A jeweler in DeLand, Florida is, for the third year, holding their Fire & Ice sale. Buy $450 or more worth of jewelry and get a free 12 gauge shot gun worth $270, provided you pass the background check. They have already given away 20 shot guns and have ordered more. Pretty good deal!
Coming in December the Palm Pistol. Its a 38 caliber single shot handgun made like a T-shaped screwdriver. The pistol was specially designed for people with poor hand strength from arthritis or disabilities. Or really anyone who finds a conventional gun difficult to fire. The trigger is a simple thumb push with the recoil dissipated into the palm. Great for defense but with only one shot accuracy would seem to be crucial as there may not be time to reload.
Now this is my idea of a proper gun ad. BTW the US military is looking for it's next standard model.
Let's hope it is made in America still. I like the old Colt 1911 .45 ACP or the Glock .45 GAP over any 9mm.
