If foley artists make gun-noises that sound like movie gun noised by setting off bangers in a bin, could guns not be made to sound as the washed majority think they sound simply by puncturing a hole in the bottom of a metal bin and sticking the the fore of the gun through the hole, the aft (including the handle) remaining outwith and behind the bin. When fired, the binchamber may or may not create a large echoey booming noise, which will sound boss. This approach has the added bonuses of giving the wielder something to catch enemy bullets in and of making the firearm easier to disguise (as a bin).

       //bangers:firecrackers//   

       As in the traditional English dish known over here as “firecrackers and mashed potatoes”.

       The shoulder holster is going to be a bit lumpy under your coat.

       //outwith:outside// Nobody ever uses "outwith", except possibly the Scots. We can use "without" to mean outside, but this is considered archaic.

       I'm considering approaching Kelly Clarkson for her jiggle tights.

       Anyone carrying two or more of these weapons would be bin laden.

       In terms of devices used to manufacture sound effects for movies, I'm afraid it's bin dun. Firing a gun into a specially tuned sounding chamber is currently a widely used technique.

       I am pondering the concept. Instead of the muzzle stuck unseemingly thru bin butt, why not have the muzzle flare out in a tubaesque fashion to binnish diameter?   

       Infact if the gun were at an angle to the tuba cone, the cone could be rifled such that the bullet traced out the entire surface area of the tuba along greater and greater circles. Sort of like those funnels one can roll coins into except reversed, with bullets and loud. It might be hard to determine where along the outer circumference the bullet (actually a Minie ball would be better) would emerge and so this gun would be best used under circumstances where there are many things about that you would be happy to have get shot.

       A fitting instrument for the Airborne Regimental Marching Band, then.

       Is that something like a rum ball? I got really, really sick on rum balls one christmas. Also, I hate gin.
