Shotgun Bat

  (+8)(+8)
(+8)
  [vote for,
against]

A metal pole with a series of five closely placed holes, running from the tip to the middle of the bat, facing the same direction, and containing shotgun shells. A single shell is fired every time the bat impacts on something, going to the next chamber down the bat in succession with each strike.

Now even the worst melee combatant is now a death-spewing murder-machine, provided he doesn't hold it the wrong way and keeps his grip once it fires. Plus, the recoil can be used to get you back into your wind-up position for the next blow!

       Don't use it to tap the dirt off your cletes as some ballplayers are in the habit of doing.

       I would watch a film with this weapon in it, provided the film was not a documentary.

       There is, as it happens, a South American species called the "Pistol bat", because when it hangs upside down to roost, it actually looks quite a lot like a flintlock pistol suspended from its muzzle.

       Impossible, when europeans arrived in South America there were no firearms to be found there.

       I suspect that the name is somewhat more recent than the bat itself, and also more recent than the first european arrivals in South America.

       So recent that you made it up just now?
rcarty, Sep 28 2011
  

       Would I do such a thing?

       Perhaps you would like to make an entry in the Encyclopaedia of Life. Link provided.

       I _am_ an entry in the Encyclopaedia of Life.

       No, he's not, he's a Shotgun Bat delivery man/victim.
