Owl Head TPH

Bobbi has a pic of her fun show acquisition up for viewing.

There is no truth to the rumor that "TPH" stands for "Toilet Paper Handgun".

I owned a real TPH for awhile. We called it the Tiny Pocket Hideout. That might be the official name for all I know. We thought we cleverly made it up.

My wife still grumbles about me selling it (didn't know at the time she was fond of it).

Looked at replacing it a couple years ago and discovered the prices on Gunbroker were close to double what I originally paid.

Lot of things are more pricey that I remember from my youth.

Maybe that is what that inflation was all about.

There is no inflation. Report yourself to immediately, comrade, for re-education.

Off brand guns like this are fun, but replacing the fiddly bits can be a pain if the copiers didn't follow the original schematics closely.

Interesting find... :-)

Wow, never wanted a TP22, but sure did have the hankering for a TP25 ...and a Pony in .380. That and the stainless IJ "survival" M1 carbine with the IJ-branded Choate stock. They had quite the interesting catalog back in the early '80s.

That TP22 of Ms. X is quite the memory jogger. I hope she has fun with it!

Iver Johnson Pony in .380?
I have an early model FI Model D with a CPA serial number that predates that.

"Toilet Paper Handgun."
Kids! They'll make a pretend gun out of anything!
