* During WW2, M.I.9 (the intelligence directorate charged with supporting agent operations in Europe and assisting British POW's make home runs out of captivity) devised weapons including a fountain pen that could fire spring-loaded darts. These were used as nuisance weapons against German soldiers operating in occupied France, although the possibility that the darts could be poison-tipped was also there. And the pens could also be used to write with, helping them to pass superficial examination if the carrier was detained and searched. Other weapons included incendiary bombs concealed inside rat and rabbit corpses, things fastidious Germans would pass by and shudder at. The warped genius in charge of M.I.9's weapons division was later written whole and unaltered into the Literature/JamesBond novels as Q-Branch, and [[Film/JamesBond later]], Q himself.

Added DiffLines:

* The [[https://www.idealconceal.com/ Ideal Conceal]] is a collapsible self-defense pistol whose profile resembles a smartphone when folded up in a pocket, making it very easy to conceal. Beyond the predictable freaking out from journalists and politicians, even the gun-savvy have pointed out that as nifty as it is, the slower deployment from having to unfold the weapon is a pretty big drawback that cancels out the ease of concealment.

* Mr. Igoe in ''Film/{{Innerspace}}'' has a single-shot suppressed gun disguised as a prosthetic hand. It's a real prosthetic in the sense Igoe is actually missing his hand, but it's designed with a pointing finger which is the gun barrel.
