    Easy-to-Use 'Palm Pistol' Aimed at Elderly, Disabled

    Constitution Arms, a small arms manufacturer based in Maplewood, N.J., is taking deposits for what it touts as the world's first ergonomically designed firearm.

    Intended for use by the elderly and disabled, the single-shot 9-mm weapon looks like a giant bean grasped in the palm of the hand.



    The barrel points out between the user's fingers. You "pull" the trigger by pressing on a thumbed button at the top.

    "Point and shoot couldn't be easier," states the blurb on the product's Web site.

    Even better, Constitution Arms says it's had it certified by the FDA as a "Class I Medical Device." That means doctors could prescribe the handgun to qualified patients, who would then have some or all of the cost reimbursed by Medicare or private insurance.

    The gun will cost about $300. A deposit to get yours when it's ready is $25, though Constitution Arms doesn't say exactly when that will be.

    I love that the headline says it is "AIMED AT THE ELDERLY, DISABLED".

    Yeah, I know what they meant. But talking about a gun and then who it is "aimed" at, it's kind of funny.
