It's a pretty finely crafted little toy.

If you get shot with one, use some cortisone ointment to ease the itching.

This 2.34mm rim fire ammunition is made by SwissMiniGun.

Blank and live cartridges are available.

The power of the SwissMiniGun Cal. 2.34m/m ammunition is just less than 1 joule.

We would like to take this opportunity to inform journalists who are interested in writing articles about our product that the power of most airguns or BB guns, which are in many countries freely on sale, can exceed over 10 times the power of our ammunition.

We do not wish to find on the web the same kind of nonsense article we have found lately. (Underlining mine - 230RN.)

Therefore, journalists are very welcome to contact us for any further information. Thank you.

how could you possibly scare anyone with one of those? I'll check later but I think even most better than $15 airsoft guns have more power than that!

I'm curious as to how it's actually fired. I mean, you can't even fit a finger in the trigger guard. Pinch the grip between thumb and forefinger, use a pen to fire it?

I'm sure it would make the ultimate G.I. Joe sidearm though.

Coastie2010, I don't think you actually have to get your finger inside the trigger guard....I think the whole trigger guard and "trigger" act at the trigger. When you look at the close up pics you can see what looks like a larger trigger attached to the trigger guard which is what I think you pull. I could be wrong though.
