Recommended: Beretta 21A Bobcat 22lr
We initially left out the Bobcat, a major oversight on our part. Thanks to our reader Larry Barr for bringing this omission to our attention.
If ever there was pistol that fits the “pocket” category in every way, the Bobcat is it. With an overall 4.92″ of total length and a weight of just 11.5 ounces unloaded, the Bobcat is right there with any pocket rocket out there. Whether you choose the 22r or .25-Auto, the Bobcat has a magazine capacity of 7, plus 1 in the chamber.
This 22r is unique in that it features a “tip up” barrel, which among other benefits makes the Bobcat more user friendly to shooters that have strength or disability issues with racking a slide. The quirky action created by the tip-up barrel is something you’ll like or you won’t. For those who do enjoy it, this is an excellent pocket weapon.
