Increasingly, Brazilians are once again embracing the proven benefits of firearm ownership in that crime-ridden nation. Especially under their new president. And Philipe carries the Imbel MD2-LX. Which sounds like a jumble of letters, so I Googled it.
It’s a 19+1 .380 caliber pistol. It comes with three of those 19-round magazines and a target from the factory showing that yes, it shoots minute of bad guy without issues. (For more on the gun, in Portuguese, see this YouTube video.)
Why do I have a strange urge to try to acquire one of these Imbel .380 pistols?
Surprisingly, Philipe doesn’t carry a reload, but with 19+1, that’s four J-frame revolvers’ worth of firepower without a replenishment.
