    Those of you who have read my novel Scales will recall a certain weapon called the P.A.W. (Personal Assault Weapon) featuring in the climax of the book. I didn't invennt it: it does exist (although still in the development stage) and I have put together a brief article about it on my website, here: http://www.quarry.nildram.co.uk/PAW.htm

    Is it safe to assume they won't be for civilians?

    Just looking at the design, as it is, other than the caliber it would be CA-compliant. Amusing.

    Is that caliber legal anywhere in the US? I though anything over .50 was a destructive device, and that's something like .75 if I'm not mistaken.
    Have you had the pleasure of firing one, Tony?

    ::EDIT:: I took a minute to do some conversions, correct me if I'm wrong-
    Caliber: .787x1.65 inches, the bullet itself is 110 grains (i sure hope it isn't 110 GRAMS[turns out it is, thats 1163 grains...wow]) and Two and a half inches long! (2.48)
    That's a tank of a bullet, twice the size of the casing, and traveling at about 1k ft/second.

    Color me impressed

    Uhhh......yeah. The round is 110 GRAMS, not grains. A 7.62x39mm bullet weighs 123grains. You're saying a small 7.62mm weighs more than a huge 20mm? :neener: :D

    20mm in the US would require paying extortion, err, I mean tax... if your state allowed it.

    Wow...that's cool! Does take non-lefty-friendly to a whole new level, though. :)

    After Ron Paul gets elected and dismantles F-Troop, I'm definitely getting one. :evil:

    According to the designer, it can be fired easily from the left shoulder - but you still use your right hand on the trigger.

    My shotgun is like .63 or something? And people have 54 and 63 and even bigger muzzleloaders.

    There are regulatory exceptions for "sporting purpose" shotguns. Shotguns that the ATFE decides don't have a sporting purpose (i.e. the USAS and the Streetsweeper) get classified as destructive devices.

    Muzzleloaders aren't regulated under these provisions on the federal level.
