Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day – Clive Hill

Wait! Isn’t this impossible? Clive says he’s a gunsmith from Norwich, England. Can anyone ID that “gat pistol”? See what one Brit carries at Everyday Carry . . .

    It’s a Gat, he even said so, and included a tin of ammo in the picture.


    Do the laws concerning FAC power levels mean it’s not a weapon and you can walk around with one concealed upon your person?

  2. avatar Joe R. says:

    It’s a lighter.

    Run it thru ballistics, yep, butane.

  3. avatar 5spot says:

    Pellet gun. See the tin.

    1. avatar Joe R. says:

      it’s a water heater.

      No, wait, is it a snow cone machine?

      1. avatar Cornholio says:

        This is an espresso machine!

  4. avatar S.CROCK says:

    Few things make me glad to live in California. The thought of living in England or almost anywhere in Europe makes me count my blessings.

  5. avatar Setarip says:

    This is one of the dumber “pocket dumps” posted here in a while. I do truly feel bad for anyone in the U.K. Who can’t carry an actual Firearm.

  6. avatar anonymoose says:

    Pew pew!

  7. avatar strych9 says:

    Chinese laundry knife… WTAF?

    1. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

      You can carry anything that is obviously useful for self defense. The knife probably has a nail head tip so it can’t be used for stabbing. Very sad.

      1. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

        oops, “can’t” not “can”

  8. avatar former water walker says:

    Most idiotic “pocket dump” ever…last time I add to these stats:(

    1. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

      I think it provides and interesting perspective. The poor bastard has been sold down the river by his fellow voters.

      1. avatar JohnnyIShootStuff says:

        The house of lords isn’t elected.

        1. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

          The legislation wasn’t drafted in the house of commons?

  9. avatar Rusty Chains says:

    Now that is truly sad. Maybe he could hit the bad guy with it, if it is heavy enough. Though he would be better off with a Mean Gene Leather coin carrier for hitting a bad guy with.

  10. avatar Pete says:

    I had one if those as a kid, horrible design.

    1. avatar Pete says:

      Parents; if your kid can handle a pellet gun, just see that they get a Benjamin, Hatsan or other reputable make. A couple extra hundred is a small price to make better use of their formative years.

  11. avatar Asdf says:

    England even regulates air guns, and they can’t be over a certain velocity. Anyone know the FPS of the Gat?

    1. avatar FedUp says:

      I once had a 12″ piece of latex tubing that a BB would fit tightly into.
      Muzzle velocity of my hollow rubber band? More than a Gat. More than my Marksman 1010 pistol also, which was sort of a 1970s version of the Gat as far as uselessness went.

  12. avatar Jay in Florida says:

    Looks like an old time cork gun but I don’t see the string???

    1. avatar Joel IV says:

      It shoots corks, pellets, darts, q-tips, nerds candy, pieces of food… just about anything you put in it or smush to the front of it.

  13. avatar Joel says:

    I still have a Gat as well. “The gun built for fun.”

  14. avatar IdahoBoy says:

    An oft heard refrain of the caliber wars is “I still wouldn’t want to get shot with one”.

    Well, I doubt I could tell I was shot with this particular pea shooter. Unless of course somebody hit me in the eye. From close range.

    1. avatar knightofbob says:

      With a cork. Heavy and slow…

  15. avatar Scoutino says:

    We used to shoot each other with similar pistols as kids. Pellet would leave little welt like plastic 6mm BB. They still sell them in CZ for anout $10.
