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.

Most electronics is almost completely resistant to it, and this stuff, designed for the military, would absolutely be able to ignore any EMP.
