    I've seen these advertised for a while now, and always thought they were a cute idea. Not terribly practical, but cute nonetheless.

    Does anyone here have a Stinger pen gun? What do you think of it?

    I'd want to try one before I would buy it, but it seems like a nifty novelty gun.

    Never seen one in person, but I've heard they're not bad as a novelty item. Considering the MSRP of $275, I think I'd buy a NAA Mini first. They're both cute, the mini may be a little more practical, but the stinger is more unique.

    They're made right here in Upper Michigan, in Souix Sault Marie.

    Have a couple in a local shop. Dealer said the Sherriff's called complaining, saying they weren't in their reigstry (we have handgun registration in MI).

    If you made a .22 caliber pen to fit in the barrel, sure.

    Local gunshop had one for around $250. Rather spend $220 on a naa magnum with conversion cyl.

    I remember when they came out. I wanted one, but you needed the "chief" to sign for it and it was a no-go. :( Heck, nowadays give me a lathe and a spare bbl and I'll make it myself. :evil: Be happy to serial # it too just to keep Los Federales happy. 4v50 #1.

    Gary,
    The Stinger Pen Gun is actually legally considered a handgun, I think. It doesn't fire from a "pen" shape, it bends out into a more conventional "pistol" shape before firing.

    Just walk away...

    If I had the pen then I'd end up wanting the stapler that converts to a bazooka and the Kevlar, tactical desktop calendar. I'd become entangled in an endless, sick cycle of always wanting more defensive office supplies. :D

    cordex, you are correct, Braverman got the Class I classification for his design from ATF because it did not fire from the 'straight' position. I have a Braverman Pen Pistol made by American Derringer. The new company has renamed the Pen Pistol as Stinger, which was actually an AOW firearm that was a true pen gun made by Military Armament Corp (MAC) of Powder Springs, Ga. Mitch Werbell's outfit. I think the name change is because the new company is trying to get some brand recognition off the original.

    These things were ALL over the last gun show I attended. I should have paid more attention to them. So, most of you would say they're of good quality? Nice conversation piece~~with other gunnies, of course. :)

    5 years ago I owned one, neat little thing but it was loud! It was swiped out of my toolbox at work. Learned 2 lessons that day, never trust anyone and write down the serial numbers of your guns.
