    My favorite, yet to be designed as I think about the overall possibilities, is a man's cane, cleverly concealing a firearm within. About 50% of the men in our locale walk with a cane; it's a retirement Mecca, after all. A cane-concealed gun could easily prove to be the deterrant needed should an old gentleman be accosted by some of today's lowlifes.

    Frank did you watch Bat Masterson? The TV show from the 60s where the guy had a gun in his walking cane?

    In 1978, the dissident Bulgarian writer Georgi Markov was assassinated in London. A pellet was fired into his leg via an umbrella carried by a member of the Bulgarian secret police.

    Cane guns were quite common in the late 19th and early 20th centurys. I've always wanted one.

    I once owned a pen gun, back in my wilder days.

    Hey, with your background in machining, and my penchant for designing stuff, between the two of us, maybe........

    @Ike Willis A pen gun? That sounds like something right out of a "James Bond" movie! :) What kind of "damage" could a pen gun do?

    A variety of cane guns are available here, each equipped with 12 shot semi-automatic air gun installed into the shaft. These are CO2 powered, firing .22 caliber steel balls, not what you'd like to use in a gunfight. I don't know too many people who'd be willing to shell out $1,300 for an air gun but they are pretty.

    They are not as pretty as the ones that were once manufactured by Remington, though. They produced only 1,800 metallic cartridge cane guns over a thirty year time span, starting in 1858, these being .22 and .32 caliber. They also made some percussion cane guns that were offered in .31 and .44 caliber.

    @Ken Anderson : I am guessing Maine's firearms laws are perhaps less restrictive (and Unconstitutional) than those of most other East Coast States, given the overall rural nature of the State. Frank
