The Corner Shot Weapon

Founded by two senior officers from elite units of the Israel Defense Forces with US investors, the Corner Shot is one of the latest in artillery used by the military, law enforcement agencies and special forces around the globe.


Amos Golan, the inventor, one of Corner Shot's founders and a former Anti-Terror Unit Commander, said: "I believe that the Corner Shot weapon system can be extremely beneficial in the global war on terror. It protects soldiers' lives and increases their chances of survival, while drastically improving their ability to gather information and transmit the combat scenario as well as pinpoint and engage targets out of their line of sight." He added: "Today's combat situations, especially in low intensity conflicts, involve fighting in urban terrain, and inside inhabited buildings, forced entry into airplanes, buses or trains. This unnecessarily exposes security forces to the enemy and presents an immediate risk to their lives. Corner Shot removes the need for this initial exposure." 
"The Corner Shot system is designed in a way that enables security forces to engage targets from the left, and right, from the front, up or down, and to move to each of these shooting positions very rapidly without the removal of hands from the weapon. This shortens reaction time and increases accuracy in sudden engagement situations. The weapon system can be triggered completely from behind cover."
I do appreciate the cleverness of the design and the practical 'intent' that the designer had in mind when dreaming this up, but the gun appears 'bulky' and cumbersome to use. Personally no gun would be able to replace my fists of steel and my cat-like reflexes.


Check out the Demo Video below. Perhaps the horrible acting will sell you differently...

I wonder how this gun handles kick banks when it fires. With the angle, a kick back may throw the gun out of the users hands.
