Sadly, this cutting edge weapon was practically stillborn, as new laws banning it went into effect shortly after it's production began. There is now only a military version. The Calico Company has had the misfortune to have started out in the oil rig business just before the end of the oil boom, and then to have expanded into the gun business just before a new round of legislative silliness made their pioneering new gun illegal to buy. My guns are grand fathered in, so that I may own them, and even sell them if I wish, but no new guns are permitted into civilian hands from the factory. The telescoping stock has a strange feel to it, but once gotten used to the gun will shoot remarkable 3 inch groups at 100 yards. This rivals some assault rifles and is certainly taking the 9mm cartridge to it's limit. The empties are ejected straight downward, and Calico even offers a bag to latch on to the bottom of the receiver so that the hand loader will not have to comb the ground for them. This is a neat gun and an exciting concept which deserves better than it got.
I am presently searching for a scope mount, for this fine gun, so that I can install a Bushnell Holosight on it. The Holosight would seem to be ideal for this type of weapon, and I am greatly looking forward to mating the two. The Holosight offers parallax free targeting no matter what the orientation is between head and sight. You simply put the sight on the target and shoot; just like a video game. Unlike a laser sight, the Holosight is usable at all ranges, and under all lighting conditions.
