I want one of these
Is there like a legal limit on the size of shotgun bore?
I can say what the legal limit should be
20mm and above is usually considered cannon, however since 12ga > 50cal shotguns already have a DD exemption, so I dunno
with the size of that thing it looks like it could function as a makeshift anti-aircraft gun
The strongest one can hold without shattering their forearms
Disregard the hinge thing (the inventor just wanted to show that it can be made into a top-break as well as side-swing revolver, so he implemented both in a prototype)
What if I made a shotgun pepperbox/volley gun?
Same basic effect but legal?
How long before the US Space Force gets bolters
You can get any size you want, legally
This russian revolver is 12.7mm, but it comes with a buttstock, so it would not murder the hands
DDs can still be registered
If I recall, the DD designation comes from how fast you can fire right?
a bolter would rip your arm straight off, so extreme genetic engineering would be first
bolter rounds are roughly the size of a water bottle
Comes from bore size OR explosive charge
Is there a specific number for that?
IE, rifle above .50cal is a DD
Or does it vary by state?
But a .30cal could be a DD if it's explosive tipped above a certain amount
Don't know the amount, sorry
AFAIK US inherited the british gun sizing, then evolved it a bit, and then adopted metric alongside the old designations...
It is a bit of a mess
But bore cutoff is >12.7mm
I mean, trying to name the different calibers are like naming pokemon at this point
Barring C&R exemptions and shotguns
Actually, get in voice
can you hear me?
I can't hear you
aye aye captain
Mind the bad ping
The Canadian meme bullpup is just an early prototype, and not man fireable for safety reasons I'd imagine.
