Who Made The Rifle Emoji Disappear?

Unicode 9.0, which will be out June 21, is one of the most highly anticipated releases in emoji history.

Photoshopped Movie Stills Replaces Guns With Selfie Sticks

Selfie sticks are inherently silly, but they somehow become even sillier when they get Photoshopped to replace guns in movie scenes. So instead of Clint Eastwood balancing his revolver in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, he’s now angling a selfie stick to take a picture of himself smoking a cigar.

Seeing A Bullet Shoot Out From A Homemade Quad Barrel Shotgun Is Unreal

Video: Wow. Let’s never ever be on this end of a gun barrel in real life, but seeing the slug shoot out from this homemade quad barrel shotgun is really, really impressive.

But US company Ideal Conceal disagrees — a double-barrelled .308 iPhone is exactly what we need to ensure our safety and freedom.


Watch A Gun Safe Get Cracked Open With Just A Paper Clip

Video: Hmm. That’s not supposed to happen like that. And yet this gun safe — a GunVault GVB1000 approved by the California Department of Justice that uses a biometric fingerprint sensor to unlock itself — can be easily opened with just a paperclip. It’s a method that simply involves tricking the bypass lock to open the latch.


Bullets That Slowly Self-Destruct Make A Surprising Amount Of Sense

A self-destructing bullet isn’t the most intuitive thing: normally, you use projectiles to destroy targets, not the other way around. But people make mistakes, bullets can travel for kilometres, and civilian casualties (or friendly fire!) are sad realities.
