spear gun

Crazy slingshot guy Joerg Sprave did it:

Joerg-Sprave-Six-Barrel-Spear-GunLOL this guy sure can whip up homebrew guns quick.  Sure most of them are very rough looking, but they all seem to work well so who cares?  It’s just a real shame he hasn’t moved to the US yet and made an actual business out of his talent yet.

Starting at 4:52 he uses a rubber band powered press thing he made to set off some blank ammunition.

Some classic Royal Nonesuch right here:

Royal-Nonesuch-Eye-PatchYou guys know I tend to err on the side of caution.  I still cringe when I see no eye pro on this guy, and when he’s setting rounds off unpredictably at close range.  I’m no expert in physics, but seemed to me like something could easily go wrong and he could catch a ricochet.  3:06 confirmed that when he was throwing the loaded spear into the water at a rock and that chunk of bullet came back and nailed his camera.  4:04 the bullet shot off in the air again.  If either of those would have hit his eye, I’m guessing he would have ended up like the post thumbnail pic.

The montage at the end of this video (5:23) is lit.
