Skip to comments.The Flashlight Machine Gun, Could be a Game Changer (Video)
Posted on 06/27/2011 9:29:56 AM PDT by OneVike
In this video, a gentleman from Magpul Industries introduces their concept weapon the FMG-9. As I watched the video, I was struck by the thought that we have the police, in high crime areas, having trouble distinguishing the difference between MP3 players and guns. Not to mention the growing debate about TSA workers frisking granny and her 2 year old grandson because they may be carrying a bombs. Now we have something new thrown into the mix. The item I write about is a machine gun that's so unique it can be disguised as a flashlight and slipped into your back pocket.
The Folding Machine Gun 9 (FMG-9) Is normally concealed as a harmless flashlight, but at the touch of a button you can flip it out to a fully functional sub-machine gun. If you decide the coast is clear, and you can just then just flip it back into a flashlight mode, and slip the innocent looking gadget into your back pocket.
Personally I'm still trying figure out when this type of weapon would come in handy. Maybe you could use it in a Homeowner's Association argument about brown spots in the lawn, or the placement of your cans on garbage day. Then again there are always those pesky neighbors who are complaining about your car bringing down the property values because it isn't new enough.
Truth is, the best use of this type of weapon would be for those of you who live Obama's old neighborhood. Now that you don't have your community agitator keeping the local scum busy by protesting the local businesses, you could always use the FMG to keep the thugs at a distance as you walk home from the local market. Not that it would make much of a difference during a random drive- by. After all, by the time you pulled it from you back pocket and unfolded it, you would probably have a few rounds in you. Even if you even had a chance to return fire the car would have sped around the corner out of site. Don't worry though, because by January 2013 you'll have your community organizer back, and he'll have those pesky thugs busy harassing the evil business owners again instead of you.
All joking aside, anyone who thinks this is just another reason to scrap the 2nd amendment, this gun is not being produced. Even if it were, Magpul doesn't sell it's restricted products to the general public, and the FMG-9 would be an example of a restricted product. This sort of gun is designed and marketed to private security contractors, military, and other governmental institutions whose operators require firepower in a concealable package, think Uzi in a briefcase and you have the right idea.
As for the possibility that mercenaries, drug dealers, or assassins would happen to use any weapons produced by Magpul, or any other weapon manufacturer is completely irrelevant to the equation. So you anti American, and anti 2nd Amendment types can calm down. Besides, even if this weapon was put into production and somehow ended up in the wrong hands, we now know it would probably have been done by the ATF (Project Gunwalker) under Obama watch as CBS reported back in February.
you would like to watch the video of the flashlight machine gun, there is no need to visit my site. However if you wish to give my site a hit, it would be much appreciated.)
Whose back pocket would that slip into?
This is a video that was forwarded to me by a friend. I did some research and wrote something up top accompany the video. It's pretty cool, and as you consider the many uses for such an item, you will no doubt find yourself entertained by the while concept of a Flashlight Machine Gun.... At least I did, and that is why I wanted to share it with you...............
First posted about in February, 2008, a very cool gun.
Looks like that toy gun/radio combo, as seen on TV’s “Man from U.N.C.L.E.”, they used to sell in the late 60s. Except you get no radio.
Wonder how accurate it is. Looks like a spray n’ pray gun.
Yes, but with no video, and without my humorous take.
I remember it. Fact is I tried to find a youtube video to put alongside it for comparison. Unfortunately, the only video i could find was pulled by youtube for copywrite violations.
I want one...
Great, now we’ll have SWAT busting down doors to shoot 9 year olds for possession of a pen light because it ‘might be a gun’. You know, because they made one gun look like a flashlight, now all flashlights are possible guns.
Ok, that makes more sense. Very small, would be handy to have in a bug out kit.
Magpul only makes the conversion case.The pistol is a Glock 19 if I’m correct.
It’s not a conversion, they use parts of the Glock, but not a conversion in that you put the Glock in a pre-made shell.
