Bought this from a really cool kid a couple days ago same size as the real thing.
Looks like it weighs as much as the real thing too :laugh:
That's really cool! It's amazing what some folks come up with.
So where does the boolitz go into.
Somebody has far too much time on there hands. The question is why? It's cool looking, but you couldn't give it to me. Totally worthless in my opinion.
He is a local artist and has won awards for recycled art. Just thought it was cool and trying to support a local kid.
So is the wife going to let you put it on the dining room table as a center piece?........."It's priceless art honey"........
If you paid more than $50 for that, I hope your wife kicks you right in the nuts.
I think it is cool... Are those 5.56 cases that it is made of?
It think it is cool also. Not all the guy's here have to answer to a ball and chain either. That would be a great conversation piece. Nice of you to support an artist also.
I'm a ball and chain and I think the mantle above the fireplace would be a lovely spot for this! As a matter of fact, I would be the one insisting he buy it!
If you liked it so much, why does he have to spend his money? Why don't you just buy it yourself?
As the husband of a local artist I commend you guys
The Art of War! I'll bet Sun Tzu would have liked it.
Wicked awesome! Wonder if he would make one out of live rounds?!
I wouldn't want to be there when he started soldering!
why is the barrel so long.. aranoid:
I think it's cool as well. Of course it has no use other than, as Noisy Cow pointed out, a conversation piece, but what's wrong with that? Artists(especially those that are "gun-friendly") need to eat and be clothed as well. I may take a trip from Portland just to see this and when I do, I'm sure I'll buy something. So from a business standpoint maybe it's not such a useless thing after all. Well done. Kip
What are you going to do with it ?
He was eyeballing it, and I had to support him. It would look so much better on the mantle if he was able to say "I bought this because I wanted it".
Hell, he could have used my money.!
Quite frankly, if he hadn't bought it I would have. He would have tried to talk me out of it though, saying "we don't have a spot for that".
