BUG Match with a 98-Year-Old 6.35mm Le Français

Cool Forgotten Weapons merch!

Today I’m at the BackUp Gun Match in Tucson with a first model Le Français made in 1923. This is an early French semiauto pistol design intended for pocket carry. It has a 7-round magazine and a tip-up barrel, so that one need not ever manually rack the slide. It’s very compact, very light, and surprisingly accurate…although the 6.35mm (.25 ACP) caliber does leave a lot to be desired.
