Glass 12GA Shotgun Slugs

Taofledermaus gives it a go:

Aw damn, that first shot was so promising.  The last one was cool too, but I would have like to see it in ultra slow motion.

Taofledermaus’ sidekick / shooter is wearing the ENDO Apparel No Right To Bear Arms California Flag shirt.  Ooooh yea.  P.S. That sounds awesome talking about someones “shooter”.  I want to have shooters.  I’d call them “Shottas” though. ahaha.

If these disintegrating glass rounds ever became popular in California with criminals, the California law makers would have an absolute fit!  Microprint all the molecules! :P

This guy made Taofledermaus the glass shotgun slugs.  Here’s him making one:

Very cool.  I like this next level stuff, even if it’s not yielding the craziest results.

And to think, I thought all glass blowers just made glass “tobacco” bongs and pipes.

This hangs in Dan Bilzerian’s house, or so the story goes, blown by Buck.

Sure, this dude’s (Buck, no not Buck Angel, but the glass artist) main focus is “tobacco use only,” but he does some really unbelievable work. Sometimes I feel bad for glassblowers who have incredible skills, but are kind of forced into blowing pipes, because that’s where the money is. So the really incredible artists and their never get known to the general public just because most people refuse to acknowledge “taboo” things as art – e.g., graffiti, glass art that just happens to have a bowl and is able to be smoked out of – and they never get any mainstream exposure cuz they don’t do any “mainstream” art. I can almost assure you the guy in that video makes a majority of his income on pipes, even if he does have the ability to do much cooler stuff than that.

I’ll probably get tons of hate on this blog for saying this, but glass is an amazing medium, and it’s kind of sad that most people just dismiss it.

Anyway, that video is cool, and boro glass will fuck your day up. Soft glass would perhaps not stand up to the rigors of being shot out of a barrel well, if at all, let alone carrying much momentum.
