    crazy Guns On Prescription For Elderly

    A small arms manufacturer in the US is taking deposits for a gun specially designed for elderly and disabled people, who may be able to get it on prescription.

    The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is the world's first ergonomic firearm, according to Constitution Arms.
    The single-shot 9mm weapon is grasped in the palm of the hand, with the barrel pointing out between the fingers.
    Instead of pulling a trigger to fire the gun, users press their thumb on a button at the top.
    "Point and shoot couldn't be easier," the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]-based company claims on its website.
    And it goes on to say: "It is ideal for seniors, disabled or others who may have dexterity limitations or difficulty sighting and controlling a traditional revolver or semi-automatic pistol."
    The Palm Pistol has been certified as a Class I Medical Device by the US Food and Drug Administration, Constitution Arms said.
    That means doctors could prescribe it to certain people, such as those who have had fingers amputated.
    And patients could be able to claim back the cost on their medical insurance, if the manufacturer is successful in an attempt to have the gun defined as "durable medical equipment".
    The Palm Pistol will cost around $300 when it goes on sale.
    Constitution Arms has not confirmed when that will be, but is taking deposits of $25 for anyone interested in buying one.
