India Produces First Handgun Marketed To Woman

    Indian Ordnance Factories, a government owned arms manufacturer, is marketing a new revolver called The Nirbheek and named after a rape victim. The revolver is based on the Webley design (along with all IOF’s revolvers) and is chambered in .32 S&W. The frame is made from titanium and it weighs 500 grams.

    The price: about $2000! That is about twice the average per capita income of India.

    Thanks to Mark and WhaeOil for the tip.
