Did you happen to catch a price on that baby? An article in American Rifleman estimated the price in the thousands. Propitiatory ammo is also going to be a little rich for my blood. For that money, you could pay a gunsmith to modify a Hi Point to chamber 10mm and have money left over for a Kimber 1911. Not to mention no available dies for reloading 7.5 x ? ( I don't remember the size). Why does the government want to spend the money to develop a handgun accurate to 150 meters anyway. Are the carbines to big and heavy? On the up side... Hitting a target a football field away with a pistol is pretty cool.

It does seem pretty cool but, not something I would have any use for. Too much penetration (over-penetration) for a carry piece. If I lived in open country where it could be used for hunting, it may possibly be my dream pistol. Only a dream though, because I still wouldn't be able to afford one.
