So in closing, is your survival not worth a mere $175?
Will trade for:
Cash or other guns

I like that he calculated the grain weight of the entire pistol.
