What happens when a DeWalt fanatic decides to apply for his concealed carry permit? Well, chances are you'll get something like this – though we have to wonder if this will lead to a new "carry in disguise" license. Mark Bilicki of the Allen Arms in Greenville teamed up with gunsmith James Oberkirsch to develop the fully functional DeWalt Glock 21 .45. Except the design looks like one of the company's new cordless drills…and there's a drill bit coming out of the front of the gun, just below the barrel. While the drill doesn't work, my thought is that if you really want a hole that bad, a Glock might do the trick.
What's really cool is that the DeWalt-style Glock Model 21 is actually a fully functional weapon. Bottom line, you'll probably be carrying it around in a tool belt, and no one would be the wiser… not that we're advocating that, because technically it would violate concealed carry laws as we know it (although it would Make of course for an interesting legal challenge).
