A trigger lock taken to the extreme

    Like most of the gun community, here at TFB we are not fans of trigger locks (locks built into a gun, not locks designed to secure a firearm). They are just one more thing that could go wrong and prevent you using your gun at a time when your life depends on it. The¬†Maxton’s Art Gallery have taken this concept to the extreme by creating a gun, named The Intimidator, that is itself both a lock and a puzzle.

    Not only does the puzzle contain the gun parts, but ammunition as well. Three .45 Caliber bullets, black powder pellets and 209 shotgun primers are locked inside the puzzle.

    The gallery does not list a price for this pistol, but their other puzzles sell for over $1,000, so I would expect this to sell for a fair bit more.
