    :cool: idea, but i don't know that i'd trust it for a primary weapon. i'd still want someone covering me with something mechanical with a firing pin and a hammer.

    cool concept. though like kellyclan said, i too wouldn't want it as a primary weapon. just think of all the malfunctions it'll have. shit like overheating will definitely be a problem.

    So what then when you expend all the rounds? three tubular like mags or what?

    Nice concept, but I don't really see it's uses other than to blow up a lot of stuff. Can this gun be used to disable vehicles?

    What happens when you run out of ammo in a gun fight? How do you reload that thing?

    I've known about that thing for a while, it's a POS in my mind. I hate electronics.

    I only hate firearms that are required to have a constant supply of energy. Unless it's a plasma pistol or something (I can dream right? :hs: ) I would rather stick to good ol' gunpowder.

    They say, "the barrel is the weapon". Then they throw the barrels away after the rounds are fired, i have to wonder how good the barrels are.

    I can see how it'd be great for close-in missle defense, the successor to Phalanx, but I can't imagine ever having sometihng like that as a primary weapon.

    When you think about it, all it really is is a portable claymore, amirit?

    If the zombies invade, I'm going to make a suit of armor with those strapped to my chest and back.

    I'll be an unstoppable killing machine. :eek3:

    what gets me is that each successive bullet is being fired out of a longer barrel, that would do hell on ballistics. either the later bullets catch up, or they are they get farther apart.


    i'm thinking it's not quite the long range weapon either, so it doesn't matter too much
