Not sure if real…

…or an April Fool’s joke

North America Arms set a new power standard for mini, macro and nano revolvers with its introduction of the Judgment Day – Brimstone Edition Mini. The Judgment Day is a highly concealable firearm, chambered for the 454 Casull. The Judgment Day – Brimstone Edition marks the first product introduction since the company’s relocation from Briggs & Stratton on the Avon, Iowa to Brigadoon, Scotland.

My initial reaction? “Oh my dear sweet Lord in heaven. NO.”

I mean, really. What would such a thing be good for? A secondary back-up gun in case your primary back-up fails? How in the hell could anyone expect to hit anything with something like that? I mean, I’ve shot your standard magnum revolvers — both .44 and .357 Magnum out of standard-length barrels and .357 out of the 2.25″ barrel of a Ruger SP101. The first two were quite a handful, and the last was downright painful. I can only imagine how bad .454 Casull would be out of a 1.125-inch barrel. I suppose it beats a sharp stick, but I think it’d be better just rather leave enough room for another standard-size revolver. At least then you’d have six extra rounds instead of just two. To each his own, though…

    It’s meant for OC in a non-retention holster when you’re strolling through a bad neighborhood. If some disadvantaged youth tries to turn his life around by grabbing it off your hip and trying to shoot you with it, he’ll still be writhing on the ground holding his shooting hand when the cops show up.

    I don’t think it’s real because of the part that says they moved from America to Scotland. I can’t see them moving to such a gun-hostile country’

      Not just Scotland, but “Brigadoon, Scotland”.

      I think folks are going to find that this gun is backordered about 100 years…
