Mini Gun

http://www.swissminigun.ch/home.html



The Swiss Minigun is so small it is the sort of weapon that can be hung on a key chain. This is a real revolver and it fires real ammunition. The power of this weapon is pretty low. I doubt that it could actually kill anyone. I think that it could provide a great distraction if one of these tiny guns was fired into your face.

This gun is not legally sold in the United States, but they are sold in Canada, and being so tiny you could get an awful lot of them in one car trunk. There are many such weapons that are very small or otherwise look as if they are not real weapons. Recently, one of my brother officers took a ball point pen off of a suspect, and found it to be a small single shot pistol.

Firearms and edged weapons can be disguised in many ways. A lipstick can hide a knife, a cell phone can contain a small firearm, a belt buckle can hide either a knife or a gun. The best way to avoid these weapons is to control the suspects hands. Their steely gaze will not harm you, but their hands can quickly go for a disguised weapon. The double surprise of making a seemly innocent item into a weapon can give them the lag time they need to successfully assault you or to escape. Control the hands and you control the weapons, that's what the SGT Says.

Not legal in the US, you have to move to Canada. Too cold there for you!
