I Have Got To Get Me One Of These !

I happened to run across an article on this beaut over at The Blaze. There was no doubt that I just had to bring this back to the dog pound, so y’all can yelp and howl watching the video. This thing is just too cool for words, a serious schhhwiiinnnng producer.

Once you’re done schwiiiinnnngggg let’s just call it a Mid-Week Open Thread.

-Carry On

[P.S. Pray for our neighbors in the mid-west, getting hammered with severe weather and tornadoes. What I’m watching is horrific-JB.]

‘Think I’ll wait for the folding stock version, JB.

That looks like it would fit into a MK42 5″ gun mount. And this version is finally up to combat power levels. once the bugs are worked out of the free electron laser, those being get it to run at the megawatt level and small enough to put on a ship, things really change. Consider a nuclear powered destroyer with… Read more »

Been watching the development of this little puppy for some time now – the biggest problem (well, TWO of them) was the recycle time of the gun’s electrical charge, and the friction of the sabot as it travels down the rails. Without getting into the physics, a rapid-fire version would waste anything on the horizon, and since the bullet is… Read more »

Open thread….

Act of Valor? Anyone else seen it? Thoughts? I enjoyed it, specially the SWCC’s putting the out the suppressive fire.

My only criticism of that fantastic electromagnetic squirrel rifle is that there is no lanyard to pull. Pressing a button just isn’t the same. LC TerribleTroy @ #10: I saw it last Saturday. Excellent flick. It was the first time I heard a vulcan cannon in a movie actually sound like a vulcan cannon. I also appreciated the sheer volume… Read more »

Probably because that the first time a Vulcan in a movie used REAL AMMO! :em01:

LC TerribleTroy @ #: The quick summary: Worth it. There are a few valid criticisms, but they are easily ignored when you realizing that the men on the camera aren’t actors pretending to be SEALs. I noticed that when it was over and the credits were rolling, the audience was absolutely quiet. And dammit, I want to be the Senior… Read more »

Well, as long as we’re talkin’ machines & it’s an open thread ‘n all… …may I introduce to you – Excelsior. A 2012 Hyundai Genesis coupe. 2.0 turbo four-banger. Not the fastest in the world, but it’s the fastest I’ve ever owned – and it’ll keep up with a V8 or two. Needless to say, not all the lead in… Read more »

Too bad you can’t just stick Odumbass in one of those. And that thing makes one helluva noise for something that uses no “explosives” to propel the projectile downrange.

Fodder, when you are pushing an amount of air out of the way at hypersonic speeds, you’re gonna get some noise. Sound is, after all, compression and rarefaction waves, y’know…

Odumbo wouldn’t go anywhere – vacuum is not magnetic. Nothing for the EM fields to work on…

I took my son to see the film. And it was quiet in the end . The lad didn’t care for the ending. He also said it wasn’t “like” a action movie. I had to ponder that a bit before I realized that unlike the regular movies the actors weren’t busy “emoting”. They were professionals doing a job in a… Read more »

Beth and I went to see Act of Valor last Friday on the opening day; there were only 8 people in the whole theater.

We both thought it was a fantastic homage to our troops and plan to see it again before it closes.

When I heard that Vulcan go off, I had a “moist towelette” moment .

“Velocitas eradico?” Is that Dog Latin in the Harry Potter style?

It might be, more likely it is proper latin for “Speed Destroys” :em01:
