    I saw this before when it actually debuted - I believe, on that show on the Discovery Channel hosted by the ex-SEAL. These things look MEEEEAAAAN. I can't imagine having to face a radar-guided variant of that in a jet. ::cringe:: The main problem I would be concerned with about having to actually shoot someone with that thing would be over-penetration and possibly spattering BG all over myself. And we all know that the stank of a murderer/rapist/pillaging @$$hole just doesn't come out of certain materials.

    I think we had another thread John not so long ago about this beast.

    Certainly impressive but not sure about use for carry!

    Tough to carry reloads when you have to carry the whole barrel assembly.

    Has applications in vehicle-mounted weaponry, but I'm not so sure about personal weapons.

    There is one version being developed that looks similar to the old pepperbox style revolvers. It is the one shown at the beginning of the video.

    It has 4 barrels, the rounds are loaded on top of each other in each barrel. Then each round is fired electrically. I think ??? each barrel holds something like 10 rounds for a total of 40.???

    That version could be carried without to many issues.

    I like the concept, but contrary to the manufacturers comments, I forsee it being no more reliable than a well designed conventional weapon.

    First of all, it must have a rather sophisticated series of electrical contacts in the barrel, which will be subjected to the extreme temperatures, and stress of a firing chamber. This also means that the barrels will be expensive to produce.
    It requires a battery of some sort, and it has some sort of processor, and firing circuit. All of which will be subjected to harsh vibrations. If it is built in such a way as to be easily serviced it will be vulnerable to immersion in water, and will be difficult to reload. Granted it gives you 40 rounds of fire, which would be nice, but how much range time can you afford with it? On a positive note, the trigger could be setup for about any feel desireable, as it will only be making an electrical connection.

    In short I see it as an expensive toy for now.

    Military applications are another story however.

    Chris... I did a search on the forum on it, but didnt see anything, so that is why I passed it along. Now..... is it for real?? Myself, just listening to the amount of rounds it would fire in one second, etc., I thought myself it is a SPOOF?? I did see the Discovery Channel logo at the bottom, but anyone can add that I am sure. Dunno, I am not convinced. But heck, who knows what some "Brain" has come up with nowadays, ha. I dont think I could afford the one second burst of ammo out of it.
