The Ladies Home Companion was a pistol (technically) made by the Cobray company on the same frame as their 12ga “Street Sweeper” shotgun. It had no stock or front grip, and was chambered for the .45-70 rifle cartridge, carrying 12 rounds in its fixed drum magazine. It’s kinda like watching a train wreck…you know you shouldn’t, but you kinda want one anyway. These sold even worse than the Streetsweeper, but they at least didn’t have an egregiously offensive name and thus were never the target of a major lobbying campaign.
The “Ladies Home Companion” is arguably the worst handgun ever conceptualized and executed.
