Good news for green thumb gun enthusiasts: there’s a shotgun cartridge for that.
The seashells are 12 gauge standard shotgun ammunition (0.729 in, 18.5 mm) loaded with one of twelve different types of seeds that can be blown into the ground.
The ammunition is created by a Scandinavian design lab run by Per Cromwell, who told The Huffington Post that his invention is 100% real and the inventory is out of stock until February.
There is no indication that the method works – the videos (below) only show the seeds thrown into the soil – but it does seem plausible.
The biggest problem is that you would shoot a shotgun in your yard.
As you can see, the shell contains gunpowder and a primer, making it live ammunition.
The company declares: “Disclaimer: The seeds taken from The Flower Shell can cause serious damage. The shells should be regarded as real live ammunition. “
Like a Commentator Gizmodo Remarks:
“Full Disclosure: I own a gun and a member of the NRA. Having said that, it’s a breathtaking bad idea; hope this is really a joke … Unloading a gun in a populated area is illegal in most places and probably will get you arrested. A nervous neighbor will see you wield a shotgun, call the cops and you’ll be there, taking on a SWAT team in the midst of your chrysanthemums. “
Nonetheless, the gardening gun is one thing.
