    An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.

    100 years ago something like this..

    Genitron.com - Turbiaux Palm-Squeezer Pistol

    and that has 10 shots!

    althou i can see the use of some kind of palm pistol as single shot last dicth close range defense with old geriatric hands (or similar handicap).

    price should be really low to be good deal. 50-100$ in my mind.

    -380acp.. is that german ww2 haenel suhl 6.5mm or something? looks similar.

    It's a CZ Duo 6.35 mm (.25 ACP) six shot semi auto manufactured in 1942. My grandad captured it off of an Italian officer during the invasion of Sicily but I found they were usually bought and carried by Nazi officers so mine may have done some traveling between different hands.

    No thanks.
    The closest we came to this, many years ago, was a .22 mag derringer; my wife thought it was "cute"; she fired it a few times and each time we had to hunt in the grass to find it !!!
    Sold it a few days later.

    My "palm" pistol is a G-26

    Well, the interesting thing about it is that it's a medical device. From the website's specification .pdf:

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has completed its “Device/Not a Device” determination and ruled the pistol will be listed as a Class I Medical Device, exempt from 510(k) Pre-Market Notification, in accordance with and subject to 21 CFR 890.5050 “Daily Activity Assist Device.”
    This seems very strange to me. Can they be prescribed by doctors? Will a permit be required to carry (I would assume so...)? Would the TSA have to allow them on planes because they're a "medical device"? I would assume they won't allow them, but don't know such things.

    Overall, it's a very strange product and I don't think it'll catch on.

    Everyone who is posting here saying "no thanks" is not a problem for the palm pistol . . . you are not their intended demographic.

    Imagine you are an elderly invalid living in the bad part of town, and would like something to keep by the bedside. You suffer from severe arthritis and are unable to wield or pull the trigger on a standard pistol.

    Seems to me that a push button light weight tool might be a perfect solution for some . . .

    If I was older and in ill health, this Palm Pistol is better than my cane!!

    I also would like to point out that it is 9mm and not something along the lines of a .22. Cheers to the engineers for that!

    Thumbs down

    Junk! Way overpriced. If there's really a need for special weapon for disabled hands(probably is really) it should be something like a revolver with either a "Chicago Squeezer" sort of action or a thumb action. Loading could be by pulling out the pin, load the cylinder and reinstall.
    Should mention that a Chicago Squeezer was was an oddity with an oblong, box-like shape that had a barrel sticking out of the top front. Firing was by squeezing the front which was like one long trigger. Looks different than the old palm pistol designs but similar action to fire.
    Something could be made as a defense design for those with bad arthritis but the current offering surely isn't it.
    These people are just trying to make money off of crippled people who need real help...not somebody trying to chisel them.
