29. Not being marketed to prisons - this was a software conference
Edited on Fri Sep-14-07 04:29 PM by RamboLiberal
for software prison and parole officers use. Instead of a golf outing they did a handgun shoot and someone thought it would be fun to bring the gatling gun down to demo and excite the attendees.

Maybe they got the idea from the Knob Creek machine gun shoot that's been featured on TV.

On edit here's what I posted in the DU Gun Forum from Altoona newspaper.

The minigun was part of a weapons exhibition offered by East Coast Gun Sales, which hosted a pistol shoot and dinner for those attending a three-day conference offered by Digital Solutions/Inmate Telephone Inc., a provider of computer software for the corrections industry.

Here's their agenda: http://www.dsiiti.com/about/documents/NEWAPAgenda_2007....
