    That was awesome!

  3. avatar Daniel Silverman says:

    That was an epic used of thousands of dollars of specialty equipment! I so want one, or ten lol

  4. avatar Blehtastic says:

    I like it. There should be a whole obstacle course set up where one shot activates the next target, for like 20 targets in a row.

    It’s the only way to be sure.

      Where’s my pulse rifle at?

  8. avatar jw says:

    Damn! You NEED to make and sell these…for training purposes, of course! 😉

  9. avatar jw says:

    The real question is whether you can make a M41 Pulse Rifle Clone to complete the set 😉

    Game over, man!

  11. avatar Pascal says:

    That was amazing!

    Wish I could do that, and wish I had a range to shoot it!

  12. avatar Jeff says:

    I want one

    Now if he could make a baby alien that pops out of someone’s chest and slithers across a table, that would be totally awesome!

    BTW, the best thing about that movie was Sigourney Weaver in her underwear.

      +1! Puberty has burned her climbing into that suit into my memory permanently.

    2. avatar Gyufygy says:

      *sings* Hello my baby, hello my darling, hello my ragtime gaaaaaaaal!

    3. avatar benny says:

      yes that would be awesome

      YES that was the best part.

      someone could make alot of money selling a setup like this.

  14. avatar Russ Bixby says:

    I do the same sh¡t with a plain old torch.

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      Yes, but it’s much better with a shotgun.

      1. avatar Russ Bixby says:

        Guinness on the monitor. Again.

        1. avatar benny says:

          Ralph is good at that.

          A little too good….

  15. avatar benny says:

    Holy crapspackle i want this….

  16. avatar Matt in FL says:

    That was amazing. I want one. Actually I want a dozen or so, in an array.

  17. avatar John L. says:

    Great … Now I have to go out and buy a shotgun …

  18. avatar Savings says:

    So, were you going to give the guy who made it credit, or were you just happy for people to just assume you made it?

    1. avatar Butch Cassidy says:

      It should be pretty self-evident, the shooter didn’t pile-drive the gun into the ground at the end.

    A pop-up target? Really? And the alien is not even coming towards him.
    How does that pass for cool? An alien flying out of that egg is coming for
    you, not flying away from you. Cool, would be having that target flying at
    you and threatening your life. A spring-loaded zip line that was anchored
    above and from behind you would be cool. If the alien is flying towards
    you and the distance to engage it decreases rapidly, then you would have
    a cool shooting scenario. Having someone else controlling when the alien
    pops up would be even cooler yet. Making the alien out of a light-weight
    foam with several lengths of builders string line pulled by a 5 lb weight
    would be much cheaper to build and would rate a lot higher on the FPS
    coolness. And if you shoot the string line, replacing it would cost pennies.
    I don’t have thousands of dollars to spend. For the cost of a couple of
    clothes line pulley’s, two 8ft 4×4 posts, and some string line, a far more
    realistic FPS shooting scenario could be achieved. Using half gallon milk
    cartons full of sand would serve as the 5 lb weight that activates the alien(s). If you want a more lively alien attack, use an elastic cord to attach the alien to the string-line. When the weight drops, that sucker is going to moving. Now that would be cool. But then, I was never afraid of clay pigeons that were flying away from me.
