    The point was to get in the Guiness Book, which they evidently did. People have done stupider to get into that book and secure their 15 mins of fame.

    He's lucky he didn't choose to build the world's biggest Russian Nagant revolver. Can you imagine the pull on a gas seal revolver THAT size?
