Friday Gun Porn–(07/01/2011)

Now for something completely different.  In the words of  Crocodile Dundee, “That ain’t a knife, now this is a knife.”

I don’t know why, I really want one of these, maybe it’s because lobbing a 10lbs bowling ball 600 yards without trying is just freaking awesome.

Not to mention the sound is eerie (skip to 1:49).

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.

    Hubby is wondering what this is, he doesn’t recognize it and can’t find it on Google.

      Those are custom bowling ball mortars that some of the guys built and brought to Boomershoot this year.

      It’s made from an old Oxygen tank, milled out, and then the proper external hardware attached. It’s like a potato gun, but for us big kids. 🙂

    That looks like fun. We are kicking ourselves for not getting out to the Boomershoot this year. Have to make sure we at least come out to watch next year (and with any luck, get to participate).
