Harkening back to the days of true Gentleman, boutique can manufacturer Boris Palatnik offers a CO2 powered ball bearning cane gun for sale. The cane gun holds 12 steel balls that fires semi-automatically at up to 600 FPS. Boris claims the ball is sufficient for self-defense and that the ball will penetrate drywall .25″ at 30′ from the shooter.

Various canes tops are available.

Canes are individually manufactured based on the height and decorative desires of the owner. Those interested in pricing one should contact B oris Palatnik directly.

    I met an old man in the mid 90's who had a cane gun in gunmetal gray. Asking him what caliber it was in kinda caught him off guard. I explained that I liked them and recognized his cane for what it was.
    He smiled and went on to tell me it was a .410/45LC single shot that could be reloaded rather quickly. He carried a mix of both .410 buckshot and .45LC rounds with him. I don't remember if any were hollow points or not.
    Sweet dual purpose walking cane. There was a sort of rubber muzzle cover if memory serves correctly. I've not seen one since though I continue to check out the cane a person uses if nearby.
    I still want one and this is a viable option.

      @Cattoo Some of them used to require a 5 dollar transfer tax as a curio, but the relic regs have been modified since I last payed attention. I would think it may still require registration if firearms ammo is used in it. If black power, probably not. I got to admit, using the cane you saw would be very effective as a defensive weapon! I would think one could make their own, and bypass the paperwork and do it legal that way. It would only take a look to make sure local laws didn't have a prohibition against them.

    It sounds like a toy not a self defense weapon. Its .22 cal air gun. They usually run around 800fps in .22 cal air guns. Some more some less. So 600fps doesn't sound very powerful.
