Well, perhaps if ALL the barrels launched their payload at the exact same time, then I'd see problems. From what I've seen though, I figured it fired one barrel at a time. I don't see the point of having them all shoot at once, except maybe for a super-powerful shotgun.

Are you talking about the purposed metal storm weapon? That about the only four barrel weapon that remotely sounds close to what your talking about.

Yes it is. It's the weapon of choice for the cyborg we are discussing. A rather... interesting... choice if you ask me.

The problem here is I see it the gun itself.

If this 4 barrel is a bullet with a gunpowder casing, then its not going to work, and onw would have to go back to the pre/post American civil war tech of multi-barrel guns of the time. If in having bullets w/casing stacked one behind the other, you fire one bullet, the bullet behind it would have to push out the casing of the bullet before it when its turn comes. Mechanically, it would not work

If this were to be some sort of Rail Gun system, then I can see it working, BUT... the amount ot power One would need to make it work would be like having large 4 car batteries strapped to one's back to power the gun! Outside of that, there is no recoil on a rail gun system; but there is an over heating issues that needs to be dealt with or else your barrel will start to warp after the second round is shot.

The metal storm concept uses caseless ammo, hence no need to push out spent casings. Still, I don't believe anyone is fielding such weapons right now. I suggest sticking with a current production semi auto.

As for rail guns, well... they do have recoil. Probably less so then a gunpowder based weapon firing the same round to the same velocity, but they've still got to make that bullet move.

I have only seen prototypes of it, using scores of barrels in a large cube. And since the weapon is electrically-activated, you'd likely need a good-size battery for power.

Looking at their site, it seems they seem to be concentrating on grenade launching weapons.

The metalstorm 4-barreled handgun shoots 4 bullets before it recoils. And no, it doesn't use gunpowder. It is some form of railgun, but it specifically surges an electrical charge that... gah, I forgot. Anyway, it is incapable of jamming, and there are no shell casings.

It would "jam" if the electronic systems failed.

Metal Storm is not a railgun. It uses electrical ignition, but chemical propellant.

Metal Storm is currently a developmental system, and Metal Storm based handguns don't seem to be the main priority right now. Stick with an existing revolver or semi auto.

Ah, thank you. I couldn't remember.

However, I believe TTIO has a specific ideal in mind, a sort of inspiration if you will, that led to the suggestion of the Metalstorm Handgun. Not just any gun will do.

Someone already posted that, didn't they?

Anyway, I was under the impression that the Metal Storm was already availible, not just a prototype. That's why I chose it. And Marksman, you are absolutely correct. In the end, I picked Metal Storm because it was an existing gun that was reasonably close to what I wanted, even if not precisely there...

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.

TTIO,
Don't let anyone discourage you too much when it comes to weapon choices. Hey, we are talking about child assassin cyborgs here... the metalstorm handgun doesn't compare!

You can have almost any weapon you want. I just like keeping real as possible.

I prefer to have it explained as minimally as possible on the first mention it comes up, and not making up patches for it along the way.

That's also a good idea. I've fallen victim to that before... it isn't pretty. Suddenly, your great diamond idea becomes a slab of molten ice.

In that case, methinks I'll stick with the Metal Storm...
