$1800 for that chit?

And it’s a fucking .22?  Also, there’s no fucking way in hell I’m wearing a digital watch unless I’m swimming or hiking, and even then.   I also wonder how this firearm functions as a firearm?   Is it reliable, or does it jam every third round?


Didn’t a bunch of Armatix’s patents just expire?  They had all this time to develop on their patents and all they managed to create was a blocky ugly-assed .22 with a price tag that would make an HK fanboy wince?  Let’s see when they build a 9mm with Glock 17 capacity and reliability and priced in a reasonable manner, having put the technology through serious testing.  Putting this system in a .22 is one thing, but can it handle a steady long term diet of 9mm, .40 or .45, or .44 magnum, since some on the left think that this shit can just be retrofiited to all da guns.

    I’ll never get one, I want my weapons to work when I need them.

    I always wear a watch, but I finally got an Invicta self-winding job because I got sick of having my watches sit in a drawer because the batteries are dead.

    Heck, I like my Eotech sight, but it annoys me because I have to have spare batteries lying around to make it work.
    So what happens when someone’s breaking into your house and the battery’s dead? So as you try to put in the spare battery, bad guy comes up and pokes you with a stick.

      I’m not opposed to the concept per se, but they have a long way to go to prove this is viable technology in the here and now. Of course Jersey is fucked, there’s effectively a three year ban ready to drop on then, or Armatix will corner the Jersey market.

    And I do wear a watch, just ain’t gonna be a digital unless I’m feebly trying to prove I’m not a fat lazy bastard.

    I remember reading somewhere that it’s a 10% misfire rate, and they can’t use it on anything larger than a .22 because it shocks the hell out of the electronics.
