Forgotten Weapons sees a lot of odd firearms, from a machine gun that Italian troops would mount to bicycles to Uzis that look like horseshoes. But the Frankenau purse gun takes the cake for pure strangeness.
Given the number of people shot by police every year because they were reaching for a “suspicious object”, you might think that disguising firearms as everyday objects is a bad idea. But US company Ideal Conceal disagrees—a double-barrelled .380 iPhone is exactly what we need to ensure our safety and freedom.
You can find just about anything you want on eBay, from duct tape to Kim Kardashian's old clothes. It's a magical place! It's also an online retailer violating its own rules, and helping buyers sidestep California law, because you can easily buy and sell assault weapons parts on the website.
Sometimes, you want to show up holding a really big gun. Let people know you mean business, by hoisting a honking great shooter that you can barely hoist. But sometimes, subtle is best. When you want to be sneaky, or just really cute, with your choice of firearm, there's always these teeny tiny pistols.
The next time riot police open fire during your Constitutionally-protected demonstration, it might not be with tear gas canisters. It could be with shotgun-launched stun and pepper rounds. Enjoy your concussion and face full of capsaicin, citizen, and be glad they're not murder bullets.
A couple years ago, when a 25-year-old law student in Texas said he was going to 3D-print a gun, nobody took him seriously. Then, he actually did it. And then, a lot of people started doing it. Now, it's so easy that some protestors are going make a gun inside the Texas State Capitol with a special gun machine. This…
Thanks to the ever-diligent men and women of the United States Transportation Security Administration, we can all rest a little bit easier tonight. Yesterday at approximately 17:00 hours, a one Mr. Rooster Monkburn was successfully disarmed when a TSA agent confiscated the monkey sock puppet's two-inch, vaguely…
The 21st century has been a real disappointment so far. Our robot servants top out at mediocre vaccums, self-driving cars are years away (and won't be able to fly even when they do arrive), and we're closer to inventing tricorders than phasers. A tricorder. Who wants a goddamn medical scanner when you could be…
Confiscated weapons are always destroyed, but that doesn't mean the wreckage can't be used for something. Artist Pedro Reyes took the remains of 6,700 guns—many of which had probably seen some action—and used their dismembered parts to build instruments for a makeshift gunmetal orchestra.
Firearms blogger Andrew Tuohy fired a few rounds from his M1911 pistol underwater to expand his bullets and snagged photos of the process. Here, we can witness the explosive power that erupts from the barrel of a gun as it pushes through liquid.
Flintlock pistols may have been super effective against single opponents because, as Boris the Bullet Dodger once said, "If it doesn't work you can always hit them with it." Against groups, however, they were comically useless—that is, until enterprising gunsmiths added some extra barrels.
Nobody would fault you for bringing a knife to a Swiss Minigun C1ST fight. Recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the smallest functional revolver on the planet, this diminutive firearm makes Derringers look like Desert Eagles.
A gun safe's purpose is obvious in its name, but many readily available models fail to deliver, as this 3-year-old safe-cracker is quick to demonstrate.
Anybody who knows his rifle from his gun can tell you how essential it is to keep a firearm cleaned and lubricated. So after a long day at the range (or at the top of a clock tower), here's how to keep your rifle in perfect working order.
Destin over at the Smarter Every Day video blog has done it again. This time he shows you gun-lovers how to take incredible photos of muzzle flashes. The rig he's built has impeccable timing, and the results are amazing.
Compact pack rifles are usually designed to be carried for emergencies, and this ultra lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber model, from Mountain View Machine & Welding, will greatly improve your chances of survival since it can also be transformed into a telescoping fishing rod.
It's tough to keep a gun drawn on a prisoner when the cell door lock requires two hands to open - that's where the Key Gun comes in. It's literally both a key AND a gun. Our friends at Oobject have six classic examples.
I would never condone shooting any living creature in the head with a laser gun, especially not a helpless little pooch like the one you see above, but on the other hand I'm not going apologize for finding Art Lebedev's concept dog leash a little bit clever. (And, OK, disclaimer: I'm a cat person! There!) The handle…
Presenting the most ridiculous firearm I've ever seen: a two-headed monster that takes two fully automatic Glock 18 pistols, connects their tops so that both guns are pointed sideways, and finishes off with a scope for good measure. That's all the details we have for the Doppelglock at the moment, although who needs…
You've really got to feel for the Lloyds of Canada, who tried flying back home from Britain with this army-base souvenir tucked into their carry-on luggage, only to be told it was a "firearm," and not allowed on the plane.
