    I like to look at any and all interesting firearm designs.
    I could see it possibly for a person that could not otherwise grip a more conventional firearm.

    The single shot factor would make it a no-go for me.

    Personally I think most people would be better served by a NAA revolver in .22 Mag for a "close in" last ditch firearm.

    I think a good knife would be more effective.

    Too weird for me....doesn't look like a gun...so God forbid a kid find it, or the wife picks it up, or whatever...potential for big accident. Also I don't think I would trust the thing with my life. Educational though...never knew they existed.

    Not Here

    In Minnesota a gun MUST look like a gun. Bet many other states have the same laws.
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    i don't think i would trust it with my life. as a novelty, maybe if it were a little cheaper.

    i don't think i would go to a range and pull one of those out though.

    At first glance, I thought you said Palin Pistol!

    That's a pretty big chunk of change to spend on a novelty just for the collection, at least from where my finances stand. I'd be more tempted to go with an NAA mini or Guardian, or even a good derringer. They might cost a little more than $300 but they still offer a bit of "cool factor" as a conversation piece and can actually be carried as a last ditch option if absolutely necessary.

    ...a "novelty" is right. NO WAY.
    NAA revolver in .22 mag. is it. If you can grip that palm piece, you can grip and shoot the NAA.

    If you're going to do palm, take a look at this: Chicago Palm Pistol in Rare Blued Finish

    I think it was loosely based on the .22 of similar design, but it's in .32.

    As for the "contact safety" if you look at the pictures really close you see three buttons -- one over the barrel, one under the barrel and one on the back of the handle. I'm guessing those three buttons must be depressed before the thing will fire.

    Still... a single shot 9mm... No thanks.
    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.

    I think I may have to submit a photo of that thing as an LEO safety warning. I thought pink or purple pistols were dangerous until I saw that thing.

    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I'm betting it never makes it to production or if it does that it flops real early. It's a bit too odd for modern times. Also at a price of $3 C Notes - there might be some rare few collectors who will pick one up as an oddball historic throw back but, I don't think many criminal types would pick up one or that too many would find their way to street carry.

    There is just so much better out there. Outdated and possibly dangerous. Imagine if someone unfamiliar with the concept found one. At least a pistol looks like a gun.

    +1 especially on the Criminal front. Most burglars don't want to shoot their victim, they just want their money. They want a gun that looks like a gun in order to intimidate victims into compliance. I would think your average mugger would prefer an airsoft gun to one of these.

    You are right on the stamp.

    How many AOWs can be carried discreetly and operated with an individual sitting on one(self)...? I can certainly see jamming this into the femoral, brachial, or popliteal juncture, with a 115 or 124 gr +P HP, to get someone off me, allowing me to access something more socially decisive.
