A pistol? MEH.

Where's the Hughes 30mm Chaingun and Hydra rocket pods???

The real scary part is this can be improved with 3D Printing Technology to make it lighter and limit the number of shots but make it more disposable.

Consider the possibility of 3D printing a Metalstorm arrangement firing Gyrojet-like rounds to keep the barrel pressure down ... that should, if possible, keep the recoil down and some smart design and programming could make it more viable.

Of course, what's really scary is a scenario I thought up as a 'press release' of background news for one of the Campaign Books in Road to Armageddon ... terrorists seizing Amazon.com and UPS/FEDEX etc. Drone Delivery facilities when they get up and running, loading the drones with tailored software *and* munitions (HE/Frag, Napalm or, if really nasty, something like Mustard Gas or even Nerve Gas) and doing a swarm attack on a nearby (for some values of 'nearby' which means 'within one way drone range') public gathering or crowded public place.

Take several such facilities in major US (and, depending on when it happens) other major world cities simultaneously ... you could probably only get away with it once, but it could be potentially devastating if you could pull it off ... mini Pearl Harbours all over the US, and all over the Globe!

The (A) scary part is that someone thought it was a good idea to stand downrange of this contraption and continue filming when a good crosswind could have shifted its line of fire.

In TW2k13, I could see one of these with a GOPRO and a wireless transmitter slaved to a laptop as a "field expedient" surveillance drone.

Looks like the Keltec .22 magnum with a magazine capacity 30 or so rounds, a good blast of turkey loads and new pistol for the group!

The FAA, the FBI and other agencies are investigating to see what laws were broken when the person did this. Can you see the implications of an assassination attempt or armed robbery?

I see your pistol and raise you with a 40mm grenade launcher drone customisable with multiple different payload packages.
Oh, and it's Australian too.
That's one for you to stat out Paul! ;)
