    "RUN, Runner!" I can't say enough about the quality of the workmanship on this prop. It's amazing and the functionality is just too cool. This has to be one of the coolest working props ever made.

    Love it! I'm glad you're happy, man. That made me smile.

    Drop me a PM when you get a moment and LMK what brand of Calcium Carbide you're running through the tank. You'll get your own 'cocktail' dialed in for what works best for you. Looks like you're off to a great start. Just PM if you need anything.

    By the way. That's excellent toggle switch discipline you've got going there!

    I think my dog just got so old she can't hear mine anymore. Poor thing used to hate the sound of these. Still fun to watch the neighbors front doors open up after a fresh charge! :lol

    No excuse! Unless you were training in the nude. Which I suppose is entirely plausible. :lol

    I can't say I ever wanted one of these......UNTIL NOW!!!
    That is one of the best functioning, accurate, working prop guns I have ever seen!!
    (sorry, the best is still the guy that made the fully automatic Pulse Rifle firing .45 rounds and a functioning shotgun to boot...that is really hard to beat!)

    My hats off to an excellent craftsman!

    PS: I can't knock him for the goofy grin...mine would be just as big and I would look alot worse without my shirt!

    Made another little video for the Treks in Sci-Fi board so Rylo could get some love...and interest, over there for this amazing prop.

    Quite a thread Necro here..... But, it deserves the be revived. Such an amazing prop. Would really really love one, but alas I live in the UK, and the law isn't too keen on replica firearms here.

    Uridium "Would really really love one, but alas I live in the UK, and the law isn't too keen on replica firearms here."

    Ah, no, that's not a replica firearm.
    According to the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006 (VCRA) paragraphs 37/38 there is no offense if the replica in question does not replicate any specific modern firearm or generic design of modern firearm (modern firearms being those manufactured after 1870). The DS gun is obviously a fantasy design and not a specific or generic modern firearm. I would call that, for customs purposes, a gas barbeque lighter.

    Roll of the dice on getting one of these through especially in todays climate.

    There have been confiscation of this prop in customs.

    Moot point as these are no longer made
