World’s Smallest Gun

Well, the Swiss have done it and it's been verified by Guinness World Records. The world's smallest gun measures no more then 5.5 cm long and fires 2.34 mm caliber ammunition. It's a double action revolver that functions just like it's bigger siblings. Unfortunately for you American gun collectors out there the SwissMiniGun is not available in the U.S. and cannot be imported, but it's fun to look at. For those of you who may be able to purchase one, they are available in either steel or gold and can apparently be tricked out with diamonds. SwissMiniGun

Just as well it's not available in the States. Us Americans like our guns big and obnoxious.

You're right, StarThrower, the thugs would have to use crossbows, swords, knives and clubs!

A bullet is a bullet. They are not available in the States, but how difficult would it be to get one of these past our customs?

anyone ever see one of the first silent twilight zone episodes where a housewife was invaded by little aliens? after she managed to squish them all with a broom, they panned up to her attic where they came from and the spaceship said USAF on it.

unrelated but this post made me think of it..great episode.(although I've ruined it for everyone now)

That is really weird (good place for weirdness). You must have picked up from my short comment that I was in the USAF for 11+ years. mrjazz might be mrphysic.
