I normally try to steer clear of weapons-related posts, but this “full auto” crossbow from YouTuber TheDuckman666 was too cool to pass up. There’s lots more crossbow-y goodness on his personal site. [via The Automata / Automaton Blog]

  1. No discussion necessary here, this man just wins.

    The project is just the right kind of crazy, covers so many different disciplines, and is implemented so well.
    It has a great deal about it to command respect, even if no one really needs an assault crossbow. You know you want one though…

  2. You are so interesting! I do not think I’ve truly read through something like this before.
    So nice to find someone with a few unique thoughts on this subject.

    Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This site is
    one thing that is required on the web, someone with
    some originality!
