    I want one. That way I’ll still have a potentially lethal self defense weapon when Obama manages to finish packing the SCOTUS with anti-Second Amendment judges and they decide by judicial fiat that the 2nd Amendment only applies to members of the Military and Law Enforcement.

    Hmm… While I’d barely classify that 1/8″ luan crap as “plywood”, and mention that you could put your finger through it with very little effort, I still want one.

      Indeed. I hesitated at the headline, and in the end copped out to sensationalism. =]

    I, like Matthias, live in the country, and after recently joining MAKE, saw this, and thought of using it as a ranged way to shoo deer from our garden. Overkill? I hope it wouldn’t hurt the deer, so I won’t be using ball bearings. Any thoughts?

    What kind of tool was used to make the track for the barrel?
