Please no more slow motion videos and musical catharsis
So bascially this product is a bit bumpfireish. If you look carefully, on 'auto' mode the guys kinda relax ther hand, letting the gun rock back and forth a bit.

To be fair, I could have completely missed the point on what burst fire is intended for, given my fairly narrow viewpoint on the topic."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

The money is no fucking joke though. I have a serious desire to build a hand cranked ten barrel gatling gun at some point. There are a lot of designs available for gatling guns in .22 long rifle. At first I turned my nose up at the idea of a rimfire design and wanted to go with a more substantial cartridge . Then I started to ask myself if I wanted to spend a year of my free time building something that's going to cost me $200 a minute to shoot. Nah, not so much.

A 3 round burst on the other hand tends to work well without having to dump a whole bunch of ammo into someone.
I have no clue as to how valid of a point this is, but I do see the merit to the argument.

Military personnel have been taught to use full auto weapons in controlled three to five round bursts for decades. This mandates it.
In my view the problem is that if you're going to take a well aimed shot there's really very little need for three round burst. Three round burst is better than semi-auto in some situations like ambushes where you're shooting into vehicles and you can't pick out a specific target. I'd still rather have unrestricted full auto in those types of scenarios though. People should be able to learn ammo discipline without being given a weapon with a governor.

In my opinion, the issue of 5.56 stopping power is/was mostly resolved with the introduction of 62 and 77 grain boattail rounds for military use. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't complain if the government decided to do a mass barrel swap over to .300 AAC Blackout + provide a REPR or SCAR Heavy to each Squad DMR, but beggars can't be choosers . . .
Also, here is the ATF letter for the tacfirecon fcg in case anyone still cares about that:
Looks like the MSRP is $495. I've heard some rumblings of 3-gunner interest to go along with the Full Auto fans, so I am hoping we'll see reviews pop up fairly quickly."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal
