    Neat! Experimenting with steel flechettes might be fun.

    I read an old cheesy Sci-Fi book about prisoners on an orbiting prison making something like that to escape.

    Ok! Get them up to about 20,000fps and I want one!

    20,000 fps? Dude it'd be firing bolts of ionized iron plasma at that sort of speed. The steel would melt due to air resistance and transform into plasma. Not that there's anything wrong with this idea.. but get em up to to say 2500 fps and you've got me solid.
