I have been involved in two. It was like 20 grand each when all is said and done. Unfortunately I'm the engineer who created the product for the company that paid for the patent so I just get credit without the rights. Nothing quite like gas powered machine guns though! Can't wait to see this. I'm really curious how it all works. Gas, bullets and engineering.
