Crowd control.

I still don't really have much to say. I'm never sure what to post about so for now I'll give you another improvised zombie weapon. These fun toys are called nut-busters :) and you can make them with shotgun shells and a cardboard tube with some cardboard fins attached. On the primer end of the shell is glued a small cork with a hole drilled through it. A roofing nail should fit the hole snugly enough to stay in place but loose enough to be driven into the primer upon impact.

Since the shell is not focused by a gun barrel, it won't cause the same amount of damage. However if it goes off between a guy's legs he'll be singing soprano. These are most effective when thrown singularly, or by the handful into the air over a crowd. The weight of the shell and aerodynamics of the fins cause them to head straight downwards. These things usually come as quite a surprise and the threat of more is enough to disperse most crowds.

Not only will these go off when they hit the ground, but they can also be set off on a person's head or shoulder. At night it would be pretty much impossible to figure out where they're coming from.


Cliff notes: see diagram, figure it out.

  6. Those look very interesting. Decapitating people's junk should be a crime, if they're alive of course.
