See this Russian T90 Tank Fire a 125mm shell at 18,000 fps, captured on a Photron camera:

Oh what I wouldn’t give for a slow-motion camera like that. Even something as simple as water dripping out of a tap looks amazing at 18000 fps.

When he’s not too busy connecting people across the universe, Mark Zuckerberg is pursuing a new “personal challenge,” as he calls it. “The only meat I’m eating is from animals I’ve killed myself,” says the Facebook founder and CEO.

The article is definitely worth the read. An interesting challenge for a multi-billionaire to take on.

I’d be interested to see how long he follows through with it.  If he actually gets into hunting, can you imagine the gun collection he could afford?!

The Downsizer Corp in Santee, CA made and delivered a handful of its WSP models for a few years before SB15 became law and production stopped for good. I believe fewer than 100 pistols were delivered up to that point. Whatever the exact number was, it was’t very large.

The WSP model received lots of positive reviews after they were introduced at the SHOT Show (1998, I think). There is a very detailed article by Robert Hausman in HANDGUNS 2001.

Specifications Model WSP (World’s Smallest Pistol)
Calibers 45 ACP, 357 Magnum (Also fires 38 Special), 9mm & 40 S&W
Capacity Single Shot
Trigger Double action only
Action Tip up barrel, push button release
Materials Stainless steel, CNC machined
Sights None, smooth snag free top
Safety Internal firing pin block
Overall Length 3.25″ (Smaller than a playing card)
Barrel Length 2.10″
Height 2.25″ (Smaller than a playing card)
Thickness 0.90″
Weight 11 oz.

Wow that’s awesome.  It would definitely make a very versatile pocket gun.
