    I didn't know this video existed until today. Note the Gary Paul Johnston article in Handgunner. You may find a copy somewhere. Have fun.

    The magazine article in the video is about the Colt multi-caliber that we were going to make for them. The article is visible if you enlarge the video and pause playing when the article is visible. It's the one on the right. The one on the left is the P&R version.

    looks pretty cool. I stumbled across a blog by "airborne combat engineer" about something similar.

    Trez, you could post the first YouTube video of someone shooting a Medusa. That'd be awesome!

    Yes, but he didn't shoot them! He also didn't know the little trick about giving the 9s a little twist when loading. Since I'm not in production anymore, I'd load a .30 Carbine and a .38 Super.

    I have a few more boxes to go through for the manual.

    Hey those 9's are tricky without your little trick, and if i remember right hes afraid to shoot .380 acp (its my favorite cal. to shoot in the Medusa)
    I have a buddy who has some .30 carbine, and it fit!!! Crazy!! :eek:
    I was thinking of doing a vid of the Medusa but im still trying to identify and collect all the calibers its shoots

    .32, .32Mag and 22 Jet. Look, the shells will not be wonderful (or re-loadable) when you shoot the sub rounds in your Medusa, but you CAN shoot them safely. I wanted a real weapon you could dry fire the snot out of all day long and not worry about hurting the wimpy parts - there aren't any wimpy parts. Any time you see junk like that printed from the mfg about your firearm, quickly trade it for a shotgun and then trade that for a real gun (good job, Trez). What the frak are snap caps for? Oh yeah, dry firing.....

    So i can dry fire the Medusa too??!! Every time i learn something new about the Medusa I love it even more....
    To be honest I didnt even know what it was until after i got it home, I just wasnt that impressed with a 870 Wingmaster as everybody else.

    Im working on it, if I ever win the lotto you'll be the first to know!!:D (I want your "Wilderness Explorer" too!!!)
