Tapping in 9mm blanks to fire crossbow bolts (VIDEO)

In a workshop somewhere in Germany, Bavarian slingshot maniac Joerg Sprave cobbled together a Rube Goldberg-style adapter to launch crossbow bolts with a pistol.

Using a steel-barreled 9mm starter pistol, Sprave comes up with a fixed-tube blowgun attachment held on with a vertical grip to channel the force of the blank into a crossbow bolt and send it flying downrange. In the end, it works, but in our opinion needs more power. Maybe some of those sweet old school 30.06 M3 rifle grenade crimp jobs for instance. Now that would be sweet.

Ho, Ho, Ho.
