Make an Alien Face-Hugger Target! by Nick Leghorn | May 12, 2013 | 28 comments facebook twitter linkedin email Definitely more entertaining than the zombie targets . . . comments Gyufygy says: May 12, 2013 at 14:05 If you have a laser cutter, you should never be bored. @[email protected] Reply Sixpack70 says: May 12, 2013 at 14:09 That was awesome! Reply Daniel Silverman says: May 12, 2013 at 14:44 That was an epic used of thousands of dollars of specialty equipment! I so want one, or ten lol Reply Blehtastic says: May 12, 2013 at 14:44 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. Reply Scott says: May 12, 2013 at 14:47 Awesome!! I, also, lost sleep after watching this flick as a child,,,good times, those. Reply NWBob says: May 12, 2013 at 14:50 Damn, I just want to be able to buy a brick of .22LR for under $25. Reply Hal J. says: May 12, 2013 at 15:07 Nuke it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure. Reply g says: May 12, 2013 at 15:53 +1 Where’s my pulse rifle at? Reply jw says: May 12, 2013 at 15:07 Damn! You NEED to make and sell these…for training purposes, of course! 😉 Reply jw says: May 12, 2013 at 15:08 The real question is whether you can make a M41 Pulse Rifle Clone to complete the set 😉 Reply Private Hudson says: May 12, 2013 at 15:29 Game over, man! Reply Pascal says: May 12, 2013 at 15:31 That was amazing! Wish I could do that, and wish I had a range to shoot it! Reply Jeff says: May 12, 2013 at 15:49 I want one Reply Ralph says: May 12, 2013 at 16:23 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. Reply Rambeast says: May 12, 2013 at 16:31 +1! Puberty has burned her climbing into that suit into my memory permanently. Reply Gyufygy says: May 12, 2013 at 17:27 *sings* Hello my baby, hello my darling, hello my ragtime gaaaaaaaal! Reply benny says: May 12, 2013 at 20:16 yes that would be awesome YES that was the best part. someone could make alot of money selling a setup like this. Reply Russ Bixby says: May 12, 2013 at 16:27 I do the same sh¡t with a plain old torch. Reply Ralph says: May 12, 2013 at 16:35 Yes, but it’s much better with a shotgun. Reply Russ Bixby says: May 12, 2013 at 17:11 Guinness on the monitor. Again. Reply benny says: May 12, 2013 at 20:17 Ralph is good at that. A little too good…. benny says: May 12, 2013 at 20:17 Holy crapspackle i want this…. Reply Matt in FL says: May 12, 2013 at 22:16 That was amazing. I want one. Actually I want a dozen or so, in an array. Reply John L. says: May 13, 2013 at 00:15 Great … Now I have to go out and buy a shotgun … Reply Savings says: May 13, 2013 at 07:12 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? Reply Butch Cassidy says: May 13, 2013 at 11:26 It should be pretty self-evident, the shooter didn’t pile-drive the gun into the ground at the end. Reply Out_Fang_Thief says: May 13, 2013 at 12:35 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. Reply tbt10f says: May 16, 2013 at 20:58 Looking forward to your youtube video of the improved version.
