Dreyse 1907 in .32 ACP

Putnam County Sheriff says ‘these hoodlums make me sick’ after homeowner shoots burlgar

PUTNAM COUNTY, Ga. — Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills says a homeowner on Thomas Dr. called 911 dispatch around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday about a man armed with a knife up a tree making a disturbance.

Deputies were dispatched to the home, but before they could arrive a second call came in from a next door neighbor alleging the suspect was attempting to break into their home.

The suspect, identified as 28-year-old Hunter Layne Harrison, had picked up a concrete landscaping border brick and threw it through the locked glass door which led to an enclosed porch, according to Sills.

After getting to the porch, Harrison beat on the french glass door to the home, screaming to be let in, but the homeowner shouted back that he was armed and that Harrison needed to leave.

Sills says Harrison picked up a dumbbell on the porch, threw it through the glass door, and made entrance to the home.

But the homeowner, armed with a .45 semi-automatic pistol, shot the suspect once in the arm. Harrison hit the kitchen floor and the owner held him their until deputies arrived.

Police investigate shooting, look for second suspect involved

by: Kaitlyn Olvera
LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Metro is looking for an outstanding second that was involved in an early morning shooting on Tuesday.

It happened just after 3 a.m. in a neighborhood near Sahara Avenue and Arville Street. Police say a man was home alone when he heard voices at his back door.

The homeowner, Metro says, got a firearm and confronted two people in his back yard.

One of the suspects, a man, allegedly came toward the homeowner in a threatening manner. The homeowner responded by firing one shot that struck the suspect in the shoulder.

Police say the homeowner immediately called 911, and the other suspect ran out of the back yard.

Caliber or shot placement, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes? One will trump *cough* the other, every time. The 0 / 2 / 1  weak hand today is made up for the majestic ugliness of Herr Schmeisser’s 1907 Dreyse Pistol.

Back to Fugly Gun Friday (and Saturday and Sunday and Monday……)?
That’s all right. There’s such a variety of everything in the world, and we all have our favorites (1911) but we can stand some variety.


It’s cute in a “face only a mother could love” kinda way. Who am I kidding? That gun is fuggin’ ugly.

Sounds like the homeowner would have saved the city/county/state a lot of time, work, and money by applying the Taxpayer Savings Shot. Twenty pages of rap sheet? Not Mr Harrison’s first rodeo.
And fell 9 feet from the house to the ground? THAT had to have left a mark (or two or three). Was it wrong of me to gigglesnort at that?


Not gonna lie, “outstanding second” I giggled a little.

Yeah, not sure what is more pathetic, the piss poor writing abilities of these “reporters” or the lack of range time with these homeowners. We shoulda had a solid trifecta of DRTs FIRST thing this morning, but noooooooo. Surprised the .45 didn’t take that punk ass white boy’s arm off. FWIW dprt it’s a good 100 mile round trip from Putnam County to that hospital in Maconga. My adopted nephew is an EMT up there and runs all over that area. He may even have been doing transport for that case. I check. Anyhow, in addition to the homeowners damage to their house, the cost to Putnam in deputies, the ambulance ride, the hospital bill, you looking at north of 100K USD that all of this is gonna cost. Oh, and the “outstanding second?” That one will show back up…eventually if not sooner.

Ok, now for the subject of that gawd awful fugly little baby kraut. Yeah…it is! You would have thought that, at the very least, a company that was in the business of building field artillery pieces would make it in a hand cannon type caliber. I guess making it a small caliber they could put that fugly little phuquer in a concealed carry holster so as not to embarrass the carrier. And as I have pointed out SO MANY times, again, “strongly influenced by the 1900 Browning” “used the 7.65/.32 ACP caliber Browning cartridge.” The Saintly JMB (Howitzer be his name) had been influencing copy cats well before his Masterpiece of the Revered Model 1911.

That was a nice write up of the little fugly phuquer. I “Like” that kind of detail. Tanks!


Using a common cartridge and having a similarly shaped extractor is really straining it…. this gun has next to nothing in common with most any Browning design. As well say a Pinto has Ferrari-type wheel arrangement.

Tanks ‘Ed, that was the point I was trying to make. After reading the linky you gave, I slid over into the one above, cause I was thinking that this fugly little phuquer was looking a whole lot like the M1900. My main point was folks started copying JMB (Hbhn) from the very beginning and haven’t quit. They even refer to it in their propaganda. Imitation IS the sincerest form of flattery. A certain aircraft attempted a copy cat, but the assembly process went screwy. Oh well. (ducks out of the ready room, goes looking for some mid watch rats)

One of my deceased neighbors daughter gave me a Colt .25 pocket pistol that he took off of a perp when he was a Yonkers NY detective and saved it all these years. I took it down to parade rest except for one part that couldn’t be taken out of the frame. My old NRA book is up in the 2nd story storeroom which has the name of the part. Simple green does a great job cleaning these parts and a hair dryer works great flushing out the rinse water and drying out the part. This Colt went for five bucks in the 1908 Sears catalogue. Took it to the range and fired it and put it back in the safe. Only came with one mag and I think I tried getting another one but without any luck.


I was thinking the same thing about the .45. Should have taken the little fuques arm off at the shoulder…
Range time people, RANGE TIME !!!!!
