This is one transformer that would produce a transformative experience (even if unloaded!). Probably better protection than a dog, too.

And like all automatic weapons, only the good guys will have them.

What a wack-job!

Close down the meth labs would help.

Would that be legal in California under Roberti Roos? Its pretty cool, but as the guy said, they have no plans to produce such a thing. Actually, I don't even think thats very practical for carry. Instead of just drawing and firing, you'd have to unfold it with 2 hands, then bring it up to your shoulder, then fire. Seems like a lot of steps to me. Thanks for bringing it to our attention, though.

By the way, Just Thinking, its not automatic. He said it could be modified to accept and "Auto sear" which would make it automatic, but the one he had was semi-automatic (requiring a trigger pull for each shot.) I'm not volunteering to get shot even once, but I did want to correct this techincal error.
