SwissMiniGun is proud to present the smallest revolver and ammunition in the world.
It's total length does not exceed 5.5 cm.

It shoots 2.34 m/m rim-fire ammunition.

This firearm is a scaled-down model of the much acclaimed and mystical Colt Python with all the same features as are found on the real size gun.

The manufacture of this exceptional miniature revolver has only been possible by exploiting the incomparable expertise and latest technologies of the Swiss Watch and Jewellery Industry, upon which its Worldwide reputation is built.

You never know when you might need a firearm and one that can hang off of a keychain sounds pretty spiffy to me. I wonder if you could kill a person with one of these? It's definitely capable of penetrating skin but it takes quite a bit more to actually inhume an individual.

Bullet energy: 1.0888 J. 0.8030 ft-lbf

Studies recommend that an arrow deliver 25 to 39 foot-pounds of energy to kill animals with thin hides and light bones. If you're after large game with thick hides, your bow should deliver 40 to 80 foot-pounds of energy. If you seek boxcar-sized African animals, you'd better eat your Wheaties. Theoretically, you need 80 to 129 foot-pounds of energy.

Hmmm...I dunno if it's really equivalent since it's discussing arrows but I guess you can't kill wild game with these things. Still, you pop someone in the eye and it dosen't really matter how much kinetic energy the bullet is packing.
