ASUS Negligent Discharge Edition Laptop

eBayer’s gonna have negligent discharges and eBay:

You can visit the auction page on eBay – HERE

From the auction description:

The item functions perfectly but as seen on the photo, there is a bullet hole just below the screen.

A firearm discharged accidentally while being maintenanced.

The screen is not at all damaged.

The seller also includes a video showing the laptop in perfect working condition.

At the time of writing this there are 13 bids on the laptop with the price currently at $355.  There’s 1 day and 14 hours left on the auction, but if it stays that low someone is going to get a sweet deal because that same laptop (without bullet hole) is going for around $1000 over at Amazon.

Thoughts?  I don’t care what the end price is, I would get sick of explaining that the bullet hole was not a result of my own derp… and then not having anyone believe me.  Although I suppose a person could always carry a printout of the auction, or take a screenshot for posterity to show to the non-believers.

Any of you guys ever put a bullet hole through an expensive piece of electronic equipment?  Chronographs do count.

I’ve shot my chronograph before. Getting the more-expensive PACT turned out to be a good move, because the repair was only $20 for new detectors. I’ve seen those Shooter’s Gamma units in the trash can at the range before, after the shot went through the detectors and the brains of the unit, too.

Fwiw, it wasn’t an ND, it was being careless with the bore offset on a rifle up close to the muzzle…

I destroy old hard drives that way.
22LR at 50 yards doesn’t penetrate, but milsurp 5.45×39 does and excellent job.

BTW, Mike, you seem to like cool videos, so here’s a good one.

I routinely shoot old electronics that may have been valuable at one point, desktops, hard drives, IPods, whatever. The hard drives for personal data security and all the rest for fun. But it’s always been on purpose and in a safe area… Unlike this bozo I suspect. Not sure I’d pay $300-$400 for it, maybe $100 if I was in a good mood.

BTW, the people at my local E-Waste disposal site think I’m craaaazy for the shot up stuff I turn in.

First time I turned in a desktop, I think I shrugged my shoulders and said something like “girlfriend broke up with me on facebook…”. I’ve also tried “crashed on my best world of warcraft session ever…”.

I have a pair of athletic shorts that have a shotgun hole in them… My friend shot my shotgun through my bedroom floor, my shorts got in the way… They’re still the comfiest shorts I own.
