That seems silly

I can’t even.

    A pistol with grips for both hands seems like a good idea. I stopped in a gun shop in Iowa once upon a time and they had some pistols for hunting. I think they used rifle cartridges, like a 30-30. They looked like they were cut down from a rifle, stock and all. Just looked for pictures and I couldn’t find anything except a Thompson Contender, and that doesn’t match my 30 year old memory.

    That seems to make the fact that I actually own a Ruger shockwave viable. And, I still don’t want to shoot the damn thing.

    If they’re going to do some silliness like this, at least put a green laser on it so you can see whar yer aimin at.

    My mother, now 85, has carried a S&W Centennial loaded with Nyclad hollowpoints, for at least two decades. She hates practicing with it, because even with the soft shooting .38s, it is too snappy for her and she can’t really see the sights any more.

    When she visited me a few years back and we shot a Ruger Mark II, she loved it. Good sights, no recoil to speak of, and 10 whole shots instead of just 5 between reloads. She wanted a 22LR, but a revolver because they’re easier to reload and don’t require any slide manipulation. OK, then.

    And when I got her a lever action Daisy Model 1938 Red Ryder BB Gun with 650 shot capacity, to annoy the squirrels that raid her bird feeder, she was so happy she texted me daily for a week about what fun it was.

    It isn’t always about stopping power. Sometimes its about being able to hit what you aim at, or even just about having fun annoying squirrels.

    “A gunfight is not won by the first shot, but by the first hit” – [readers may look-up the citation].

    So, does this ‘silly’ system improves a defender’s shooting accuracy against an attacker? It looks like it could. Then, it’ might not be such a bad idea for elderly, those with eye-hand coordination problems, etc.

    Interesting idea about using the ADA (Americans with Disability Act) against gun laws. Hmmmm …
