Gunmaker made a real-life NES Zapper handgun

‘Keep your guns locked up from children, it’s common sense’

A Texan gun manufacturer has been criticised for modifying a Glock handgun to look like a NES zapper (yup, that plastic gun thing we used to shoot virtual ducks and clay pigeons back in the day).

Precision Syndicate insists the gun – which it shared pictures of via its social media channels – is a one-off designed for a friend and was never intended to be mass produced.

After thousands of complaints, the manufacturer made this statement on statement on Facebook:

“In light of the ‘Nintendo Glock’ drama, we feel that the media and our fans need to know that this firearm will not be mass produced nor will it ever be.

“This is a one off custom build for a friend of ours. Do to the thousands of emails and messages we have received in the past two days we have been unable to contact everyone in a timely manner, please be patient we will get to you as soon as possible. Thank you all for your support! 

“Oh, and please.. keep your guns locked up and away from children, it’s common sense.”

Make sure you check out the Facebook comments for fabulously coherent arguments like: “Haters can get shot in the face with it. I don’t care lol”.
