Palm Pistol.
 Article from  www.shootingwire.com  Visit their site and subscribe to the Shooting Wire News Letter and more on this story.

I'd never heard of it until yesterday, but it seems a New Jersey company (Constitution Arms) is in the final stages of launching a single-shot pistol that doesn't look much like other guns.

It's the Palm Pistol, a single-shot, 9mm defensive weapon that is fired by the thumb, not the traditional "trigger finger"

It's hard to describe, so I'm going to use a photo from the company's fact sheets.

The Palm Pistol has not left or right-hand designation, and is described as being suited for "home defense, concealed carry, or as a backup gun."

It has a tactical rail (designed for a LaserLyte Subcompact V2 laser sight), an integral 3-position combination lock, loaded chamber indicator, adjustable trigger pull and a PAIR of grip safeties and triggers According to the fact sheet, the Palm also minimizes the "lateral muzzle drift" induced during a normal trigger squeeze. Further, use of the thumb to fire is said to reduce the likelihood of an accidental discharge due to startling and "body alarm reaction induced during a high stress encounter with an armed opponent."

Personally, I like the idea of a firearm that gives people with serious physical challenges an option that can be safely carried and used if necessary. I also like the idea of the integral combination lock. It needn't be "scrambled" when being carried, but would only take a couple of turns on the combination to render it unusable.

I spoke briefly with the Palm's inventor, Matt Carmel, last night, and I promise you there are more than a few reasons why he created the firearm. In addition to being an entrepreneur, Carmel's a strong believer in the Second Amendment. More on him in upcoming features, I promise. In the meantime, you can learn more about the Palm at www.palmpistol.com

In addition to having met the ATF classifications of "firearm" the Palm has also another met the Food and Drug Administration standards for a Class I Medical Device. Intriguingly, that categorization could potentially qualify the Palm for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Durable Medical Equipment Coding. Should that happen, the Palm might be the first firearm that is reimbursable by Medicare or private health insurance companies for qualified patients.

I can hear the howls already. Like I said, this is an interesting story.

We'll keep you posted.
