This Tack Gun Shoots Ordinary Push Pins at High Speed

Laser and DIY project enthusiast Patrick Priebe has designed his very own sniper rifle tack gun that shoots ordinary push pins instead of bullets at a high velocity.

The project reportedly took Priebe approximately 50 hours to complete, and is essentially a blowgun that has been given an extreme makeover. The blow dart tube serves as the tack gun's barrel and is attached to an aluminium body. The push pins are loaded by hand into the gun's barrel and pushed in with a bolt action lever. The real innovation comes from a compressed air canister connected to a bicycle tire inflater that blasts a high-powered gust of air when the trigger is pulled.

The unique DIY project also features a laser sight and a high powered scope for aiming making this blow gun on steroids all the more intimidating.
