I am very impressed with how much better metalstorm weapons are when
to cyclic mechanism weapons. These guns should be lighter, far more lethal
more reliable than the current generation of weapons - possibly cheaper too.
As such I wonder if any american citizens would consider buying these
whatever reason americans buy these
for any other reason than mass-hysteria,
but you cant argue cultural preferances I suppose.
Is the reason that americans buy firearms and shotguns and pistols because
become culturally fixed archetypical shapes? Would a metalstorm gun be
legal? Can a mom&pop business spring up making these things (and ammo
in a small shop, and sue the government to be allowed to sell them? I mean -
rifle looks easier to build than a
How would a society where people buy metalstorm rifles and handguns be
the one you are in today. How lethal would these things evolve? (I think
*very* lethal) -
how can metalstorm rifles be "hacked" for rate of fire, ammo lethality. Can
be installed on homebred robotics easily?
Anyone has a take on this?
