I think everyone has made the thumb and forefinger gun-to-the-head sign when someone unpleasant shows up on their caller ID. Eli and I thought it would be fun to make an actual gun handset, and it turned out to be surprisingly straightforward. No glue or powertools were required.
Even though it's not very practical, there's something so satisfying about ending a call with this handset. Pow.
Naturally, this handset works with any cell phone. You just feel like pulling the trigger more if you own an iPhone.
Step 1: Materials and Gun Disassembly
1 x Jabra BT250v bluetooth headset
1 x HFC Walther P99 look-alike airsoft gun
1 x hammer
1 x pliers
1 x Philips-head screwdriver
1 x Mana Energy Potion (that's to keep you awake)
First, disassemble the gun fully by placing the tip of the screwdriver on the pin above the trigger (not the pin connected to the safety) and tapping it out enough that you can pull it the rest of the way out with the pliers. Tap out the rest of the pins, slide the slide back, remove the faux-striker pin cover, and slip off the top half of the gun. The gun basically falls apart after that.
Step 2: Plunger Removal
Replace the spring and plastic plug
Step 4: Prepping the Bluetooth Headset
Now cut out the middle part of the rubberized portion of the bluetooth headset.
