Yep, it's like ludachris said, EMP is'nt the end all omega
weapon, electronics can be protected from EMP.
As for our dependency on computer technology, well alot fo our
weapons could'nt be made without it, and others would be highly
ineffective without them.
As for metal storm, well I don't think it will ever totally replace
small arms systems in the military.
I'm not sure about the costs, but I'd imagine that electronic guns
are probably somewhat more expensive to produce than normal
guns, so that may prevent its dominance as well.
And, even if there was a massive EMp burst, that could knock out
the entire computer network of America, and I'm assuming we'd
have a M.A.D like scenario, it does'nt take a copmputer to make
a gun, so whoever knows how to make non-digitized guns will
have the upper hand.
