I am in the wrong line of work.

Here I am, trying to draw tip jar donations with useful (see The Zelman Partisans), and sometimes mildly (or morbidly) amusing info. Trying. Never said succeeding.

But some smartass just made $200 for this piece of… humor. That’s like a year, year and a half of donations for me.

Please note that they call that a “shotgun.” But close examination shows — aside from the obvious three loose tie-straps holding the pipe to the 2X4 — there’s…

No trigger.

No firing pin/striker.

No firing mechanism at all.

By that standard, I probably have a thousand bucks worth of shotguns in the garage, some assembly required.

Is it just me, or does  Sarge there look like, just maybe, it’s starting to sink in that they got took?

Well, someone made his — hi-er — point.

And two hunnerd bucks.

ETA: Say! Germany could sell San Francisco a bunch of black broomsticks and raise enough money to buy real gun for their army.

    It’s a slam fire weapon: no mechanism required. They even been manufactured by guys in prison, getting the ammo is the problem there.

      Ah; could be; I didn’t think of that. It would explain why the tie-straps are so loose.
