Load up on guns, bring your friends

Category: Life

Okay, so, I enjoy guns, guns as thing. I like the sound a rifle makes when it’s cocked, I like the sound a revolver makes when one pulls the hammer back, I like muzzle-flash, I love the cracking sound machine-guns make… Aesthetically, I love everything about guns. I don’t like how guns are a thing people use to end other people’s lives, in a perfect world we’d only use guns to put down zombies.

Anyway, I have this Things to Do list that really isn’t getting done. I’m thirty, I’m old, the list needs to get moving again. To that end, one of my things is to fire a gun with an assistive technology switch. I have no idea how this would work. Would the switch connect directly to the gun? Would the gun be fired by way of software running on my MacBook Air that I’d access by way of my NeuroSwitch? I don’t know.

Do any of you know how I might fire a gun with a switch? I really don’t care what kind of gun I’m firing, I just want to fire at some target until said gun is empty. Can anybody help? I live in Tampa, I especially totally welcome local help.

    My boyfriend says he can totally make something. He can build robots, program computers, AND he knows his guns, and he wants to make a robotic mount guided by webcam. I just sent you an email.

    i work in the film industry and have asked 2 of my special effect friends (lars larson and kai shelton). this is something done all the time in the movie world…. i read the other comment though and it sounds like someone else is working on it. please let me know if that doesn’t work out and i’ll put you in touch with my friends…

    Well, if the hardware already exists, it’s probably easier than for my bf to design and build a mount from scratch. On the other hand, he can totally code the back end of It to make it compatible with your Neuroswitch. We’re excited about the challenge though.

    Waiting to hear back from you. Is your email the same one listed on this site?

    I’ve have a photographic camera that you could shot with a software, the 5D, Canon, can be controlled by computer… but no guns… and also I live in a galaxy far far away called Brazil.

    Why not have someone hold their hand over yours while you (they) pull the trigger, then you can experience the full feeling and the kickback from the gun?

    Mindy: No. The point is to have full control over the trigger.
