The actual inventor preferred ice skating in his parlor when not slaving away at the Armory.

And the inventor of said device never received one penny from the US Government for his invention except his Government paycheck. He instead transferred all rights over to the US Government.

And the $100,000.00 appreciation award that the Military wanted to give him got voted down in Congress.

Congress then was no better than Congress now, except that Congress now would have voted the money for themselves instead.

Not totally correct Invictus, it may catch fire and leave you some instant barbq if you use an incendiary round.

Of course it is a true story. You just couldn't make up something like that, no way.

Not even as an anti-tank weapon? Mine works great for that
I have not seen a tank anywhere near my place since I bought it
