    How about this for a CCW

    Check this one out

    2 mm Kolibri Click Here

    no joke, its real. I guess this puts a whole new meaning to "pocket pistol"

    From what I read online, these are pretty pricey collectors items. The pistol alone will run you about $5,000 and another $70 per bullet.

    Bullet weight is 3grains and it travels at about 650fps. Muzzle energy is only 3 foot pounds. I never thought there would be a weaker round then a .22 or a .17

    Kinda ugly huh?

    Better be aiming for the eyeball - and hope their eye is open at the time.

    Of course, I regularly get grit in my eyes when working under my car, so I guess this may not be much different.

    I think a bb or pellet gun would be more effective personally. Might be nice to have for a conversation piece but that is about it.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    More effective just to throw the gun at the BG...it would do more damage!

    I was thinking that throwing a 9mm round at a BG would be more effective haha.

    At that price for the ammo, I hope they have reloading dies for it. And some reloading tweezers for handling the bullets, while we're at it.

    I struggle to think of any practical application for this round. Penetrating a half inch of pine board isn't all that impressive, and it seems like it would be somewhat analogous to a bee-sting if fired at a person. Doesn't sound too effective unless you're hunting garden snakes.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    Interesting and amazing little gun. I think it said the guy was a watchmaker......no doubt.

    The article also said "it wasn't widely accepted".......I wonder why.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    only $70 per round.
    I wonder how many rounds the magazine holds?

    Honestly that pistol would have come in awful handy for me that one day that I was viciously attacked by a hoard of "Hellbent for Blood" angry midgets at the circus.
    I never told you guys that true story?

    I have no idea what got them all so doggone POed at me.

    One of them came up and asked me if I could give him a dollar....& all I said was:
