I imagine this would work pretty well at close range. I wonder if the cartridges can be loaded into the magazine where the staples used to go? Having it feed semi-automatically would be impressive.
Unfortunately it looks pretty dangerous. It’s probably good that the maker of this didn’t have the “go big or go home” mentality and make a .50 BMG one.
At the age of 88 Ria van Dijk still makes her pilgrimage to the Shooting Gallery. She has been going every year since she was 16 (except from 1939 – 1945) presumably because of WWII. The Camera is triggered by her hitting a target.

Neat idea. It’s interesting to see how she aged, how the style of clothing changed, and how the photographs went from black and white to color.

Maybe i’m getting old, but even playing Bond on the Wii (where the screen is always jerking around when you move your hand slightly) made me nauseous. I’ll probably puke for sure when playing something similar like this in 3D.
The video is done for 3D stereoscopic glasses (red blue). The final game will likely use the more expensive type of glasses that come with 3D TVs. Which reminds me, I haven’t had a pair of those red/blue glasses since I quit buying comic books and cereal.
The end of this years machine gun shoot at Knob Creek (October 10th, 2010):
From the description:
This event is the culmination of THE BEST GUN SHOW you could ever attend. You are viewing the first 6 1/2 minutes of the Knob Creek Machine Gun Night Shoot. Fully automatic weapons including the most modern M16 variations, AK47, .50 BMG, minigun, and classics from every major military conflict of the past century. Plus a few flares! Targets included propane tanks, automobiles, appliances, and large drums of fuel. This “outburst” ran for about 10 minutes, but the intensity had pretty much subsided at the 7 minute mark. Several shooters either did not reload, and/or they were no longer shooting tracers and incendiary ammo. The main range where the video was filmed is approximately 350-400 yards in length, and has a huge hill as a backstop. Due to the dry ground conditions and volume of smoke, you will notice the view becoming much more cloudy beginning around the 2:00 mark.
