    Na, not enough firepower. I would prefer a 2000 pound bomb/JDAM configuration (fighter/bomber jet included).

  • Alaskan

    That’s cool.
    I wonder what video game franchise will use the XM320 as a “special” sidearm.

    “Did he fire one 40mike or did he reload and fire 2?”
    “Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I’ve kinda lost track myself. But being this is a M320,the most powerful 40MM in all the world,and would blow you up,you got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well do ya, punk?”

    not a fan of the 320 but this i like.

  • James

    Those should be issued to Mexican policemen, god knows they need the firepower.

  • Mr Maigo

    I’d like to see an iwb.
    “Is that a 40mm in your pocket or are you happy to see me?”

  • BUG

    Very nice bit of kit BUT the empty plastic clip holder that the M320 clips into is just begging to get hung up on obstructions especially in brush, urban warfare etc.

    Why not reverse the curve to face back? You may have to move it forward around the chest an inch or two, but that shouldn’t be too hard.

    Just a thought………..

  • Frost

    I love that 40, its pretty accurate, you can hit targets up to 300m with your first shot.

  • Hopefully the holster does not need to be mounted that high on the vest. As shown, it looks like it would be terribly uncomfortable when the M320 is inserted in the holster, and that you’d lose a lot of freedom of movement in the right arm.

  • charles222

    Cool idea, although with all the other junk you tend to wind up lugging around on your FLC nowadays I donno if it’d really work out.

  • Avery

    Sounds like it would be a good carry option for riot police.

  • Joe Schmoe

    I wonder if that kind of holster is being used in this clip from afghanistan:

  • Van the Handcannon Man

    Sounds like something for me 😀

  • viper5552

    Though hilariously badass to look at, i imagine it would be a little… much to shoot.

  • Zander

    This holster concept isn’t really new; the size of it just is new. It’s basically a skeleton quick-draw shoulder holster developed back in the late 1800’s

  • Zander

    And I think it’d be better suited for cross-draw use anywho.

  • spudfiles

    Sounds like a good idea to chamber an M576 round:

    27 double ought buck pellets at one go is quite a punch, three times the weight of your average 12 bore, albeit at subsonic speed.

  • jole

    the new definition of sidearm marksmanship 1 shot multi-kill

  • spudfiles: The M576 does not use 00 Buck. It uses the smaller #4 Buck.

  • subase

    Man the M302 sucks in that video, I say all the way with the XM25, with it he could have covered much larger area much quicker. And look there were two jams just in that one video.
