'[OT]: New weapon - nice!'

Hi to All

A few months ago I wanted to send some pictures to the list of a new hi-tech
weapon but I couldn't due to the large size of the pictures.

Take a look at this address:
http://movie.nameserver.co.il/cornershot/cornershot.wmv

very interesting.....

Regards

Tal

What a piece of sh*t.  In the time it takes them to cock it to 90*, the
purp could blow a hole in the wall they're standing behind.

Oh, and Edison was a moron.  Viva la Tesla!  :-P

Can't imagine if a moron forgotten to 'straighten' the gun after 'bending' it and start shooting while other friendly forces starts moving in together. "Oop ! Sorry for shoiting at your right-thigh !".

If indeed it is not suitable in certain situations to use the gun in the 90
degree mode, the operator has the choice not to use it in that mode. I am
sure most trained SWAT members would know when it would be an
advantage.  It is a tool. Like all tools, the user has to know the tool and
how to use it.  It isn't hard to think of some situation for most tools
where it won't perform well, that doesn't mean it isn't useful for the
others.  This one has the advantage that it can be quickly switched to a
more or less conventional form.

Edison may have been many things, but not a moron.

11MB is a bit much for us 56ers

Just a picture (or two) will suffice

it seems to me that it'd be too slow for general use
I mean aiming while its around the corner seems rather slow.
given your standard team of 4 can clear a room in something like .25 of a
second (if they arent paticularly quick)

I can see it having a use in larger "street fights" but thats unlikley to
happen (itd be mainly usefull for the smaller force which arent the "good
guys" right?)

Recoil must be ... odd.

It could prevent killing hostages.

I thought it a bit small for the automatic mechanism... probably a light
load for the video.

I dont think so
if i am terrorist bad guy 1 and i see this gun looking thing sticking around
the corner i'm going to blow a few holes in the wall next to the door or
i'll just squese the trigger and take out some hostages.
it seems to take a full second or 2 for them to be able to actually shoot
something
thats about 4 times too long
the bad guy has to be dead before they can think about pulling the trigger.

I would have to agree.  I would imagine recovering for a second shot is
going to be tough enough with the sighting mechanism let alone the odd
recoil that would result.

Wouldn't want to be on the ejection port side of the pistol when pointing
sideways like that either or might get a nice hot shell in the face !

Good point.
The pistol looks like a 9mm. It lacks the punch to go up against more
powerful hardware.
Clever idea though.
I will leave the experts to pass judgement on this one.

So, essentially, this thing is a pistol on a stick, right?
With a web cam.

The idea of a gun shooting around corners isn't anything new. In WWII
the US had a Sub-Machine Gun called the M3 "Grease Gun". There was a
barrel attachment that was curved at a right angle. The inside of the
angle was open, like a half barrel. The Germans had a similar attachment
for there MG-42 machinegun.

I read an article about those sort of attachments in Small Arms Review.
The pictures of the slugs that came from the barrel attachments were all
mangled, so it isn't very accurate but they still would "do the job".

Can't say that I had heard of this one, but there were several guns with
"periscope" like sighting systems. Some going back to the first world war.

And several modern designs that put a camera on the gun and a wearable
monitor.

Btw, a link to an 11MB video file without other info was probably not the
best way to share this.
