... is the .50 Cal BMG Windrunner M96, manufactured by EDM Arms in Redlands, California. According to the web site, the rifle can be "assembled, without any tools, in less than 1 minute." Pretty nifty. I wouldn't mind shooting one, to tell you the truth. It's also perfectly legal to own, which some have issues with. If you're considering purchasing one, I'd like to share some sage advice from the Fifty Caliber Shooters Association, Inc. at www.FCSA.org :
The decision to purchase a .50 caliber should be given careful consideration. .50 caliber rifles are expensive and range in price from $2500.00 to more than $7000.00. The sport of competitive shooting also carries with it a commitment of significant financial obligation with all the ancillary support equipment that is necessary.
Duly noted, FSCA. Thank you. I'd like to now present you with something different:
... is a set of lawn darts. It's not the famous "Jarts" brand because I was unable to find a picture of a Jart on the Internet. Unlike the .50 caliber Windrunner M96 (which, arguably, could take down a commercial aircraft), lawn darts are illegal in this country. They were banned in the 1980s by the Consumer Product Safety Commission because, if you're a complete motherfucking idiot, you might throw one up in the air and hurt yourself (or someone else) when it comes back down.
