    Have you heard of this gun?

    I was at the range today with a buddy who is in the market for the ever popular pocket pistol. He looked at the Kahr's...the Rugers..the J Frames.. all the usual suspects. I could see something was bugging him so I asked him what was up. He said he had seen something on line about a pocket pistol gun, about the size of a .380 that had a button at the bottom of the grip. He said when you hit the button a grip extender that was hidden in the bottom of the magazine fell down so that you could get your pinky on the grip. I thought he was crazy and laughed it off and went home..

    Now I am thinking that would be pretty handy. You would have the conceal-ability (because of the conventional small grips on pocket pistols) and a full 3 finger grip when you needed it for action.

    Plausible? Fiction?

    If that was an option it would severely limit magazine capacity as that is where such a device would reside when in the closed position. I'd rather have a lightsaber.

    All I can think of is the Beretta PX4 subcompact with the pull down pinky tab.

    That may be what he's thinking about, although I don't know where he got the idea of a button to extend it.

    This is what I was thinking as well. No button, just "clicks" down. I guess I would think of it as a LARGE pocket pistol. Closer to the glock sub compact size.

    The Beretta 9000s pistol has magazines with a flip-down pinky extension. There is no button, they just flip down.

    An unnecessary gimmick, if you ask me.

    well, if he hits the mag release (button) it will drop right down and give him something to put his pinky on, but he'll be limited to shooting the round in the chamber.

    Makes me wonder if he misunderstood what a mag release button does. Never heard of a gun that does that.

    I think the Beretta was what he was talking about. I showed him a picture and he thought that was it.

    I dont know where he got the idea of a button either
