In a Small Arms gude I saw an entry for the PANCOR companies shotgun called the Jackhammer. It is like a bullpuped revolving futuristic gun. Very cool looking. The ammo was in 10 round "cassetes" that were color coded for the type of loads. Pumped once the first time and functioned like the Webly automatic revolver for the rest of the shots. When empty it automaticly ejected. You could take a fresh cassete and set it to fire like a land mine. This is cool. The guide saide it is in trials... but I never heard of it or PANCOR.

Land Mine... You step on it (Pressure plate triggers that you attach to the cassete and set it especially for this purpose) and all 10 shells go off in a very rapid succession. Mind you, this is a military shotgun design intended for warfare... despite the late Princess Diana's pleadings - all is fair in war. Even nasty little land mines. Clever.

yeah, wonder if it ever wa produced?

Another "super weapon" is the .223/12Guage combo gun that has been on Display at SHOT show for the past few years, with an operating prototype and everything. They keep saying "we'll be shipping _this_ summer!"

yeah right.
