A new gun called "The Butt-Master" is driving police crazy because, as its name implies, it can be concealed in a very private place. Originally a novelty product made by Serbu Firearms, it has now been placed into general production. It looks like a short slender stainless-steel tube, but it fires .22 ammunition and sells for about $300. Jail guards are not too thrilled with it, but the fingerprint identification people are really unhappy.
