Bad Ammo: Flowershell Load Blasts Seeds into the Ground

By The Editors

Here's your dumb idea of the day: the Flowershell, a shotgun shell that disperses seeds.

According to the creators, it's a standard 12-gauge shell with a reduced amount of gunpowder and a shot cup full of seeds (12 different varieties from sunflower to carnation) instead of lead. The idea is that you go around blasting these things into the ground to grow flowers.

Don't try this at home, but if you do, make sure to avoid rocks or other hard surfaces that are sure to cause ricochets.

It actually might come in handy so scare away pests that you really don't want to kill; say squirrels in the yard, deer out of season, etc. With a reduced load of powder I don't think that the seeds would penetrate flesh at say 30 - 40 feet but would make a loud noise and sting. Just my idea.

Not a bad idea if you are trying to get some areas planted, however I would shoot them up in the air over a field and let the wind carry them throughout the area.

They should make a line of sportsman's shells, loaded with food plot seeds. Just kidding, I think it would look funny to see someone shooting a flowerbed with a 12 gauge. These shells are a good idea but not practical at all.

Just imagine your neighbor's face when you plant a garden like this. Just don't do this in the city limits because the cops don't shoot seeds!
