Overpriced Hammer with Duct tape Mods

http://cgi.ebay.com/kingman-hammer-p...QQcmdZViewItem

The spelling mistakes in this are par for the course. But I love his detailed description of the pump hadle modification.

UP WITH DUCT TAPE!

Ok.. it is custom... but there are different level of "custom"

Good custom might have come from even epoxy and platic, then have it sanded down and powdercoated.

Bad custom usually is just duct tape. Functional, yes. Good looking, probably not. Cusom enough to gain a higher price? Most likley not.

I have to question the functionality of the "custom mod": why add rails onto something that is going to be moving all the time in order to fire the marker? Maybe a flashlight would work OK, but anything else I just can't see being worthwhile putting on it.

Of course, the price might be worth it if the duct tape is actually gold foil with a sticky backing!
