Heckler n'Clock

military time

Heckler n'Clock features revolving weapons instead of the usual pointing hands. A short barrelled gun like a Colt pistol would indicate the hour, while some sort of rifle points to the minutes.

Full sized weapons are suitable for a large clock in a big space, whilst miniaturised replicas can be used right down to a size suitable for replacing the tiny hands of wrist watches. Stupidly large version features revolving tank turrets.

Lunatic range fires blanks that act as an alarm clock, or to punctuate the hours of the day.

Might go nicely with one of these. [zen_tom, Mar 28 2011]

       [Farmer John] would be proud. Why blanks? Do the whole clinkers and range thing.   

       You'd need to reload instead of rewinding, and if you used a revolver you could only signal six times before you had to reload.

       Will it go, "Tick, Glock, Tick, Glock. .." ?

       You might want some special 24 round magazines constructed, then your clock would only be legal in certain states.

       Suggested sales slogan: "Even a stopped clock is right twice a day, but this one's dangerous all the time. !"

       would it work to have two circles representing the hour and minutes? That way you can make a pistol and rifle clamp, to which you can host your own working weapons for the clock.

       Silencers are extra I take it?   

       "uzi like Sunday morning"...   

       That's funny.

       Thought it might be a clock that stands up and irritates me every hour, on the hour...

       I'm sure there could be a cuckoo clock version of that.... a little heckler on a soap box pops out and rants on the hour.

       I had actually forgotten that I posted this! Busy weekend. Meant to make an illustration, but got too many other pieces to work on.... someday soon.
