Futuristic Firearms

Here are a few high tech firearms. At the top is a sniper railgun, using magnetic fields to accelerate needles of aluminum at very high speeds over long range. Below on the left is an ion cannon, discharging huge bolts of ionised energy at targets, again accelerated by magnetic fields. Since the 'bolts' are mostly electons they can drift from target if metallic objects lie close to the flight path. At the bottom right is a Electrical stun gun. Several low power laser projectors are mounted in a circle around the central spike. These ionise the air and the spike discharges a high voltage electric arc down this prepared pathway.
