Standard Mfg. shatters pocket pistol preconceptions with its six-barrel S-333 Volleyfire break-action .25 ACP. Two barrels fire with each pull of the gun’s trigger, which may finally put to rest arguments that the diminutive center-fire cartridge isn’t up to the task of personal defense. The gun has only a button to eject shells from the barrels and a release to break the action open, the latter pulling double duty as the rear sight. There are no external safeties and no magazine release or hammer. The six barrels remain stationary, and the firing pins sequentially reposition themselves with each pull of the trigger. Color options include: black, ranger green, pink and Gold Finger. stdgun.com
