Tired of losing the war on the home front and at the office, the man behind Asciimation decided to take his styrofoam and rubber arsenal to the next level. Rather than just buying one of Nerf’s battery, belt-fed, hi-power options, he built his own sidearm from the ground up. We can’t imagine designing a handgun (even if it is only for Nerf darts) is an easy task, and judging by the parts (most hand milled) and MacGuyvering (the plastic washers started as a cutting board) required, it wasn’t. Suddenly that beer bong crafted from Home Depot parts just doesn’t seem as impressive. Check out the video below and Asciimation for more cool projects (like a jet engine beer cooler) you’ll probably never attempt – but can definitely drool over.
