Just started looking at these things.  Ugly and I guess I miss a purpose.

How would one hold/shoot them?  
Are they just a spray 'n pray item for the kiddies?

I shoot a lot of handguns, for fun, target and hunting.  But if I won one, don't know what I'd do with it?

I have a couple in 300BLK, with sig-braces and red dots. They have no practical purpose, but with brake and sling, they're a kick to shoot and you can knock down a bunch of steel in a hurry. Like a shotgun with folding stock, portability and fun factor, override practicality.

As far as shooting them, it's very similar to XP type pistol, kind of awkward to start, but you get the hang of it.

I think their are a few states that you have to either use a pistol or shotgun to hunt deer. 

It might be good for that. Otherwise I think it would just be a fun plinker.

Good idea IBD. I'm sure you have something to trade.
