    New Plastic Gun ... hard to detect

    The gun design is supposedly available on the web. The fox article gives a few pictures and a video to watch. The guy only shoots one round - holds together.

    The other site has more information, a forum, discussion.

    Will have to look at the legality of this. Given it is made of plastic - I would have to think size - reduced - would be the goal.

    Questions...

    I believe the gun is a single shot design, accounting for the one shot fired. I would guess that the critical factor in the design would be a plastic barrel that is sturdy enough to hold up under the heat and pressure of the cartridge being fired. The wall thickness of a plastic barrel would have to be significantly more than the thickness of a steel barrel to contain the roughly 20,000 psi of a handgun round. I also wonder how many rounds would be possible before cracks began to form in the barrel, leading to failure. I wonder if the barrel is rifled?
