Sorry if this is a dupe...new to me:




The ARES Defense Systems Company is selling a Mag-Light flashlight that doubles as a SHOTGUN. A grenade-style pin removes the safety, and the flashlight fires a .410 shotgun round out the back when a button is pressed. A Mini-Mag size fires a .380 round.

Hmmmm

Kinda cool.
When you are using the flashlight you have the shotgun pointed back at your body. I don't know if I would consider this a practical tool; more as just a curio.

I bet I will get one of these in the same box that my Shrike will come in

Should be available in 2 weeks.

That's going to be an AOW, right?

I've heard that .410 sucks out of a short barrel like that.

I make it a habit of not pointing guns at myself.  I'll pass.

Does anybody make .410 flare rounds?

I'm thinking really hard for a purpose for this thing?

I'd imagine it would make a good backpacking flashlight. .410 will easily get rid of rattle snakes. Assuming you could aim the damn thing.

Not that this probably means anything but I have one of those Serbu Super Shorty 870s with the 6 1/2" barrel. It shoots way higher than you would think. I guess it is becuase of the short barrel. If you wanted to hit a man COM at five yards you should point it at his belt buckle. Assuming the same goes for this .410, it might actually be hard to hit a snake with it.
A D-Cell maglite would be VERY heavy for backpacking.

Heresy heresy


Don't you realize making goofy guns to solve non-existent problems is a fine old tradition.

Is that shipping before, or after the Shrikes that have had deposits down for the last 6 years?
