Default What gun is that?

On page 91 of the new American Handgunner is an ad for a Clint Smith video. I guess that's Clint in the ad holding a semi-auto pistol that looks to be the slimmest gun on the planet. Is that gun that slim or is the picture stretched vertically causing it to look slimmer than it actually is? If its for real, what gun is it?

This one? The gun is a Baer Thunder Ranch Special (TRS). They have some of the "slimmest" slim grips made.

That's actually a .22, and the zoomed in really close to make it look like a huge hole in the muzzle. The gun is barely .35" wide!!!



Anytime you see a picture of Clint, you'll see a 1911 there with him.

IIRC, it is a presentation grade Thunder Ranch Special by Les Baer. He and his wife both got one.

Its the slim line grips (that he always favors) that makes it look really skiny.

It's Tokyo Marui's new .45 caliber Airsoft gun. It shoots a 10g plastic BB.
