saw one of these demo'd on pawn stars. they were apparently more ceremonial than anything else: awkward to fire at close range, near-useless beyond that, and as a spark-powder weapon, notoriously unreliable. even less reliable than the norm, really, given that the item is meant to be operated as a key most of the time... design and logistics issues, in short.
