Emailed to me by Artimus. He got it at a blind auction at an abandoned warehouse:
The only markings on it are HILP on the one arm.
He said someone made a joke that HILP stood for “High Impact Lead Poisoning” LOL
Fascinating… the base looks like it was made from an old fan. Someone really put some work into jury rigging this thing. Wow that hand is creepy… wouldn’t a simple circular target area have sufficed?
I wonder what the deal with the hand is? Maybe the person thought that if they didn’t physically pull the trigger they wouldn’t have “commited suicide”, instead they would have got murdered. Hey, you never know…
Anyone have any theories on what HILP is, or any other thoughts about this device?
