<raises sandwich>"Now just wait until the cavalry arrives".
<alarm> Ah shit.
<robber exits bank>Halt. bang. bang. bang. bang. bang. bang. bang. bang.
<chaos>
<badly acid burned robber reaches for gun>Ah, ah!
"I know what you're thinking. 'Did he fire six shots or only five?' Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being this is an Assaultin' Batteries the most powerful halfbaked invention on the internet and would blow your head clean off, you got to ask yourself one question 'Do I feel lucky?'. Well do ya punk?

<reaches for gun>

<aims Assaultin' Batteries and pulls the trigger> One lead-acid cylinder is rapidly overcharged by a capacitor bank -powered by the chest mounted battery ammunition belts wired in series- causing the round to explode in the chamber and rocket forward down the barrel towards the assailant.

       If you want to inflict acid burns, you have to make sure the acid reaches the target. My hunch is that you'd propel some lead in the direction of the baddy, but the acid would be wasted in an ineffectual spritz close to the muzzle. There'd be acid damage to nearby soft furnishings, but probably not to your enemy. You could ask [8th], but if I were you I wouldn't want to be responsible for the experiments that he might then carry out.
