    Default "Palm Pistol" Project for Disabled Shooters

    I am working as a consultant with a firearm designer, Mr. Matthew Carmel, of Constitution Arms (www.ConstitutionArms.com), who has manufactured a hand gun specifically for the disabled. See www.palmpistol.com. He has also designed a carbine for small game hunting.

    We are conducting a study to evaluate the extent to which the design mitigates the problems disabled shooters may have when using a traditional hand gun. the reason for the study is to support efforts to convince the FDA to re-list the design as a "medical device" under 21 CFR 890.5050 and .5073. The end goal is to seek reimbursement under Medicare and/or private health insurance for use of the device with disabled shooters.

    The study is being conducted at the Delaware Valley Sports Center in Philadelphia. We are looking for disabled shooters to participate.

    1. Study participants will receive two to three FREE instructional sessions with the .38 Special Palm Pistol and also, with a standard small J-frame .38 Special revolver and a "user-friendly" traditional 9mm semi-auto.

    2. All study participants will also receive a discount on the purchase of the Palm Pistol in exchange for their participation.

    Please let me know if you are aware of people who are interested in participating.

    I forwarded this to a good friend of mine to see if he'd be interested in participating.

    Very intriguing.

    I'm not disabled, at least yet, and can still work my pistols (and probably annoy forum members with questions about recoil all of the time), but as someone with a lifelong joint condition who might need something like this someday, this is a project that is great to see.

    I'm assuming that since the functions have been made to be easier for someone with reduced grip strength and mobility, that the (here I go again) recoil is also made more manageable?

    Everyone should be given the opportunity to have the upper hand, no matter what their physical condition and health may be.

    What would the projected pricing be on these firearms?



    I have a friend who is a dealer who I might show this to if you do not mind.

    MSRP is $1300.00.

    This pistol is featured at the 5:40 mark. The opinions featured in this v-log are not mine so no one should be taking anything personal. Everyone should be left to draw their own conclusion.

    If the product takes off I'm sure the price will come down...have to cover the R&D costs at the outset.

    If this is all that a person can use, it's worth every penny to them.


    Yeah, the comments are pretty asinine, they seem to be ignoring the purpose of the pistol.

    The comments on this forum were pretty bad too from what I recall.

    It's been discussed before.
