Sharper Image .22LR Ammo Dispenser

The best use of a Sharper Image candy dispenser I’ve ever seen:

I’d make up one of those “press button receive bacon” type stickers the hand dryers have on them that has a pictogram like “hand here… receive ammo”.

I wonder if it would work on calibers above .22LR?  It would be awesome if it worked with 9mm and .45.

The motion activated candy dispenser is surprisingly only $40 at Sharper Image.   I normally avoid that store, but I think this gives me an excuse to go back in there.

Thoughts?

I wonder if the mechanism has some kind of crush-factor… if so it could be dangerous to use rimfire in?

Rimfire is a lot harder to set off than people think. They come jammed in bulkpacks worse than this, so i’m sure it wouldn’t be an issue.

Yeah true, It is meant to dispense candy anyway, shouldn’t crush anything.

If i had $40 and lived near a store i might be tempted to buy this purely for the nerdy cool factor.

I am really wondering how this is any better than just reaching into a bucket full of rounds???? Is the grabbing motion that difficult, some piece of crap machine from sharper image is better. Don’t get it.

Well it sure looks better than a bulk box of federal doesn’t it?

@Casey The difference with a bucket, is that you get your (potentially) dirty hands on ammunition that you don’t take with you.

It’s really for kicks, and for bragging rights. How many people own an electric .22lr ammo dispenser?

Yup… Nerdy cool factor it has!

Totally sweet! Too bad the amount of ammo dispensed isn’t consistent…

Just saying, sharper image doesn’t really have many if any retail locations after filing bankruptcy in 08. If you want one, just order it online!
