As people get older, it is often the case that their grip strength starts to diminish. On top of that there are all kinds of nasty degenerative joint conditions that complicate matters even more. It would seem that shooting pistols becomes harder too, as the makers of the Palm Pistol believe that they have a niche to fill.
It can be fired using only your thumb and it does look surprisingly easy to grip. Unfortunately, there is a bit of a let down for serious gun enthusiasts in that it only holds a single round. It is coming in time for the gift giving season for a surprisingly cheap $300 (it costs $25 to reserve). [Palm Pistol via Oh Gizmo, I New Idea Homepage]
