Palm Pistol for the Elderly and Disabled
The website states "point and shoot couldn't be easier." Actually, it could. Sights and a conventional trigger would be a start. Then, if the person suffered from limited hand mobility, I shudder to think how their hand would feel after spending a day at the range with 9mm parabellum rounds igniting between their fingers.
Further, Constitution Arms asserts their pistol is certified by the FDA as a "Class I Medical Device." That would allow physicians to prescribe the handgun to qualified patients. The patient could then have some or all of the cost reimbursed by Medicare or private insurance.
Palm pistols are nothing new, indeed in Victorian times, they were fairly common. There are reasons these quirky firearms are now innovative fossils of an earlier time. These devices are difficult to shoot accurately, even across the room, and by necessity, they are chambered in diminutive calibers.
When one also takes into consideration that the Constitution Arms palm pistol is a single shot defensive weapon, I have to wonder whether the nursing home ninja might be better served with a Glock.
A physician's take on this.......... thing.
