So what's the worst stuff people have seen?

I was going to say the Standard Firearms Pepperbox thing, but the wrist holster definitely beat it out.

Close runner up is the Taurus Spectrum. I really hope that's a 3D-printed prototype, because otherwise it looks so incredibly cheap and fragile that I'd honestly be afraid that it would blow up when you pull the trigger. I didn't think it was possible, but Taurus appears to have out-cheaped themselves.

    I noticed that one too.  I am not sure what to make of it.  There are hints that seem somewhat cool, but it just does not come completely together.   There is just something nebulously off about it.  It has the potential to be something interesting, but it doesn't quite get there.

    I think it is 'cool,' in that it looks like something clone trooper flag officers should be carrying in Star Wars. 

    Beyond that, as Raptor said, it looks chinsy.  As if Taurus didn't already have a reputation for poor quality .380 pistols. :facepalm

    I generally am OK with Taurus but that is in the hate category myself just looks like a toy.

    There fixed it for you!  Amazing how a traditional color pattern projects a serious change of perspective!

    Not to mention, the Spectrum is a true DAO.

    Still looks like a cheap dollar-store squirt gun to me.

    Oh yeah, almost forgot, the Spectrum is manufactured in the US.   :coffee

    It will be interesting to see how the current single action pocket .380 vs  true DAO .380, plays out in the concealed carry market.   :panic

    As for non-traditional colors; on my last visit to the local arms and munitions emporium, I happened to see several "combat tupperware" pistols, of Austrian lineage, fitted out with "restroom green" frames.    :o  :o

    As for the 3 x 2 Volley fire pepper box look-alike, this little gun is cementing the legal status of one trigger pull for 2 round simultaneous discharge volley fire.  Use your imagination to envision the possibilities.
