Has anyone purchased, shot, or seen a Witness FCP? I'm a we bit curious as a .38 special auto sounds kinda cool, not for CC but at the advertized price it might be fun?

Haven't seen one in person, but they are very weird, which compelled me to try and find out more. From what I could find, you load the rounds into those red chamber thingee's, then those get shoved in the mag. After it fires, it ejects the whole chamber thingee along with the round. The slide doesn't reciprocate. The advantage is an extremely simple design, it's almost like a revolver.
I'd love to read something from someone who actually fired one, but I'm not even sure they are available.

IIRC, the design is actually a few years old, and originated in a country where civvies aren't allowed mil-calibers or magazine feed. I may be wrong, but...
Anyhow, I've pretty much gotten away from having non-utilitarian pieces. Unless it filled some special niche for you, I wouldn't see any reason to have it.
