|"It works out the same as the lawgiver except it won't fire or blow up In the wrong hands I.E. if you do not have the ident ring on your finger it will not fire or (explode). The bullets are electricaly fired. The barrels that the bullets are in (there are four by the way)in the normal configuration act as the bullet shells so when you have fired all the bullets you simpley change the barrel units.Check out the Metal Storm web site at http://www.metalstorm.com/ "
