    I've seen them mentioned on other Forums but never in person. It just seems to me it'd run afoul of the BATFE's "other weapons" category. I don't recall the exact language but something to the effect of weapons disguised as other objects being strictly verbotten (i.e. zippo and fountain pen guns). Since it's built into a knife it may be perfectly legal but I wouldn't be willing to risk Federal charges by owning one. Seems an NAA mini would be a better option and likely better quality as well. Just my humble opinion, hopefully others here can offer insight into the subtleties of the BATFE regs.

    I'm with Jack, I'd question the legality of that, ah, device.

    Not for me.

    I found this info..don't know how accurate it is:

    Here's the YouTube video:

    I think a Kel-Tec P3AT would be easier to carry than that knife!

    I've seen something very similar (maybe the same gun) at a few places...it's an NFA AOW meaning that you have to pay a $5 transfer tax and be entered into the NFA regestry. I think it would be a "fun" little gadget of very little use if you ask me.

    Neat toy. Can't think of a good use for it without stretching reality a bit. I thought maybe survival knife, but being a partial tang knife, I doub't it's tough enough for that. I think I'd rather have a .22 cal bracelet that shoots like spiderman shoots webs.

    Are you supposed to stab then shoot? or, shoot then stab? Seems to me like the knife blade would be a more reliable weapon than the gun.

    I've also seen the gun pens, and they all seem like more of a noveltey than a serious means of self defence. I'm sure I'd feel more safe with my kel-tec.

    maybe stabot ?(shoot while stabbing?) Not sure but seems like it would be considered illegal , as it is a disguised gun. Also not at all practical.

    Well my best guess is its for those confused folks who dont know if they should cut across the street , or shoot down the alley LOL .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
