I recently bought an electric toothbrush with a non-rechargeable, non replaceable battery from Oral-B. The manufacturer offers it as the ultimate in convenience, stating that the brush and battery will stop working effectively at about the same time. I think the same thing will happen with self-defense firearms. New polymers and new casings will result in inexpensive, disposable, non-reloadable handguns. Much like pepper spray containers, millions will be sold that will never be used but be kept in glove boxes, ladies purses, etc. Meant for close-in protection, only moderate accuracy will be needed. I'm not sure what form these disposable guns will take, semi-auto or revolver, but I will be surprised if we don't actually see this type of general use handgun.

Yuck... not a world I want to live in. Sounds like a waste of materials to me.
