Video: Mini Crossbow Shoots Flaming Mini Crossbow Bolts

By Chad Love

Last year at about this time we posted a story about a diminutive piece of pocket artillery called the mini cannon. It was a real, working gun that used  gunpowder, tiny steel balls and  what looked like firecracker fuses to wreak havoc on all sorts of common items. Well, the guy who made it has been busy since last year, and  now he's back with something equally cool...the mini crossbow (hat tip to Suburban Bushwacker for the find)

Which one would you rather have, the cannon or the crossbow?

I'd have to go with the crossbow, since I'm a bit of an archery fanatic. Really impressed with how quick that thing is. I would have to go "big game" barn mouse hunting with it.

You have to admire the engineering and manufacturing skill. After that it is just plain cool! It shows you that we are really only 12 in our minds!

I'd go with the crossbow, for the same rodent-related reasons as ckRich

Put small animal targets up in your house and sneak around and stalk them and take them down with a mini crossbow would be fun.

i must say they both look awesome, but if i could not have both of them, i think i would have to choose the cross bow, because it has more versatility and applications, as shown by the video.

If you can lose the gold and silver and sell it for $19.95, I'd buy it.

Which do you think would be better for my landladies cats who think my hallway is their toilet? The pointy one or the flaming one?

Here kitty, kitty, kitty. I've got something for you.
