Just beware of any bears with a bald rear end. They may come a knocking looking to even the score on someone since John Candy isn’t around anymore. I love the use of materials…....How can I get my swmbo to let me have one?

So what did old Jack say about it?

Hey, I wonder if my kid would mind if we butchered up his Rem. 1100 12 Ga.? Well, it might be more fun as a gun than as a lamp!

Nice job!

I like it! I bet you had a “BLAST” making it. Sure sounds that way.

Thank ya’ll.
Dan, Jack hasn’t seen it yet. I show off everything here first.
Now I’m going to be on a constant lookout for rifles and shotguns that aren’t shootable anymore.

Yep, you won no doubt about it. That is a very cool lamp.

Excellent! A cool thing is that you did not have to drill a lamp cord hole – it’s already there!

Wonderful creativity – it should impress your neighbor. I’m looking forward to his reaction.

Your office needs a more military type guns.
I’d love to make one of these out of something like a gutted M16 or something similar.
Yes, that is a strong hint. I’d make it and get photos. I’d ship it back as a complete lamp. I don’t know how legal that would be though.

I’d have to make it out of a gun that was no longer usable for its intended purpose, otherwise I’d find it just WRONG

I agree DY. It would have to be a gun that could not be repaired.

The shotgun in this project is one that Jack got out of a garbage can. It was already almost completely gutted of all internal parts.

Nice lamp William. I guess you could call yourself an expert in firearms illumination. I would make one just like it if I found a cheap donar shotgun. In the past I have made a couple of floor lamps using real cast iron fire hydrants. The company I work for produces parts for a well known corporation that uses those parts in elecrical generators that go in fighter jets. I have used some of those that were scrap or defective parts in lamps. Anyway, nice job, thanks for sharing.

Oh man you just give me an idea. I know where an old fire hydrant is in a man’s barn. I wonder if he’ll part with it.
