|Gunning for a melody: You can play a song by|
shooting at these targets.
The video at the bottom of this post shows a guy playing "The Star Spangled Banner" by shooting at targets that have different musical tones when they are hit by bullets.
I have to admit the guy's a damn good shot to pull this off.
Of course, the loaded part is, first of all the gun is loaded. Second of all, is, boy, are people going to have different reactions to this! The gun enthusiasts will say YEAH! Second Amendment, baby!!
Some of the people less enthusiastic about guns will roll their eyes at the mix of patriotism and guns.
Of course, as BoingBoing notes, you can do other songs as well, with revamped lyrics like this Smokey Robinson parody:
If you feel like lovin' guns
If you're independent
I second that amendment.
For those of you who love both guns and music, you're in luck! You can buy these musical targets from MusicalTargets.com.
As they business tagline says: Your source for armory harmony!
The targets are labeled with the notes, say "C" or "D" and you can shoot out a song with the targets at your own practice range.
Just be sure to set this up where it's legal to shoot guns, and nobody will get hurt by a bullet in case you miss. Hey, nobody's perfect.
A Major 8 Chime Set costs just $249 and a full Double Major 16 Deluxe Set, pictured in this blog post, goes for the low, low price of $600. Operators are standing by! (Not really, but you can go to their Web site.)
Without further ado, I present you the explosive gun shot National Anthem.
