This is the worst looking gun I've ever seen

This has to be the most ridiculous looking gun I've ever seen. I came across this picture today.

The artist was too embarrassed to sign his real name.

At least it was only a Bersa.

See what can happen if we don't keep our guns safely locked up.

I think it's kind of jaunty. To each his own.

At second glance, while I hate the gun, I sort of like the cartridges. Probably would make a mess of the chamber and bore, though.

It doesn't look to have a barrel from my perspective. I think its non-functioning art

I'm with Skans, I like the cartridges. Thats the kind of gun you'd carry on an Easter egg hunt.

Sort of gives a different meaning to keeping guns out of the wrong hands.

That’s individuality!

A term used in the video/movie Bird Man of Alcatraz. I believe the prisoner Robert Strauss says to the then warden that his prisons take away a persons individuality.

If I let my Bersa Thunder 380 see that picture, I believe it would cry.

It gave me flashbacks to Afghanistan.

Some buses/vehicles are painted like that there. Ugly for some, but art in true form for others....I guess.
