Reply That was an epic used of thousands of dollars of specialty equipment! I so want one, or ten lol Reply 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 Awesome!! I, also, lost sleep after watching this flick as a child,,,good times, those. Reply Damn, I just want to be able to buy a brick of .22LR for under $25. Reply Nuke it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure. Reply +1 Where’s my pulse rifle at? Reply Damn! You NEED to make and sell these…for training purposes, of course! 😉 Reply The real question is whether you can make a M41 Pulse Rifle Clone to complete the set 😉 Reply Game over, man! Reply That was amazing! Wish I could do that, and wish I had a range to shoot it! Reply I want one Reply 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 +1! Puberty has burned her climbing into that suit into my memory permanently. Reply *sings* Hello my baby, hello my darling, hello my ragtime gaaaaaaaal! Reply yes that would be awesome YES that was the best part. someone could make alot of money selling a setup like this. Reply I do the same sh¡t with a plain old torch. Reply Yes, but it’s much better with a shotgun. Reply Guinness on the monitor. Again. Reply Ralph is good at that. A little too good…. Holy crapspackle i want this…. Reply That was amazing. I want one. Actually I want a dozen or so, in an array. Reply Great … Now I have to go out and buy a shotgun … Reply 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 It should be pretty self-evident, the shooter didn’t pile-drive the gun into the ground at the end. Reply 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 Looking forward to your youtube video of the improved version.
