What would actually happen if you put a sword (think a rapier) in the barrel of a gun and it fired?
I've seen an arrow shot from a smooth bore shotgun. Shooting a sword or blade from a rifled barrel such as a hunting rifle would be a quick way to blow up the receiver and possibly die.

As for legality, there is nothing on the books about it afaik and it isn't formally classified as a ballistic knife so on your property depending on the state you live in it would be fine. As long as you are fine with possibly blowing up the gun.
