HOW TO – Make a Bluetooth handgun handset for your iPhone, ManaEnergyPotion writes-

How to turn an airsoft handgun and a bluetooth headset into a fun, fully functional handset for your iPhone. Pull the trigger to receive calls and to, um, end them. Listen through the barrel, and talk into the grip. I think everyone has made the thumb and forefinger gun-to-the-head sign when someone unpleasant shows up on their caller ID. Eli and I thought it would be fun to make an actual gun handset, and it turned out to be surprisingly straightforward. No glue or powertools were required. Even though it’s not very practical, there’s something so satisfying about ending a call with this handset. Pow. Naturally, this handset works with any cell phone. You just feel like pulling the trigger more if you own an iPhone.

Perfect for this month’s Spy Tech theme and MAKE volume!

    As a responsible gun owner I must state that this is incredibly irresponsible. The very first lesson in gun safety is to always treat any for of firearm (real or not) as loaded and dangerous.You should never point any type of firearm at yourself or anybody else unless it is in a controlled manner and all parties are consenting and understand the risks associated with the activity.

    Although the owner/operator of this device is most likely fully aware that it is a replica of a gun, it is far too realistic and will stir up too much attention. I would hate to see somebody arrested or worse injured or killed when somebody treats somebody holding a ‘gun’ to their face as a potentially hazardous situation and takes action.

    I have to agree with Joe on this one. Bad idea.

  3. A different Ryan says:

    I thought the same thing. Well said, Joe.

  4. Responsible Gun Owners Know Better says:

    We wonder why kids get hurt, when the adults treat guns like toys.
