The corner shot is impractical??? What about the gattling gun or cannon? No one said it was practical but they do have their uses.
I believe the Gatling gun and the cannon used WERE practical at the time of their manufacture and military use. This makes them historically significant.
The difference is that the Cornershot is in current production and intended for current use. It certainly works around corners, but who is going to lug one around in place of, or in addition to, his normal patrol weapon?
Do any current military or police forces employ the Cornershot? Other than the Israelis who manufacture the CS? General issue, supervisor only?
