The Smallest Revolver In The World

mini

This is ridiculous… The little gun is about 5.5 cm long and fires a 2.34mm caliber cartridge – specially made of course. It’s illegal for import into the states, but would run about $6000 if you could smuggle one in through Canada. I have no idea what in the hell you would use it for.

Check it out.

Need a lighter for when the shit hits the fan? Apparently, you’re looking for the Delta Windmill lighter. It’s got some crazy “catalyzer” coil and “piezoelectric” ignition system that ensures this baby lights even when the wind gusts reach 80mph. No foolin… You can get yours for $55.

I was.

This, my friends, is the Spyder II GX laser from WickedLasers.com. The Spyder II is a military grade laser featuring an aerospace aluminum body and the first every hand-held thermoelectric cooling system. It shoots a laser that is visible for hundreds of miles and is intense enough to light a match from more than a few feet away. Frankly, I don’t know why you would include such hardware in your every day carry pack, but if ya do – BE CAREFUL as this thing can blind.
