Palm Pistol Status Report
MAPLEWOOD, NJ – -(AmmoLand.com)- The following is a brief status report on development of the Palm Pistol.
The response to the design has been very encouraging. Mainstream media and trade press stories coupled with the gun’s initial designation by the FDA as a medical device, created widespread domestic and international publicity. As a result, we received 417 pre-production reservations to date. Several well known gun magazines have informed us they are eager to conduct a detailed review of our prototypes as soon as they become available.
We are currently engaged in Phase 1 design work consisting of the dual triggers, grip safeties, striker, cocking mechanism and breech access latch. We are also engaged in intellectual property protection activities, including completion of patents pending and securing trademark protection.
We are engaged in promising discussions with several small arms manufacturers regarding bringing the Palm Pistol to market. We are working toward the goal of creating prototypes late in 2009 with deliveries sometime in 2010, although a number of factors could change this timeline.
We will keep you posted as we progress. As always, please feel free to contact us with additional questions.
The Palm Pistol is an ergonomically innovative single shot double action only defensive firearm chambered in 9mm that may be fired using either hand without regard to orientation of the stock. Suited for home defense, concealed carry or as a backup gun. It is also ideal for seniors, disabled or others who may have limited strength or manual dexterity. Using the thumb instead of the index finger for firing, it significantly reduces muzzle drift, one of the principal causes of inaccurate targeting. Point and shoot couldn’t be easier.
