Salt Home Protection Gun for Self Defense Uses Pepper Spray Pellets

Posted on 16 May 2016 by David Allred

Salt Home Defense Gun with Pepper Spray PelletsBefore today, I’ve never owned pepper spray. To me, pepper spray is something that is used right before a team of armed men raid a room, a police office would use on a deranged, unarmed person before slapping on the cuffs, or that a woman would use in hopes that she could reach safety before her assailant overcame the effects of the pepper spray and caught up…in which case, maybe Runner Click would be able to help her choose the right show that would give her some speed.

The Salt Home Defense Gun

Salt has created a CO2 propelled pepper spray pellet fired through a gun that’s Matrix worthy in size. I like to call it the Salt Gun. Their main customers are those looking for a viable form of home protection and self defense other than using an actual firearm. As an example, I know there are those of you out there that just aren’t confident in using a firearm yourself and fear that your children will find a firearm in your home and potential harm themselves with it, either accidentally or intentionally.

Personally, I’ve always been the kind of guy that feels proper education and quality handling time with your children will solve most potential firearm related accidents. Plus, if I feel threatened by another person, I want to make sure they can’t get up after I fire at them…if you know what I mean.

But if you’re not like me and feel you’re not quite ready for a firearm in your home, this is safe for kids. Yes, it will hurt if shot by it. Yes, the pepper spray will burn if shot with it, but, it’s safer than a real firearm, for children.

Other uses for this type of a weapon would be limited only by your imagination. I can see it being used on that annoying dog that chases my kids down the street as they ride their bikes, or that drops a dookie in my front yard.

It’s a pretty large gun, so concealing it on your person or in a purse might be a task. It’s lightweight, easy to fire and launches the pellets at a pretty good velocity, reaching distances of over 150 ft.

Curious of your opinions. What do you think?

Again, this is just my review of a product I think could be of help in either self defense or pest control. That’s up to you to decide for yourself. If you’d like your product reviewed, I review pretty much anything from hunting gear reviews to hunting boots, which you can read more about here.

What? A Double Barrel Pistol! The AF2011-A1

What? A Double Barrel Pistol! The AF2011-A1

Posted on 30 April 2014 by David Allred

AF2011-A1 Double Barrel PistolThe AF2011-A1 Double Barrel Pistol is the very first industrial double barrel pistol of all time. For those of you who love shooting the Colt 1911-A1, the AF2011-A1 was designed in commemoration of its legend. This bad boy packs a punch as a double barrel .45 caliber pistol and is extremely accurate. According to Arsenal Firearms, it will group all 16 bullets, held in a dual, single column magazine, in a target the size of an orange at 15 yards and in a watermelon at 15 yards. In around 3 seconds, with only 8 trigger pulls, you can fire 16 rounds into a target.

Man, if only Chuck Norris could get his hands on this collectors item. Then again, Chuck doesn’t need a gun!

The AF2011-A1 double barrel pistol has some pretty cool features.

  • Many of it’s parts are interchangeable with the 1911-A1, which makes repair and replacement parts cheaper, and more available. Interchangeable parts include the firing pins, recoil springs and rods, magazine bodies and inner parts, grips, sites, etc…
  • It has a single slide, single grip safety, single hammer and instead of two magazines, it’s a single column with dual magazines. So instead of having to load two single magazines, drop one and load one!
  • I read somewhere that it comes with the option to have the ability to fire each trigger separately as well as simultaneously. I didn’t see that option anywhere on the Arsenal Firearms website, so I’m just chalking that up to be a rumor.

AF2011-A1 Double Barrel PistolsMy first thoughts about a double barrel pistol were:

I’ve tried to pull the triggers of two pistols while holding them side by side. It’s not an easy thing to do. One trigger always gets pulled before the other. So I doubted even wanting to have the option to fire each trigger separately. However, by including two triggers, two barrels and one slide into this double barrel pistol, it automatically eliminates the struggle of holding two pistols side by side. However, if you want separate firing triggers, why not just use two pistols, which can each be pointed at their own targets? Sure, if the AF2011-A1 did come with the option to fire each barrel separately, you could probably pull the left trigger with your left hand and the right with your right hand.

This takes a whole new meaning to the term, “Dual Wielding!”

I think I’d rather have them fire at the same time, delivering twice the impact of a regular .45.

AF2011-A1 Double Barrel Pistol with HolstersDo the barrels fire straight or are the slightly angled in, toward each other?¬†Maybe this proves my lack of engineering knowledge, but it was one of my first thoughts. If you think about hitting a target, you want to hit it dead center. With the double barrel pistol, you’ll always miss dead center and hit one round a little left and one a little right.

But then I realized, would you rather have two rounds enter an assailant through the same hole, or hit them twice…one on each side of his chest?

Answered my own question.

PLUS, think about the diversity here when choosing your rounds. You can load one side of the magazine with hollow point rounds while loading the other side with armor piercing rounds. It’ll get the job done one way or the other!

AF2011-A1 Double Barrel Pistol with MagazineIn closing, too many guns to buy and so little time! The AF2011-A1 double barrel pistol is definitely one to add to the collection.

Before you click away, you must, and I say MUST watch the video below. The first minute is sort of boring, but right around 1:05 when he starts firing the pistol, it’s just plain awesome!

If you can picture the last movie you watched where someone fires a pistol in slow motion…the movement of the slide, the explosion of the bullet from the barrel with the shell being ejected and the lingering puff of smoke! Just picture double of all that, and that’s what’s in the video.

Here’s a link to the double barrel pistol on Arsenal Firearms.

Axe Guns or Gun Axes? Axe Beats Bayonet Anyday!

Posted on 06 December 2013 by David Allred

Axe Guns I have always had a place in my heart for unusual and unique weapons, especially those with more than one use. Some can be a little extreme, such as the AR-15 chainsaw combo, but others can come in real handy in a sticky situation.

The weapon of topic today is the axe gun.

I’m sort of divided as to whether or not I should call it the axe gun or the gun axe, but am leaning more towards “axe gun.” An AK-47 would be called an “assault rife” by many, so axe gun it is.

The Axe Gun and its Uses.

Now you’re probably thinking that there’s no way in hell you’d use this thing to actually chop wood with. I know because I had the same thought. Most of these axe guns are more or less hatchets.

With that said, “The Patriot” comes to mind, starring Mel Gibson. He uses a hatchet as his weapon of choice¬†during the revolutionary war in that movie, which is exactly how I’d be using the axe gun. Instead of a bayonet, you’ve got an axe blade fixed to the end of your rifle.

The first image on this page looks way to nice to have been used back in the day, as if it were a remake of something that existed in the past. So after a quick search, I found some pretty sweet and different versions of the axe gun.

If you come across something that you’d like to share here, leave a comment with the URL to the image and I’ll see about adding it. Also, if you’ve had the opportunity to fire one of the axe guns or rifles, I’d love to hear your feedback.

Dyson LePetit Protector Ring Pistol

Posted on 11 January 2012 by David Allred

LePetit Protector Ring GunTo add to our collection of rare and collectible guns here on The Gunsman, check out this little bad boy. It’s called the Dyson LePetit Protector and was sold primarily to gamblers. I’ve seen both a five shot and a six shot ring pistol and have provided images of both for you below. I know for sure that the five shot ring gun is chambered in 5mm, but the six shot looks to be a bit smaller to me.

How Does It Work?

Petit Ring PistolIf you take a close look, you’ll see three levers. The largest one towards the top is the hammer, the one on the side and in the middle (in this photo) is used to release/spin the chambers. The smallest lever is the trigger.

I don’t imagine the kick on this little package of concealed protection would be anything to Petit Protector Ring Pistolfret about. If anything, when fired, it might feel like flicking yourself on the finger. Each ring gun comes with a tiny flat head screw driver and sometimes you’ll see other tools which are used in ejecting the empty cartridges. If you look really closely at the rounds, you’ll see a little pin near the primer end of the round. That pin is probably the only thing LePetit Ring Pistolpreventing the rounds from falling out the front side of the chamber.

I couldn’t find any evidence of these still being manufactured today and assume that a few of the guns rings in these images are over 100 years old. The quality of workmanship is amazing to me with designs to make the gun appear like a nice fat ring that, if used with a right hook, could render a grown man unconscious!

LePetit Protector Ring GunHow Much Does it Sell For?

I’ve seen the older, more antique ring guns sold for $13,000 online at iCollector.com. However, total sale price included two ring pistols as a set. One for him and one for her. A match made in heaven.

Great collectors item, but if you want to shoot it often, you’ll probably have to get your rounds custom made. I wouldn’t mind owning one of these little pistols for myself.

If you know anything more about the Dyson LePetit Protector ring gun, I’d like to hear about it.
