ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!! You can fire this thing without the barrel being on! You can actually load a round and with nothing between your body and the inevitable shrapnel, you can actually detonate the cartridge!!!! Holy Mackeral!!!! Watch the video.It's only like 100 bucks...
Here is one. I actually like the idea but i believe its ammo sensitive
Bond Arms "Bullpup 9"
There was a 100-round 9mm magazine too, it made the handgun part look like a carry handle strapped to the side of a giant canister, not even a firearm at that point. Of all things it was someone I knew in California 10+ years ago that has (had?) one, no idea where they are now.Another stroke of firearm oddity/1980's insanity,
The 9mm held 50.
I remember the COP! A 4 barrel cluster with a rotating firing pin mechanism. Persephone in "The Matrix" movies drew one and killed a werewolf NPC at The Carolingian's nightclub in order to help Neo find the Keymaker!Take that...smooth it out...and you have the only gun that was made in my hometown Torrance, CA.
After watching some videos of the Thunderstruck S333, I actually think the concept has some merit. If the 2 shots with each pull of the trigger were space apart appropriately, that could put some real damage on target.
Always wanted one of those, but could never afford it! The weird gun I COULD afford, that I don't think anyone has mentioned yet, is one of Mr. Kellgren's designs, the Grendel P10: a semi-auto .380 with a fixed (non-detachable) magazine. If you've never seen one, they load through the top with the slide locked back, pushing single rounds down into the mag, or loading 10 at a time using AR15/M16 stripper clips; picture most versions of the old 'broom handle' Mauser. I like it a lot (it's reliable, AND fun to shoot) - although you almost need to be an athlete and/or a contortionist to field strip the P10 for cleaning. I figure, when "The Gun Ban Political Party" bans all firearms with detachable magazines, and all revolvers that hold more than four rounds, I'll be sittin' pretty!Here is one. I actually like the idea but i believe its ammo sensitive...
Bond Arms "Bullpup 9"
Could be handy in a Jeep!How about this one: A Pack Rifle from MVMW in Logan, Utah. It is a 22 LR single shot rifle with a carbon fiber barrel that converts to a fishing pole. The rod telescopes out of the tube that acts as the buttstock. The entire gun weighs 16 ounces without the scope.
What qualifies as weird?
An idea that was so out of the mainstream that it never caught on?
Something unconventional that is successful today? Barely?
An old idea that is new again?
Failed prototypes and bad military weapons?
What is your fav weird gun?
Even better if you own it.
Pictures would be nice.
I just ask for one rule, this is not a "bad gun" thread. Weird is not always bad.
