We all know what guns are, what they look like and the reasons they are used. For me, movies are the only place I get to see weapons, and sometimes in the hands of a military man. Believe it or not, there are many people who have never seen guns in real life; some are just not interested, and some haven’t gotten a chance to. However, there are many who have a passion for collecting guns or go on haunting trips every week.
What I’m trying to say is that guns are nothing new in our lives. We all have seen one virtually or in real life. However, what Fifty50 is going to talk about is the guns you haven’t seen yet. There are many weird looking guns in this world. They might be bizarre looking due to poor designs, or lack of materials, but they for sure are something you have never seen before. Whether or not you are weapon enthusiast, you will be interested in this upcoming list of three weirdest-looking guns.
1. Shattuck Palm Pistol
When we imagine a gun, we imagine it having a space to place your fingers and a long tube where the bullets come out. However, that is not the case for the Shattuck palm pistol. Produced in the end of the 19th century by the Shattuck Company of Hatfield, Massachusetts, this particular weapon was designed for carrying in a pocket (I mean, the size already gave that away, right?)
3. Duck's Foot Pistol
You thought it couldn’t get any weirder right? Well, it just got a lot weirder. This pistol is called “The Duck’s Foot Pistol” for the obvious reason, its design. Ignoring its weird shape, this weapon was very useful in cases of an individual person against a group, such as bank and prison guards. The picture above shows the four-barreled rifled, however, you can also find an eight-barreled version!
2. Magpul FMG9
Everything is not what it seems, and this weapon proved that. Yes, weapon!
I do not have to explain why this gun can also be called “the folding gun” right? It might look like just a box with a handle on top of it to make it easier for you to carry it, but it is much more than that. The Magpul FMG9 was developed for the U.S. secret service or law enforcement agencies as a personal protection weapon. In 2008, the folding gun was introduced, with no intent of making it more than a prototype. However, in 2019, it was announced that Magpul and Zev Technologies were to be collaborated to produce the FDP-9 and FDC-9, both having the ability to fold.
