The "defensive" (laugh) Palm .38 SPL pistol, designed especially for people with reduced muscle capacity, osteoporosis or rheumatoid arthritis, as well as for those suffering from degenerative diseases, arrives on the American market.
Disabled and elderly people will have the opportunity to kill someone exactly like the others: a great conquest of civilization, don't they?
The project is long-standing: for years the company had been trying to patent this device: the delay in approving the sale would be due (this is nice) to the attempt to have it registered as a "medical device", in order to guarantee its sale with costs more accessible for applicants. From the press releases of the manufacturer:
it is a very innovative single-shot pistol, which can be held with any hand and in any direction. It is built for the elderly, disabled or others with muscle limitations, or amputations. You can shoot with the palm of your hand or a combination of other fingers. We expect an initial production of 500 units, reserved for American citizens only. The base price is $ 1350 plus 10% tax.
Here the product site, in case you have a grandfather or a disabled friend who wants to do himself justice. Meanwhile, as a good Neapolitan I'm going to play the lotto numbers:
70 - the gun. 53 - the old. 20 - amazement (and stupidity).
