As LaserLyte’s Aaron Moore pronounces in this promo, the best gun is the one you have with you. Good advice. He goes on to demo his company’s Mighty Mouse laser grip on a diminutive NAA .22 magnum revolver, a gun you could stow just about anywhere. Moving not very far to the right on the size scale, we find the Smith & Wesson Escort, a tiny semi-auto Smith made back when Sammy Davis, Jr. was still on the pop charts. While slightly larger than the NAA, it’s still small and streamlined enough to tuck into, well, a body cavity. Just ask Ashley Casteneda who was arrested in Waco yesterday with a fully loaded, Model 61 stuffed into one of her orifices . . .
As wacotrib.com reported in squirm-inducing detail,
…while being transported to the McLennan County Jail, she reportedly told an officer she had a Smith and Wesson .22-caliber semiautomatic handgun lodged inside her vagina.
Officers stopped and called for a female officer, who retrieved the gun. The handgun had a round chambered and a full magazine of bullets, Swanton said.
“It was a safety concern for the victim who had a loaded firearm inside her body,” (Sgt. W. Patrick) Swanton said. “Depending on a number of factors, that gun could have gone off by body movements or compression of the trigger.
While we’d probably recommend toting that particular pistol in a pocket holster (in, you know, your pocket), Ms. Castaneda ably demonstrated that it’s certainly compact enough to keep it handy just about all the time.
But is that enough gun? Would you pack something that starts with a 2? How about a 3? What’s the smallest gun you’ll carry?
