A prescribed handgun solution…(literally)

A few weeks back I saw discussion of a new pistol called the Palm Pistol.  It looks more like some ergonomic screwdriver than a handgun.  But the concept design was to provide a usable close range self defense tool.

Unlike a normal pistol in which you hold a handle and the barrel lays about the handle reaching forward; the Palm Pistol held within the grip of the hand with the barrel sticking out between the middle of the four fingers and the thumb upon a button on the top.

The design is to accommodate people with weaker hands.  Okay, nothing I’ve said is really new. It’s been on other blogs before today.  But apparently the company has succeeded in getting the Palm Pistol listed as a Class I Medical Device.

Physicians will now be able to prescribe the Palm Pistol to qualified patients.
