Walked into my LGS this afternoon. Said hi to all the guys. They looked at me a smiled. Then, one said to another, "Show him."

A single shot .22lr the size of a smart phone.

Like a frigging Transformer! Don't know what it would be good for other than wearing skinny jeans, and tight V-Neck shirt, and going to a Rave Party with your "phone" in your back pocket. But, it takes a little bit of tactile effort to transform it. So, it ain't no quick lifesaving device. There is no extractor either. Not sure how one would remove the spent case.

I told them it might sell as a novelty for under $200, but at their $400 asking price..........piss on THAT!!

    Looks about twice the size of a NAA Mini Revolver, which requires no assembly or unfolding to deploy. And you get 5 shots. And it's about half the price.

    It is cute and all but not $400 cute.

    Looks like something one would attach their car keys to. I don't have the kind of money needed to purchase one of these.

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    If you're gonna try to gouge me for a single shot .22, you're gonna have to try WAY harder than that:

    Here is the thing... you should buy it. Then stash it in the safe for 30 years. The company will only sell a few hundred and go out of business.

    In 25-30years, that thing will be a collectible oddity and be selling for $1500 on gunbroker. Look at the Philips and Rodgers Medusa revolver- an oddity from 1995 that is now worth insane amounts of cash

    Invest $400 wisely and you'll realize more than $1500 in 30 years. I won't live that long and I think it's a dumb design for a gun, even as a back-up for a back-up. I doubt they'll make a few hundred since it has no practical value.

    That, one can justify. Given the adequate funding.

    Wrong, except the last sentence. I'm known for my rapier wit and broad-mindedness. I launch zingers all the time but few lock onto them as they think I'm as you described above.
