GSL shows off their curious, and suppressed, pen gun (VIDEO)

Jackson, Michigan’s own GSL Technology made a pen gun that mates to a suppressor and are exploring their options as to what to do with it.

Greg Latka, GSL’s founder, talks about the currently experimental GSL .380 Pen Gun. Originally designed back in the day for another suppressor company (*cough* Gemtech *cough*) the little single-shot popgun offers what they describe as a “last-ditch option in self-defense” and, as they show off, can be made hearing safe through the use of a suppressor, in this case, one of their Boss 9mm cans.

The bad news is that, as it doesn’t look like it folds to form a pistol grip– like the NFA-compliant Stinger  — GSL’s pen gun likely needs a stamp to transfer.

Since the NFA was adopted in 1934, federal regulators have generally characterized pen guns that can fire while still looking like a writing tool as “Any Other Weapons,” while those that fold to form a pistol grip are still Title I firearms.

Either way, it is still pretty cool, and depending on the feedback they get, they could add it to the catalog.
