Palm Pistol

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.

Army wants a new gun


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.

The gun safe enough to use as a toy

There seem to be layers of meaning in this ad. On one level, it's just a girl playing with her toys (and her gun). On another level, the doll clearly seems posed in a way to represent a dead person, shot perhaps by the girl who's looking down at the gun in her hand with regret. What's the message here?

Incidentally, wikipedia tells us that Iver Johnson revolvers were used in the assassinations of William McKinley and Robert Kennedy (and the attempted assassination of FDR).

Gun Silencer Bacon Cooker

I've heard about using a car engine to cook breakfast (in fact, that idea is immortalized in Rick Altergott's great artwork for WU -- see the side column), but this is the first time I've seen a gun used for the same purpose.
