[Blabber] Hackable guns

And what undetectable ammo, rifled barrel, cooling system, spent brass
ejection, etc. would work with it?

Without a rifled steel barrel, you'd have an ALREADY notoriously inaccurate
gun shoot even Less accurately, while disintegrating or exploding in your
hand.

How about the bulge of a huge, impractical submachine pistol in your
clothing/luggage?

A full-auto would mean repeated contained explosions. Could any 3D printing
that isn't ridiculously out of reach handle such repeated structural stress
and intense heat?

Guns are heavy for a reason.
