World's Coolest Gun

I figured quite a few of you may already have seen it, and I can count at least 6 people that will say they want one:
Metal Storm.

And Jag ought to love this -- the inventor is from Brisbane. There are gun-nuts in his neck of the woods.

I think this has been on here before -- you pack a whole bunch of bullets in the barrel, separated by powder, then elecronically fire them. A bitch to reload and the barrels don't last.

But with that name, I keep wondering how Jaryd Syn fits into it...

Yee haw ... is that solely an art piece or does it really fire? And using which feed system? since there are no breaks in the wheel it has to work as a revolver, but why is there a mag in place in the grip ... just for ammo storage?

Looking at it makes my head hurt in the same way as looking at one of the new Beetles ... it just ain't right!

Perhaps this is something that should have been in the Photoshop Forum?

I think it's art.

I think your right. I'll go punish myself. At least part of myself, while gazing lovingly at that picture.

Well, that other monstrosity was photoshopped, but CDNN has been trying to unload these for quite a while.

That link fucked my computer UP. I was starting to think I wasn't going to get it back.

I'll not be clicking anymore of Dude's links. If ain't some fucking racist, white supremacist bullshit, it's killing my fuckng 'puter. Not anymore.
