    Anyone get to see one of these at SHOT? The pistol is called .22 TCM and it fires a special cartridge developed by Armscor, whose specifications speak about a peak velocity of 2100 fps.

    The cartridge is produced using a .223 Rem. case, which has the same rim diameter as the 9mm Para one. RIA is planning to offer the pistol together with a 9mm barrel, so customers can use either round in their pistols.

    Very interesting. I'd like to see how it shoots.
