Shotgun Shell Pez Type Dispenser

The Ammo-BOSS Gunner’s Mate:

Terrible video, extremely painful to watch.

You can check out the IndieGOGO campaign here.  Pre-ordering one of these starts at $40.  For that price you’ll get one if the project ends up getting funded.  This isn’t looking promising because he’s only at 8% of his $90,000 goal (LOL $90k).  Looks like the product might be of some use to people.  I’d probably buy one if it didn’t look like a bag of dicks, held more than 8 shells (or wasn’t so big at it’s current capacity), and worked with 3″ shells as well.  It’s like “Bro do you even operate?”.

Shotgun-Shell-Pez-Dispenser

Dwight-Schrute-QuoteI’m skeptical on what exactly he feels is patentable here.  “The Ambidextrous retention system?  Trigga Please.  Doesn’t look like it preforms any different than the function of a magazine to me, unless there is some complex proprietary weird stuff going on inside (in which case I find this product even less attractive).   My guess is he got taken by the classic “yes sir!” type lawyer who would literally  write up and file a patent application for anything at all as long as you’re paying them.

Thoughts?

These kickstarter/indieGOGO campaigns are getting out of control. What ever happened to brining a product to market without begging people to fund your development and pay your salary while doing so. And $90k? to bring a injection molded “magazine” to market… Laughable. $30 for something that will end up costing $2 to produce.

“Back in my day, there was no internet porn. You needed connections, like crazy uncle Jim that mom said was a bad influence. And even then you’d have to figure out where to hide your physical stash; there was no hidden folders and browser erasing. Real boys had to work for those brief moments of bliss… in fear.”

what’s the difference between this and a slightly modified saiga magazine?

Siaga magazines function for something useful and are real products.

Reminds me of the wear-able AR15 magazine magazine from awhile back:

First thought, Get a damn haircut before you make a video pitching your product.

I’ll agree the video could have been produced with a little more effort towards quality but I’ll give him props for creative thinking and pursuing his American Dream. That said……I can see a small market for this among trap shooters & small game hunters. As far as the 3gun & other speed shooting sports go, one shell at a time doesn’t cover it. In my opinion, comparing it to a Saiga or any other shotgun magazine isn’t quite fair because of the way the rounds are stripped from it.

Would I buy one? Maybe. If it would accept 2 & 3/4″ – 3 & 1/2″ shells I could see a use for it in the woods but for $40 I’ll probably just keep a pocket full of extra rounds while hunting.
