Constitution Arms, a small arms manufacturer based in Maplewood, N.J., is taking deposits for what it touts as the world's first ergonomically designed firearm.

Intended for use by the elderly and disabled, the single-shot 9-mm weapon looks like a giant bean grasped in the palm of the hand.

Even better, Constitution Arms says it's had it certified by the FDA as a "Class I Medical Device." That means doctors could prescribe the handgun to qualified patients, who would then have some or all of the cost reimbursed by Medicare or private insurance.

I guess it is just me, but that sounds and looks like the most ridiculous thing i have ever seen:rolf, there is no way that that thing can be aimed with any accuracy, and god knows what the kickback will be like.:laughing

That is one of those things where I sit and argue to myself.

It's one shot. Bad
That's more than some of the old and/or infirm could handle otherwise. Good
It would have no accuracy. Bad
If the bad guy is within arms reach, it wont matter. Good
It seems like we're getting more and more multiple invaders. Bad
When the one you didn't shoot hears the bang, they're not going to hang around. Good
For $300 you can get a better piece. Bad
But can somebody with bad muscle disorder shoot a better piece? Good

And so on ad nauseum.

I guess I'm at, it may be good for some people but not for me.

End of argument. Completely unsuitable as a defensive weapon. :thumbsdwn

Might as well carry a flintlock musket pistol. :rolleyes:

I'd be worried that my grand mother would get that thing confused with her inhaler and blow her brains out!
:rolf

That is actually a valid concern.
