Too small for my tastes but some of you might think it's neat :)

I held one of those at a gun show.

Massive, beast. Heavy as heck, but not heavy enough for me to want to shoot.

Does it come with an ankle holster?

Nuts. It looks like it's a single shot. :rolleyes:

Finally, I have found my new back-up gun. :D

That thing's about as useful as a kickstand on a tank.

It ain't often I see a gun that I don't have at least a vague desire to buy... ;)

I've seen one of those as well - almost certainly the same one cordex did. I'm still not sure if it's functional or just a joke...

I'd have to say it's a joke. Why else would Security Arms credit Birdman Weapon Systems (http://www.birdman.org/) for the photo?

That should make me popular around town.

"Sir is that a gun in your pocket or are you just really, really, really, glad to see me?"

Because it's a real, honest-to-Shiva gun that is owned by the guy who runs the Birdman Weapons System gag site. :eek:

Whoever makes that thing has to be getting kickbacks from orthopedic surgeons.

I, too, have seen that gun. Was at one of the Indy 1500 gunshows about a year or so ago. (If it helps, Ian, me, and a couple other people from the Purdue Contingent were all at the show together.)
Was cool, but I can't say as I'd have a use for it.

'cept maybe as a bar-b-q. Just hang a bunch of hotdogs to either side of the muzzle brake, touch off a round, and voila- hotdog flambe.:)

No need to worry about the "punch" you'd lose by having such a short barrel. :neener:

Nope. Not small enough.

I have shot a 50 BMG pistol.Muzzle break was designed very well and the gun came back app 6 inches and the barrel did not come up at all.It had a leapold scope(4 power) on it.Was a blast to shoot but of no practical use at all.

I have to wonder what sort of muzzle velocity you get out of that (relatively) short barrel?

And just how big is the muzzle flash? With all that un-burnt powder igniting just past the muzzle, it should be enormous.

Mmmm...I'm trying to find the link but I seem to remember a .50 BMG 16" carbine in one of the gun rags awhile back. They had a high speed series of camera shots of it firing and it seemed down right nasty in muzzle recoil. For some reason I recall the name of the rifle was the 'Charging Rhino' or something like that.

I can tell the first pin is to set off the explosive charge but what is the 2nd grenade pin for?
