    Hmm. It uses blanks (says their website) to propel the projectile.

    And it’s obviously not muzzle-loading, from watching. (With sound off, since at work.)

    Seems like this is an SBR, and maybe a DD, then?

    (Because it fires a projectile from expansion of exploding gunpowder, and is not a muzzle-loader.

    And because projectile diameter over .500″ and barrel length is patently under 16″, at a glance.)

    I’d guess they could probably get an exemption letter, since it’s plainly useless for mayhem, though…

    The audio on the video says “…..ported barrel that’s capped on the end…..” and the barrel has large visible ports in the sides. So, if the barrel is closed at the end, that prevents a case-mounted projectile from leaving the gun. Although, a 12 ounce soda/beer weighs about 5500 grains, and assuming a velocity of 250 FPS, that’s about 765 ft/lbs of energy, which might smart a bit. It would make a pretty good bean bag launcher.

    It is a muzzle loader, since the projectile is loaded from the front.

    A blank round and a separate projectile does not count as fixed ammunition.

  4. Kristophr Says:

    And exactly how does a muzzleloader fire a projectile, sigivald. I’ll bet it has something to do with exploding gunpowder.

    The current BATFE definition of a firearm is something that uses completely fixed ammunition ( cap, charge, and projectile ) in a breachloaded cartridge.

    I shall find a legitimate use for this can cannon. As God as my witness, it shall be thus.

    Kristopher: Ah, you’re right.

    I was thinking of the CHARGE loading determining “muzzle-loader”, but yes, you’re plainly correct.

    Serious fireworks launcher, too.

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
