Hehe it would be cute to have that pop up in Worms when you ask for the minigun.

Too bad that until we get those 300 dpi monitors, we'd be looking quizzically at a single grey pixel.

Haha, awesome! I'd give that to my neighbour to kill mosquitos with (she got West Nile a couple years back).

Wouldn't it be awesome if someone made a mini minigun?

I wonder what kind of power that packs. It looks like you could do more damage with a jab from a ball-point pen.

From the website - each bullet carries 1.0888 J of kinetic energy, that's about as much as an apple dropped from 1 metre.

Of course, an apple dropped from 1 metre wouldn't be travelling at 130 m/s...

For reference, a standard .177 pellet for an air gun usually weighs in around 8-10 grains and the cheap ones fire around 300 FPS. This gun fires a round that weighs in around 2 grains at 426 FPS.

It can definitely put an eye out, but not much more.

All that mathematical mumbo-jumbo is all well and good, but it's worthless when the trigger's so tiny a finger won't fit around it to fire the darn thing! [crazy]

It may be too tiny for people to fire, but if evil squirrels got their hands on them, we could be in for serious trouble.

And that's when you take the pencil out from behind your ear (or perhaps from the back of one's hair?) and use it to pull the trigger. [Razz]

See the outcurving hook on the bottom of the trigger? Methinks that's an extension of the trigger itself to make it easier to fire. (Do bigger gun nuts than I want to back me up on this one?)

I'm no gun enthusiast, but it looks like the whole trigger guard has been made into part of the trigger. They have some kind of keychain case for it shown in their gallery, but I would hope that anyone using that would have the sense to keep it unloaded.

Hmm, so this means that I have to drive up to La Chaux-de-Fonds and see about getting one.

No prices on the site, but I will have to make a few , discrete, inquiries.

evil squirrels? That implies there are nice squirrels, which I can assure you, there are not.
