As good as editing and special effects software is now, it’s hard to tell if this is the real deal or not. But there’s definitely a Real Men of Genius commercial in here somewhere. Sure, there are easier ways to touch off a shot shell primer, and some people will look at a contraption like this, shake their heads and ask why. Others look at it and ask why not. Which side are you on?  [h/t]


  1. I was expecting some sort of shotshell explosive-tipped arrow contraption, set off by the force of impact.

  2. Very lame. A highly unstable zip gun. Accident waiting to happen. The bow alone is a far more effective weapon. Guess that puts me in the “Why?” category.

  3. I am a big fan of “because we can” engineering, but even I am squarely in the “why?” camp on this one.
