Russian criminals will sooner kill ya than write ya

MADRID (Reuters) - Spanish police have arrested a Russian woman carrying 38 "pen guns" capable of firing .22 caliber bullets, saying she was part of a Russian-Kosovan gun-smuggling ring.

The KGB has in the past produced and used pens and similar objects to assasinate their targets. Usually used to spray gas in the faces of their victims which would then induce heart attack like symptoms.

.22 caliber bullets seem quite a bit messier. Then again, I suppose these "guns" are used in non-covert operations.
