SHOTGUN - THE SIZE OF A CREDIT CARD!

SHOTGUN - THE SIZE OF A CREDIT CARD!

MINNEAPOLIS -- A new twist on the idea of concealable weapons, the credit card-sized shotgun, is shown at Koscielski's Guns and Ammo, the only gun shop in Minneapolis. It's a two-shot weapon machined from a block of metal the height and width of a standard credit card, and about a half-inch thick. Each barrel fires seven standard steel BBs. It will retail for $100. Mark Koscielski, owner of Koscielski's Guns and Ammo, and Patrick Teel, who makes the guns in suburban Blaine, gave The Associated Press a preview Tuesday night ahead of a news conference scheduled for Wednesday. They said the guns are meant to be used only for close-range self-defense and wouldn't be effective as offensive weapons.

Looks pretty useless to me. IMHO

Doofus shotgun

Each barrel fires 7 standard BB's, right? Yee hah. You could startle a small lizard with that. You wouldn't hurt it, but maybe startle it. That's well worth the $100, right?
I'd agree that it's an ingenious device, but it's useless.

Depends on the charge. As a close-in unexpected weapon it might be able to do some serious damage. A few bb's in the heart could ruin your whole day. I'll wait for more data, of course, but I'm intrigued. I'd like to know more about it.

The credit card-sized shotgun is a muzzleloader, meaning it doesn't use shotgun shells. The user has to measure out some gunpowder, pour it in each barrel, drop seven BBs in each barrel, and tamp in a small wad of paper. A knob on one end serves as a safety, and two buttons set into a hole in the body are the electrical triggers. Each barrel fires with a loud pop.

I don't know

but for someone who has one and shot this off in someones face it might not kill them but it shure would get there attention, and at least a chance to get away.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!
