The above photo is what you recall from your childhood, specifically when playing video games like Duck Hunt, Hogan's Alley or Wild Gunman. And with 90's nostalgia being at an all-time high, the Nintendo Zapper is making a loud comeback...only this one doesn't require a wire.
Real life duck hunting just became way more fun with the new "Nintendo Glock" and a lot of people are pretty excited. First of all, it looks almost identical to the damn Nintendo Zapper that was introduced in 1985 along with the video game Duck Hunt. Second, it's NOT a Nintendo Zapper because it shoots real fucking bullets. WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED IN LIFE?!
But a lot of people are finding one...big problem however. They think that since the Nintendo Glock looks SO much like the Nintendo Zapper, kids will think it's something that's okay to point at their friends or at anything in general because kids shouldn't be handling guns anyway. Precision Syndicate LLC, the company behind the gun's creation has issued a statement after receiving more than a few emails deeming the gun's design to be extremely irresponsible.
"In light of the “Nintendo Glock” drama, we feel that the media and our fans need to know that this firearm will not be mass produced nor will it ever be. This is a one off custom build for a friend of ours. Do [sic] to the thousands of emails and messages we have received in the past 2 days we have been unable to contact everyone in a timely manner, please be patient we will get to you as soon as possible."
Syndicate has now pissed off TWO different sides of the aisle. One, they made a fun gun design that everyone wants BUT they only made one in existence for some "friend". Well that's dumb, thanks for the blue balls, PS. Second, they admittedly only made one BUT NOW EVERYONE HAS THE IDEA AND WILL JUST GO MAKE THEIR OWN. Looks like the company behind the Nintendo Glock can't win for trying on this one.
My question is what kid even knows what a Nintendo Zapper even is anymore for them to think it's a toy? If there's one thing Die Hard has taught me, it's that orange and red on guns means "toy", so one could see that being a possible issue.
Do you think this gun is irresponsible or do you think Precision Syndicate should make a ton more?
