    As conventional "wisdom" would have it: It's not at least XYZ caliber, so it's inherently worthless and only the sort of thing a yellow, mindless automaton would consider.

    Enjoyed it. Thanks.

    1.4gr, eh? I wonder where the half of a grain gets positioned ... broken-end up, or down? Would it make the difference in power? What's the stopping power of such a gun? Would it stop a flea? What about a seriously upset flea bent on family destruction? Glad to see they're testing it. After 122K rounds, it ought to be ready to go.

    Mount the new little 180acp on your key chain and while stating your car shoot yourself in knee or worse spot, may not be very powerful but at very close range could slow or stop love life for a while.

    There were no fatalities at point blank range, or bleeding, or... bone fractures, however, there was clear evidence of agitation and aggravation which may have led to ulcers and a possible need for surgery further down the line. By then, under a new federally managed national health care program, surely they would all die.

    no need. The NAA mini revolvers are smaller then that.

    North American Arms

    and yes that revolver is real
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Yes, but can the NAA match: "during sustained fire from behind a barricade, while riding on horseback and at the apex arc of a tire swing, the gun performed ...admirably, producing ˝" MOA six shot groups at 100 yards."? (my personal favorite line).

    Why couldn't they make it in the plain old .22 long rifle?
