Tar and Feather Gun Looks Like Something Wile E. Coyote Might Buy from Acme

 |  |  |  August 8, 2011


Sure, you could always shoot paintballs at your mortal enemies, but if you’re looking for a way to really make a mess of things, there’s not many better ways than with some good old fashioned tar and feathers. While you could deliver this horribly sticky concoction to your victim using a strategically placed bucket of tar and an old feather pillow, I think I like this weapon better.

Self-proclaimed tinkerer PenfoldPlant created this evil weapon capable of launching not only tar and feathers, but a variety of other messy things to make your victims suffer the most severe embarrassment (and clean-up consequences) possible.

The thing has a quick-reload mechanism, which lets you fill up with various projectiles such as shaving cream, flour, and other messy substances in secods. It’s built from PVC, plywood, various glues, magnets, wire and other goodies, and propels its ammo using compressed air charged by an old bicycle pump. Here’s a quick clip showing the Tar and Feather Gun (or TFG) in action on a surprisingly docile intern victim.

If you want to try and make one of these contraptions for yourself, head on over to Instructables, where Penfold has documented the entire build process in gory detail.
