I reckon that would evade security in most places also. Especially if the outer casing is also metal.

Such a cool idea. I love how quickly it deploys

You know, I was just walking the dog the other night, when I thought to myself - boy I sure could use an automatic weapon that looks like a bigass flashlight! It's like these guys read my mind!

As it was flipping open, the first thing I thought was how intimidating it would be for the whole thing to just jerk out of his hand, keep on spinning, and land at the feet of the mugger. Ooopsie.

(Wasn't there a TV or movie spy where this sort of stuff kept happening to him? Anytime he used a complicated weapon/spy-toy it would screw-up on him?)

I'll be honest, I don't particularly think this is a practical idea, which is why I'm sure Magpul has no intentions of bringing it to fruition. First off, they mention it's a machine gun, which would seem to indicate that it's potentially automatic. Secondly, it's a very SMALL firearm that likely uses pistol rounds (especially since it utilizes Glock standard mags) -- there's no way the average dog-walking-Joe is going to be able to pack this thing legally.

I, personally, would much rather walk my dog with a Kel-Tec P11. It's a very small pistol that packs 10+1 9mm rounds into a package that's probably not much smaller than a frigging iPod Classic. I'm serious, the thing is f**king small. I'm planning on picking one up, along with a Walther P22 and a Glock 22 later on.

Oh, hey, and Tam? There aren't enough gun-obsessed Americans out there. I find it ironic and disturbing how my more liberal-minded countrymen can point out the USA PATRIOT Act and the Military Commissions Act of 2007 as the dangerous transgressions on our civil liberties that they truly are, but be very willing to give up the only civil liberty we have that guarantees the rest of them (namely, the right to bear arms).
