Palm Pistol

David via. SayUncle reported on a company called Constitution Arms who plan on producing palm pistols.

The Palm Pistol is an ergonomically innovative single shot double action only defensive firearm chambered in 9mm that may be fired using either hand without regard to orientation of the stock. Suited for home defense, concealed carry or as a backup gun. It is also ideal for seniors, disabled or others who may have limited strength or manual dexterity. Using the thumb instead of the index finger for firing, it significantly reduces muzzle drift, one of the principle causes of inaccurate targeting. Point and shoot couldn’t be easier.


I do wonder how useful a single shot 9mm is but they are pretty up front about the disadvantages of their product in the product specification PDF. It will be interesting to see if this goes into production.

This type of palm held squeeze to fire pistols have been around for quite some time. James has a write up about them here.

    Neat gadget, but the first thing our goddamned legislators will probably do is make it illegal to buy, possess, own, transfer or otherwise convey to any person.

  • Why RCG, you sound bitter!

    It comes from living in Connecticut.

    cool, but a .45 or maybe .44 special would be better. whats the deal with the first poster there?

  • Sir Loin

    I think I’ll get one for my Mother-In-Law.
    I hope they are willing to trade.

  • By current standards, isn’t that going to be an AOW subject to BATFE registration?

  • Oops! Spoke too soon. ATF says no, it’s just a pistol.

  • William D. Anderson
