Huge handguns tend to be massively more powerful than they need be, hard to hold up and because of their big cartridges, very difficult to control with any accuracy.
They do have the advantage that any assailant, faced with a small cannon, will tend to be more intimidated than if a tiny Derringer appears.
Today’s invention offers a way for people who want to defend their property or family to appear more threatening and still have some chance of staying on-target.
This takes the form of a plastic model of a large-calibre pistol which is very convincingly textured and painted to resemble a huge handgun.
This acts as a case into which a small, controllable gun can be fitted.
When under attack, a gun owner can point a lightweight but scary pistol they are confident about handling effectively.
