Okay, this gun sure resembles the toy gun controller from Nintendo’s game Duck Hunt! For those of us who grew up playing this game, this brings back great childhood memories. The fantastic thing about this gun is that we could use this weapon to hunt real wild ducks. Same gun and no screen, but if you aim right, you can take home your catch.
Now, before we get over ourselves, we should know that this beautiful creation has in some way or another broken some copyright infringement laws. I mean, you can’t have a real gun that has the Nintendo brand name slapped unto it.
A machine prototyping company from Texas called Precision Syndicate LLC, first displayed the gun to the public via the famous social media website, Facebook. Some people have frowned at this saying that manufacturing guns that look like toy guns, will only lead to manhandling and the disasters associated with it. Although I understand their fears, they have not put into perspective that those who played the Nintendo game, are grown up adults who probably have guns already. This fun isn’t going to attract the young ones of today. Instead, only those who have had amazing times with this gun already would try to get it.
But the opposition to this kind of gun keeps growing as concerns grow over the ownership of firearms that resemble toys and so I would advise against having your hopes up. This is going to be a big let down to those of us who enjoyed duck hunting with our toy Nintendo guns. But you could try to relive those fantastic moments when we played duck hunting with our Nintendo toy gun.
