    Hi everybody!!!

    While making armor the other day with my buddy, A'den, I realized that I was a bit short in the weapons department...meaning none. I proceeded to think of how to remedy said problem. The next day, while playing my Wii, I devised a solution!! (Choir in the backround and shiny lights blaring)

    Wait for it...

    Wait for it...

    AN NES LIGHT ZAPPER!!!! Yes, just an old accessory to an even older system that had not been used by anyone for over twenty years!

    If you don't have an NES Zapper laying in a back closet collecting dust, fear not! There is a wonderful store called Play'N'Trade that specializes in retro gaming system merchandise. The Zapper is only $4.99!!! A cheap way to complete an empty holster.

    Here are some pics of my process of morphing this child's toy into a weapon fit for a warrior!

    1. The original gun...


    2. Parts removal...



    PS sorry about the color change. A'den took the wrong picture for me. But I suppose I'll let him live another day...

    Anyways...part 3: trigger removal...



    4. Painted...in A'den's colors...


    5. Battle worthy!!!


    6. Original product VS finished...


    I will post pictures of mine a little later on. Until then... do what you will.

    Demagol out...

    The "Zapper" idea has been used before dude, just do a "search" and you'll find a few threads about it. Yours turned out good and is still a good idea for a cheap version.

    Reviving this just a little, haha. ESB Fetts have used the Zapper for years as their Sidearms.
