Uncanny Factoid: Bang Your Shot

Shoot to Kill or Shoot to well Shoot! This unique camera has you covered.

 

This gun from 1938 has a mini camera attached to it. This photo was just unearthed of the gun and a few of the pictures that were with it.

 

The gun shoots a picture as the bullet is released. So far no information has surfaced about who used the gun, or if it was ever used. I hope at some point someone will let us know who, what, and where this camera was used or created for.

 

Learn Something Fun: The expression "Flash in the Pan" originates with the misfire of a flintlock or similar gun which had loose priming powder in a pan. This powder, when ignited, was supposed to fire the main charge inside the barrel through the vent or touch hole. Sometimes however, this was not achieved. The powder in the pan flashed off but the powder in the barrel remained unfired. Hence, a misfire, not the expected achievement - a flash in the pan.
