Here is something you don't see everyday . . .

What an interesting rifle. I think its a very neat concept but from what I remember hearing and reading, it did not work very well at all. From what I gather the round is kind of like a rocket bullet. Maybe it would have done better if it was explosive, but then I don't think you would want the hammer smacking it in the nose.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

what a joke! if that rifle looked at a Hipoint pistol, they would both throw up on each other.
