Have You Ever Seen a Sedgley Glove Gun? You Should

The Sedgley Glove Gun looks like something out of a James Bond movie.

This experimental pistol was mounted on a glove to be used as a contact weapon.

Ian of Forgotten Weapons shows this very interesting historical weapon in great detail.

What the heck is that thing mounted on the outside of a leather glove? Well that is the World War II experimental Sedgley Glove Gun.

This strange .38 S&W single shot pistol was designed by the US Navy and may have actually seen combat service as a last ditch weapon. The purpose of this weapon was to punch an adversary with your fist while wearing the gun glove. This would push in the plunger, thereby discharging a single .38 caliber bullet into your foe.

This is literally the definition of packing a punch.
