    Minus on projection as a door pull (it will wrench one’s wrist)
    minus on door swing as something will be pinched
    Minus on catching a purse strap
    Now if it function(s) as downturn>trigger pull > open> return to horizontal  (kill shot?) ok

       I was going to say, I really hope that pulling the trigger unlatches the door. I can see that it would not be particularly ergonomic, though, as you say.

    I know the perfect accessory for that.

    Thought this was related to the UNC SWAT story.

    The younger me would have loved to have crap like this, the “now” me knows I’d run into it on a regular basis. If I had the money I’d Nerf nearly every surface in my home.

    er, it doesn’t appear to be ‘made from’.  It seems to have been cast from a mold of one, but it doesn’t appear to actually be made from an actual Makarov.

    time for an old fashioned door draw….okay, we both take ten paces across the room and the first one to open the door wins!  Loser gets shot in the crotch.

  8. If I had me an office, I’d get one of these installed, and whenever some-one knocked I’d go “Pull the trigger, darlin!’” in a JR Ewing voice.

    I’ve noticed that Russians seem to have a uniquely tacky sense of style not shared by any other group – it’s both luxurious and cheap at the same time, while also being dreadful and impractical.  It’s like they pick all the worst bits from every decade.
