First, thanks for the ad to this forum.  It is great to see dedication to firearms that some may consider somewhat obscure.  

I am old enough to recall the DAO Backups first coming out, and I was very intrigued by especially by the .45 version.  However, to date, I've never even seen one in person.  Seeing some on auction sites, I've decided lately that I might treat myself to one for nostalgia's sake.  I am particularly interested in the 9mm version, thinking probably it might be less abrasive to shoot than the .45.  

Although I have seen the dimensions of the large frame Backups, it has been very difficult finding pics of the guns alongside other pistols for size comparisons.  Can anyone here post some comparison pics of the large frames alongside other guns, particularly other pocket guns?  I would really appreciate it!

Thanks in advance!

Backups says it all in the name. They are cool but they are not a target practice gun or high use. Made sleek and smooth for pulling out of your pocket fast and using up close. Even the 380 will put a hurting on you hand if you shoot it much. The 45 version can pretty much always be found, sometimes even still unfired ones come up for sale. The 9mm you will have to be a little more vigilant in finding one when it comes up. I have a pretty good collection of AMT's. Only one of them was bought in person, the rest have been found on the web and shipped in.
