Is It OK To Shoot Down Your Neighbour's Drone?

Before you decide to shoot that drone out of your backyard, there are a few important things you need to know. First of all, damaging any flying robot is a crime. It doesn’t matter if it’s crashing your pool party or watching you in your skivvies through the skylight in your master bath.


US Authorities Are Investigating A Teen Who Weaponised A Quadcopter

Earlier this month, a 14-second video entitled “Flying Gun” was posted on YouTube. It shows a flying quadcopter outfitted with a handgun firing four shots. Now, it’s become a Federal Aviation Administration investigation.


Video: The Beautiful Craftsmanship Of Making A Shotgun

Guns are dangerous but making a beautifully ornate gun is basically like unbelievably detailed artwork crossed with masterful machinery work. I love this video showing the steps it takes for a Holland & Holland shotgun to be made because it’s so cool to see all the different methods blend together.


It's Somehow Legal To 3D-Print This Poison Dart Gun

The US Army Built A Robot To Help Soldiers Shoot Guns Better

Is The Indestructible Hockey Puck Bullet Proof?

Adamantium aside, the hockey puck is the strongest material on Earth.

But is the puck bulletproof? Should we just wear hockey puck bulletproof vests now?


BOOMco's New Breakflip Looks Like A Sawed-Off Shotgun

Although it’s apparently been hard to keep the new models a secret, Mattel continues to expand its BOOMco line by leaps and bounds. The folks at Blaster Labs first spotted the new BOOMco Breakflip while it was still just a sketch at Mattel’s offices, but official product shots and info have apparently been leaked by Amazon.


Slow-Motion Footage Of Double-Barrelled Pistols Firing Bullets Is Crazy

Video: Watch as we slow down time to see this guy fire off 20 bullets in just 1.5 seconds from two double-barrelled pistols. It’s a ballistics ballet that looks almost unreal at certain angles. The top-down look of the guns firing is especially cool to see, like a first-person shooter video game view only in real life.


Nerf Hid A Surprisingly Capable Dart Gun In A Fashion Accessory

The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen helped reinforce the idea that young women don’t have to wait for a knight in shining armour to come and rescue them; they can instead pick up a weapon and be the hero themselves. But instead of reaching for a bow and arrow, Nerf’s Rebelle line wants them to reach for its new Secret Shot that hides a four-shot blaster inside a useless, but arguably fashionable, accessory.
