    I had the Agent Zero camera when I was a kid. Push a button and it would unfold into a gun. IIRC you could actually see through the viewfinder.

    Those are very cool! My dad had a pistol grip with a trigger to engage the aperture/film drive on his 8mm film camera! He later carved a stock for it but never really liked it.

    Connections with the personnel department on the Ship I was billeted, allowed me to use a 35mm Nikon SLR with a 1200 mm plus doubler lens mounted on a rifle stock to peruse Ipanema Beach Brazil from afar. Even with the stock it was difficult to keep it steady. Sounds like voyeurism now, but At 18, it was just pure fun.

    I'm surprised more bad guys haven't twigged onto painting their real guns bright and odd colors, because nobody pays attention to it as everyone typically visualizes all guns as either black or bright and shiny stainless/chrome.

    Pretty sure I read about a guy running around with a red-tipped rifle a few years ago. Major nutjob IIRC.
