In this handout picture made available Tuesday Oct. 28, 2003 by the Israel-based Cornershot Co. in Tel Aviv, Israel, a rifle is seen composed of two parts; the front, that can swivel from side to side, containing a pistol with a color camera mounted on top, and the back section which consists of the stock, trigger and a monitor. According to a report by the Israeli daily 'Maariv' newspaper, the pistol, produced by the Florida-based Cornershot Holdings, is being tested by the Israeli military and has already been bought by a number of special forces around the world. The unique weapon allows a soldier to remain behind cover, with only the barrel of the rifle exposed in the direction of the hostile fire. (AP Photo/HO, Cornershot)

It's a pistol, with a bunch of shit on the backend. What's the point?

Looks like a Glock at the front, interesting to see.

If I were fighting in urban combat it would be a nice addition.

Pretty damn neat....

Definitely warranted for the urban warfare they are facing on a daily basis.

It would be neat to have in an urban fight as long as I wouldn't be the one who had to carry it.

It looks interesting, but in the end, it's still a pistol with alot of crap on it. I'm curious as to how good the aim on the video system would be as the camera seems to be pretty far away from the bore. I also wonder if it's a mechanical or electrical linkage between the trigger on the back end and the pistol trigger.
