What Could Possibly Go Wrong: Bat Gun by Dan Zimmerman | Mar 21, 2012 | 14 comments facebook twitter linkedin email Maybe the caped crusader would tote one of these in his Batmobile along with his Batarang and Batphone. Probably not, though. Do we really need to lay out why a bat that kinda looks like a rifle is a bad idea? comments Chewbacca Defense says: March 21, 2012 at 16:07 How useless and impractical.

Reply Sam Wright says: March 21, 2012 at 16:37 Wow, there is even a muzzle hole on the end for you to cork it. Reply Charlie says: March 21, 2012 at 16:50 Wow way to kill the balance. Better off with one of the Cold Steel plastic bats. Reply C. S. P. Schofield says: March 21, 2012 at 18:38 That is the silliest goddamned thing I’ve ever seen that wasn’t pink. Reply Ben Eli says: March 21, 2012 at 18:53 My baseball coach in highschool was actually afraid of how much I talked about guns and shooting and what not. If only I had brought one of these to practice… Reply Xaq Fixx says: March 21, 2012 at 19:49 It is art. People aren’t walking around with it, no one is using it as a bat or a gun. It is no more a bad idea than a framed picture of a gun, or a non-firing replica in a museum. Hell, it is even less realistic than a blue gun… do you think those are bad ideas as well? Reply Buuurr says: March 21, 2012 at 21:12 The bat is pointless. On another note. Hi-Point Carbine in .45. Should I get it? Anyone have any opinions on it? Reply Aharon says: March 21, 2012 at 22:56 HP has a small yet loyal following with its carbines. The two people online I know that have one love it. I’ve heard them described as good, cheap err inexpensive, and reasonably fairly accurate. Some call them planet of the ape guns. The .45 features a 17.5″ barrel. While I have no idea how such a relatively long barrel for a .45 bullet to get fired out of will affect ballistics, it can be only a positive improvement. Reply Buuurr says: March 22, 2012 at 01:51 Yeah, cheap is what I am going for, Aharon. I just want a rifle to plink with… home defense and maybe some close in deer stalking. I figure best to start with cheap and see if I like it. Otherwise I just buy a rifled barrel for my mossy and smoke the deer with slugs. Reply Ralph says: March 22, 2012 at 00:13 Buuurr, why not get the Hi-Point and the bat gun? If the gun sucks, beat the cwap out of it with the bat. If the bat sucks, shoot it with the gun. Damn, I’m good. Reply Buuurr says: March 22, 2012 at 01:52 You make crap piles of sense, Ralph. In these dark times of one story in the media… I salute you. Reply Monty says: March 22, 2012 at 05:43 It’s a Hi-Point, you’ll have better trying to shoot them with the bat than the gun. Or you can just beat them with either, though the bat would probably survive that better too.
