Prescription Handguns?

Firing handguns can be difficult for folks with arthritis, as the recoil puts a good deal of stress on the wrist and hand joints, and squeezing the trigger can be impossible. Constitution Arms of Maplewood, New Jersey has created the pictured Palm Pistol, a double action 9mm single shot that supposedly is easier to control than traditional pistols by people with bad hands.

More. The device apparently is FDA approved and may soon be reimbursable under Medicare.

  1. This is a hoax. Something like this would be classified as a AOW by the BATF. A special license would be required to own it, and to sell it. And it would be illegal to carry under any circumstances. And there’s NO way the FDA would classify it as a medical device.
