This is the Lund Variable Velocity Weapons System, a combustion-powered rifle that can both kill or stun an enemy. It was developed by the creators of Honey My Baby Pony and Tickle Me Elmo dolls for the Pentagon. No kidding.
Lunda company specialized in creating toysstarted to work with the Pentagon under the Small Business Innovation Research funds, following the military's objective to develop a non-lethal weapons arsenal.
To achieve its double-function, the LVVWS works at two different speeds. By clicking a switch, the weapon goes from one mode to the other. To make is safer, it also has an automatic range-finder detector that will automatically vary the speed depending on the distance to the target. [Danger Room]
Seriously, very interesting tech.
The IRS will be ordering 16,000 of these immediately.
Rule 1: Never bring a knife to a gun fight.
Rule 2: Never bring an LVVS to a gun fight.
Must have read that someplace......
A fancified spud gun, launching a smaller projectile.
Good Lord...what have they done to my Army? So many things could be said, but I think I'll just go out to the garage and reload some more ammo.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
