New ideas for small arms?

If someone has ideas for new small arms technology where could one descuss these ideas without advertising them to the wrong crowd?

It is a pretty safe bet that most ideas have already appeared somewhere, probably here as well. Then:
  1. You have to get the idea to actually work.
  2. The idea has to prove to be effective
  3. The idea has to prove to be cost-effective (not the same thing!)
Like they say -- 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration.

You can toss your ideas out here, but be prepared to have them declared old hat, tried and failed, declared obsolete, or otherwise ripped apart.
