Any Star Wars fans out there? You may get a kick out of this one. Battle Arms Development has brought some fun-guns to the SHOT show. These are Star Wars themed ARs are fun to look at. How do they shoot? I’m not sure. But there’s no reason to think they wouldn’t be amazing blasters. They’re light, though. So light that I thought they were models at first. We’re going to do another feature on the BAD ARs, so stay tuned for that, but I thought I’d put in this plug now for the blasters.
Anyone who knows much about me knows I like my Star Wars trivia. I taught a Star Wars themed class in my previous life as a college professor. Seeing the cultural pinnacle of my youth so adeptly blended with my current fixation on guns is a bit trippy. But I’m not complaining.
And the guns are proving popular. I didn’t find them at the SHOT Show until late Thursday afternoon. And then they had to be pointed out to me. I understand why I missed them. The booth is small, and there were at least 30 people fighting to get in to see the guns. And the helmets. The helmets were getting a lot of attention, especially from those of us who recognize the new Episode 7 Storm Trooper design.
