True homemade coilgun pistol from Russia.

At lunchtime, somehow coilguns got brought up in the conversation, specifically, DC mentioned this Gauss gun made by some russion person.

Apparently the site got hit by slashdot, and as a result, Optus decided to redirect Optus Cable users using the above link to a local cached version. When transparent proxies become non-transparent...

The site above includes circuit diagrams and lots of pictures. The gun runs off 6 AA batteries, and fires the bullet silently, as no explosion is necessary for propulsion.
