Tesla ray gun

Original poster: Esondrmn@xxxxxxx In the latest issue of Discover magazine (Feb. 2007) there is an article on future weapons that have been talked about for many years. One section is on Ray Guns. Here is a quote from the article: "Companies like Ionatron and Xtreme Alternative Defense Systems have developed competing zap guns. Both weapons use pulsed lasers to create a conductive path in the air away from the gun's barrel and then use a simple Tesla coil to generate a painful bolt of electricity. Both rifles are the size of a briefcase, weigh 25 pounds, and can shoot electricity wildly at 12 feet or consistently at 4 feet. Occasionally, the flashing purple discharge kicks back and lashes the bejesus out of the poor guy holding the gun."
