Walther P22
The semiautomatic was designed with a threaded barrel, making it way too easy to attach silencers, which are illegal in Chicago.

Hi-Point
All models from this Dayton, Ohio–based manufacturer are outlawed because the city believes the company’s value-priced firearms cater to criminals.

ARES Defense Systems Company Flashlight Gun
Are you afraid of the dark? This Maglite look-alike operates like a flashlight, but the handle end fires a .410-gauge shotgun round. ARES has discontinued production, but these covert weapons remain in circulation.

Stinger Pen Gun
In the case of this single-shot pistol the size of a BIC ballpoint, the pen truly is mightier than the sword.

G.R.A.D. RS1 Knife Gun
Ever heard the saying “Don’t bring a knife to a gun fight”? This hybrid .22-caliber revolver hidden in the handle of a knife makes bringing both frighteningly convenient.

Bond Arms Cowboy Defender
This pocket-size pistol may have a kickass name, but it doesn’t have a trigger guard, which the city requires.
