pocket carry

This is a bad idea on so many levels:

Tex-Grebner-HeadAmong other obvious failures he demonstrates in the video, it seems like a really good way to Tex Grebner yourself.  I don’t know what people’s obsession with pocket carry is in the first place.  You can get a really decent holster for under $40, carry a proper defense caliber pistol in it, stop bad guys AND not have to worry about ventilating your junk.  Don’t even get me started on pea shooters like that for primary EDC.

Thoughts?

Mattv2099 with a little something for the lint haters:

Whether it be pocket carry, or regular carry some people think a bit of lint will render their semi-auto useless.  I think it’s safe to say that the amount of lint you’d ever get in your gun from regular carrying wouldn’t be an issue.

Glock-Lint-Torture-TestFunny how the mag kept coming out… maybe he was hitting the release with those bulky gloves though?

I think Matt summed it up best at the end of the video with: “so…. whatever.”

Thoughts?

The Downsizer Corp in Santee, CA made and delivered a handful of its WSP models for a few years before SB15 became law and production stopped for good. I believe fewer than 100 pistols were delivered up to that point. Whatever the exact number was, it was’t very large.

The WSP model received lots of positive reviews after they were introduced at the SHOT Show (1998, I think). There is a very detailed article by Robert Hausman in HANDGUNS 2001.

Specifications Model WSP (World’s Smallest Pistol)
Calibers 45 ACP, 357 Magnum (Also fires 38 Special), 9mm & 40 S&W
Capacity Single Shot
Trigger Double action only
Action Tip up barrel, push button release
Materials Stainless steel, CNC machined
Sights None, smooth snag free top
Safety Internal firing pin block
Overall Length 3.25″ (Smaller than a playing card)
Barrel Length 2.10″
Height 2.25″ (Smaller than a playing card)
Thickness 0.90″
Weight 11 oz.

Wow that’s awesome.  It would definitely make a very versatile pocket gun.
