Silent Coil Gun

Ran across this link today.

http://www.pskovinfo.ru/coilgun/

Appears to be a working gauss (coil) pistol. Although it kind of looks like a glorified staple gun. The guy claims to be working on a silent hunting rifle too.

Silent Coil Gun

Interesting how creative people can be in countries that have tight controls on firearms.

When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns...everybody else will develop new technology to exploit legal loopholes. Further proof that gun control doesn't guarantee a peaceful society.

That's true, but all I could think of was how bad it would be if you dropped this gun in the water. Brings new meaning to the phrase "short circuit".
