Wooden Pencil Resembling A Rifle Round

Not a “M16 bullet” as the design company would have you believe:

Me being anal… but it’s not a “bullet” nor does it resemble the 5.56 NATO round in the slightest. I don’t know why people that don’t know guns, try to sell a products using gun terminology without consulting anyone. ┬áIt happens so often.

Also, whats “PAN!”? Is it French for “BANG!”?

Yes, “pan” is french for “bang”, but quite childish… The typical is “pan, pan, t’es mort” (bang, bang you’re dead).
People tend to use “bang” nowadays.

hehe thanks Atlas. That’s pretty funny that another language has a different word for “bang” considering it’s a sound.
