The operation of a HyperSpace Advancements Military firearm starts with the simple motion of a trigger backwards into the gun casing.

The gun then requests confirmation from the grip, accessing the smart glove holding the weapon. When received, a fibre-optic pulse is transmitted to the upper receiver microprocessor unit. From there, it is redirected to the ammunition micro-manufacture assembly. Lasers slice off precisely enough to for a bullet, which is then pressure-forged and cooled within two microseconds. It is shifted into the main barrel while still hot.

The processor receives the bullet loading signal and checks for a lock-on from the scope interface. If there is, the bullet is cut into an appropriate shape that adjusts airflow to strike the target.

Generator banks pull power from millions of buckyball springs and store them in capacitors, immediately discharging violently via thousands of electromagnets in succession and shooting the bullet down the barrel.

The trigger then moves back into place.

    I thought a morphing barrel would be too much to ask.

    On a side note, this was just a short experiment in a different writing style.

    an amazing description, although not really a story with a plot, it was a great read.
