Very interesting. I think this technology would be more effective if there was some kind of electronic magazine system feeding ammo into the chamber though. Stacking the rounds like that may prevent jams and make for a lighter firearm, but reloading would be a bitch and it would indeed cause accuracy problems at long range. Also, a handgun on three round burst would expend it`s ammo very quickly as someone else stated.

This reminds me of electronic paintball guns which use a solinoid controled by a computer board as opposed to the older blowback mechanical design. Now real guns are going from blowback to electronic as well. XD

Wouldn`t you love to come stumbling upon one of these one day? You leave your village to go to the watewr well 5 miles away, you walk over the top of a sanddune and you see a big mechanical thing beep, and then whirl around and look at you, these are the last things youu`ll ever see.

No. EMPs are only effective against a very select number of items. Most electronics is almost completely resistant to it, and this stuff, designed for the military, would absolutely be able to ignore any EMP.

First off guns are not bad!Why are you so afraid of having the ability to protect yourself? Whatwill you do when some junkiee hoped up on -insert drug of choice- breaks into your house? Talk nicely? Ultimate force equals ultimate protection.

Otherwise, we`ll just have to continue relying on Israel to maintain our peace-keeping mission over there; you know, upholding our reputation, putting in a good word for that Jesus fellow of ours... God, the Middle-East Sucks!

The most powerful weapons, need I remind you misguided philanthroists, usually make for the greates of peacekeepers. Hence the Cold-War, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and those nukes we definitely need to remind North Korea we have. Nobody wants to take the rest of the world and their own people with them except the fu(king towl-headed extremists (more dangerous than Christian Fundamentalists, mortality studies show), who are so warped by their leaders, their media and their "religion" (really all 3 branches of the same thing) that some of them think they can actually stand up to us? Ha. I wish the war was about oil, then maybe gas would be closer to what it is in Israel, thanks to the pipeline being built conveniently to it`s doorstep. Maybe if we USED the biggest weapons we have somewhere, they would get the message.

tatervent, it`s not a rail gun. A rail gun uses magnets to pull the projectile along the barrel. This uses an electronic charge to ignite the propellant, than then sends the bullet down the barrel.

So, batteries.

I don`t see why people get in such a fuss about guns. "Oh Jaysus, yet another way of killing someone."

If someone wants to kill someone all they have to do is pick up a rock and bash their brains in. Guns just make it easier. The desire to kill rests with the killer, not the weapon.

Great inviention though, lets say our troops are going to be attacked by a group of enemeys much larger... but they know where they are coming from... plop these things up and press on and walk away... no dead americans! yay!

TiredofNicks, the bullets are "compressed" before fired. This allows more ammo. When the bullet it fired before it, the bullet decompresses, and is now ready to fire.
I`m not sure exactly, but I reead something like that in one of my magazines.

I love future weapons, this was on the same episode as the 50cal sniper rifle that split a guy in half.

Someone should put up the Directed Energy eppisode with the directed sound speaker, that was the poo. They found a way to make sound travel on a specific path instead of the sound waves going anywhere.

I think some of the metal storm weapons are in use in Iraq, the hand guns the only real part you keep is the trigger, the barrel you can throw away, just like clips in previous military issue hand guns.

Tiredofnicks, I recomend you watch this over again because they explained everything you argued about in that. Plus I`m sure the military has solved those problems, seeing as how some are actually in the hand of some select military personel.

How is this possible? The handgun diagram shows the bullets stacked nose to tail so I`m guessing they`re using caseless ammunition, but at those rates of fire the residue of the expendable case would clog up the barrel in notime. Being stacked as they are they would also leave the barrel at different velocities, making it difficult to aim a burst onto a single target beyond a certain range. Reloading it must be a b!tch as well, I can`t see how this could be anything but a muzzle-loader if it`s going to be a reusable gun. The alternative would be to carry spare barrels with you and replace them, either tossing the old ones or saving them to be reloaded later.

"These are being designed primarily for military use."
As were the snaplock musket, the automatic pistol and the sub-machine gun, all of which found their way into the hands of the general populace.

To make things clear here, I`m a pacifist, but I do like to solve engineering and design problems.

Nothing makes me write someone off with more speed than one who wastes their time saying such intelligent and world-changing phrases as "just what we need more guns" and "GO AMERICA "Killing people scence 1774"".

...oh and Beternal; thanks for the giggle. That`s why I come here. At least someone`s got it right.

At a burst fire rate (3 bullets) the 9 mm metal storm hand gun (whatever the hell it is called). Sounds fantastic, 3 bullets through the chest will leave a gaping hole in you.

OR

Think about this:

The plating on our kevlar armor is made out of ceramic plates first, then kevlar, after about two rounds to the same general area it fails, if you can nail three shots simutaneously against an area, it effectively makes kevlar obsolete.

The handgun seems powerful, but you`ll run out of ammo in no time. :/
Other then that it seems like a brilliant weapon, but as someone mentioned, not suited for home defense (way too deadly - not that you neescessarily should have guns for this in the first place)

They could have eased up a bit on the "sacry voice" sound :P
