8 Gun Products I Thought Were April Fool’s Jokes…But Aren’t

You won’t believe number 9!

This one weird trick gives you unlimited ammo!

Gun instructors HATE him!

Ok, got those out of my system.  Here’s some dumb gun products that I thought were April Fool’s jokes but really aren’t.  So you can actually buy them for the lulz.

Then we’ll end with some great April Fool’s stuff of 2017.

1. Pistol Knife Bayonet

When you’re out of ammo and there’s still threats based on your exaggerated scanning procedure.  This pistol knife bayonet ($20) has got you covered.

But hopefully you didn’t stab yourself drawing it out in the first place.

2. The Alternative

Actual product that has the right intentions…but man, I can see stuff going sideways.

The Alternative (real name) goes over your gun and uses the force of the first shot to propel a metal ball into the threat.

Just uh…make sure you don’t shoot twice!

3.  Tufforce Railed Muzzle Brake

4.  Zombie X Chainsaw

Got $800 burning in your pocket, get the Zombie X Chainsaw attachment for your rifle.  It’s a real battery powered chainsaw for when the inevitable zombie apocalypse comes around.

5. Mission Critical Baby Carrier

I’m totally getting the Mission Critical Baby Carrier ($180) when I have kids.

You can’t put a price on being tacticool.

6. Manly Innovations Magazine Bayonet

Somehow knives and pistols shouldn’t mix…

The “DED Blade attachment is a last ditch tool, NOT INTENDED FOR USE AT THE RANGE.”

Of course.

Get yours now at Manly Innovations ($150).

7.  Brick Camo

8.  Vortex Bullet Cam

Vortex in conjunction with Hornady bring you the Bullet Cam ($99.99 for 10 rounds).  Should be the latest video on their FB page.  Kudos for the time and effort!

    The baby carrier just didn't impress me. I don't see how it's much different than the 'Baby Bjorn' carrier that has been around since the 1990's. Any of us pewpew folk could have spruced that up to give some REAL tacticool flair. Whether it's mounting a tac-light, some small polymer armor sections, or just some tactical storage pouches for ammo (or wipes I guess)...whatever,.. it would be easy to "Magpul" it out. Eric, I feel for you. I read the California legislation article. It was painful. But well written. Good job explaining it in non-legalese.

    Sure, that "Mission Critical Baby Carrier" IS impressive...but if you're going that route, don't neglect the awesome majesty of the "Tactical Baby Gear Changing Mat." ;-) (Suggested tag line: "Your number one option for neutralizing number two." Yeah, I just made that up--no charge, guys.)

      Thanks! I needed a laugh after writing the CA Assault Weapon Laws article.
