The Japanese Nambu Type 94 Pistol is one dangerous sidearm.
When loaded, this pistol was known to fire at the worst possible times. Witness why the Nambu Type 94 Pistol might be the most dangerous handgun ever.
Back in World War Two the forces of Japan had a sidearm that was as likely to injure them as it would an enemy. It was the Nambu Type 94 Pistol.
The Nambu Type 94 Pistol was chambered for the somewhat weak 8mm Nambu cartridge. The magazine capacity was 6 rounds. When loaded if the pistol could fire accidentally if the exposed sear bar gets pushed. Holstering a loaded Nambu Type 94 Pistol could cause a nasty accident when that sear bar gets bumped. Now that is quite disturbing.
Obviously this old military sidearm would never make it past modern firearms lawyers to say the least. Special thanks go out to TFB TV for sharing this video and teaching us a really unknown historical weapon fail that could still bite you in the...well leg.
