Cool but needs work for sure. Less power than a 9mm hand gun by 30% but bigger than a rifle. Great potentioal down the line but just a toy for now IMO.

Very cool idea, but I’ll wait for version 3 when it’s more maneuverable, unless classic fire arms are outlawed, ya never know

The biggest issue with any gun is how you generate or store the energy to power the projectile. One such device uses the kinetic energy of how it got into place - in outer space. A small charge releases it from it's holding rails and gravity powers it as it falls back toward earth.

A tungsten rod the size of a telephone pole. The results are measured on Richter scales.

The rule of .gov disclosure is the more secret the project, the more decades we hint about it before it's revealed. Electric rail guns are right out there, performance isn't much yet. Quantum spacecraft or "rods from God" is largely debunked from every quarter. Still talking about it for over 80 years.
