I wouldnt trust it too much either , If they would make one that fired a 9mm , or 45 , with its intent to only be used for 4-5 rounds . Then it could be used like the 45 cal . liberator pistol of WW2 , ” best gun to get another gun ” . Designed for point blank use against occupying enemy soldiers to take their gun . Interesting thing about the liberator , hundreds and hundreds were dropped in occupied territories , and not one record of it ever being used .
