The perfect gift for the pistol-packing 'Merkin: a handgun iPhone case

'Is that an iPhone in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?'

Remote control for virtualized desktops

It is neither unkind nor inaccurate to say that for many in the land of the free and the home of the brave, their favorite bit of shiny-shiny is their handgun.

Neither is it off-base to say that there exists another large number of folks whose can't-leave-home-without-it bit of kit is their iPhone.

So what might be the must-have accessory for those who fall into both camps, who don't feel comfortable without their hand clutching their pistol grip and their Cupertinian handset?

The clever minds at Shenzhen, China's Sunsky Ltd., "Wholesalers from China", are ahead of you on that conundrum: behold the Handgun Style Plating Skinning Plastic Shell for iPhone 5 (Silver Grey).
