Military Grade Stapler

A stapler, using normal staples that are driven into the paper you are stapling using the power of a very small cartridge to drive the hammer each time. Belt-fed cartridges allow stapling in bursts of three, single shot or full automatic if you're in a sanguine mood.

Then, after you have spent many late hours stapling a large brief of evidence for tomorrow morning's anti-trust trial, your office floor is littered with neatly stacked piles of paper, strewn with spent brass and smells of burnt cordite and rendered metal.

       Thanks for the link, [xenzag]. I was unaware you had posted yours, as I can't see your ideas.   

       I don't think it's sufficiently different from yours to warrant it remaining.   

       This idea will self-destruct in 24 hours.
UnaBubba, May 30 2012

       The ideas are different to my eyes. [xenzag] came up with a curved, gun-like magazine to hold the staples while this one is belt-fed with the crux of the idea being presumably the motive power delivering the staples. Your call though [UB].

       Trying not to start a stapler arms race.
UnaBubba, May 31 2012

       Better not or I'll give you a paperclip around the ear.
AusCan531, May 31 2012

       // start a stapler arms race //   

       That would presumably imply long-arm staplers …

       That would be Police staplers, [8th].
UnaBubba, May 31 2012

       More like ze Gestapler...   

       [2 Fries] wins.

       needs tracer staples to allow stapling in the dark

       Not too many, though. You don't want the enemy to pinpoint your position too easily.

       It's be £100 more than the civilian version, would come out two years late, 80% over-budget and be completely incompatible with allied forces own military staplers, leading to a massive loss of data due to an open window and strong gust of wind.

       Need to set up an Anti-ballistic-staple interceptor in Poland.

sp. Nailgun? I'm not sure if there are stapler versions...
neutrinos_shadow, Jun 01 2012

       No, not a nailgun. There are any number of staple guns used in the furniture and upholstery business, that use compressed air.   

       This one uses a belt of miniature ammunition, to provide the force to depress the hammer.
UnaBubba, Jun 01 2012

       //to depress the hammer   

       Do hammers get depressed?   

       Analyst) Und zo, when did you start hitting tacks?   

       Hammer) Doc, I'm a hammer, it's what we do..   

       Analyst) Hmm, a tack ting attention behaviour... <doctor scrawls in notebook with bad Austrian accent>
