We have talked before about some ridiculous old-timey guns. However, we are moving on from just ridiculous guns. We want to share with you some guns that were fathomed in the throes of utter nonsense, guns that were invented for the sole purpose of being the stupidest contraption to ever launch a projectile.
1) The Chainsaw Bayonet
The traditional bayonet was useful to an extent. If you ran out of ammo in a firefight, you could have one last attempt at victory by throwing yourself at your opponent in an attempt to impale them with your gun. As an added bonus, you’ll be able to cut food stuffs at a slightly farther distance compared to a regular knife.
Well, someone decided that they didn’t just want to be able to cut stuff with their gun, they wanted to be able to chainsaw stuff with their gun. Which makes sense to us, because people these days don’t have time to defend their home from a violent invasion and trim the trees in their yard.
We are glad this thing isn’t actually being manufactured, and it was just the demented experiment of this guy who apparently thinks he lives in a video game.
For your amusement, here is a video of the chainsaw AR-15 in action.

2) The Gun Katar
We present to you the rare and unheard of gun katar. A katar is known as a push dagger: a blade you use by holding its H-shaped frame with your fist, presumably with the intention of cutting some stuff.

Now, the Katar by itself may seem like a somewhat reasonable weapon to invent – it cuts stuff and looks pretty cool. Today, weapons like these have lost their usability in battle, and have been replaced by more useful weapons like guns. But, there was someone out there who refused to let the usefulness of the katar be lost to history, so he slapped a gun on it and gave it an incredibly creative name – the gun katar.

They didn’t mess around with only one barrel either, they went right ahead and slapped two awesome golden barrels on there. The bonus of the gun katar is that if you are fast enough, you could shoot a bullet, then cut the bullet in half to make two bullets, which totally makes sense.
3) The Davey Crockett Nuclear Bazooka
If you thought that the gun katar was crazy, you’re in for a face-punching surprise.
During the cold war, the american army developed to the most ludicrous bomb-launching monstrosity ever conceived. This absurd weapon, called the Davy Crockett, doesn’t just shoot a massive explosive round. No, this one-man-operated stationary bazooka-thing could launch a nuclear warhead 1.7 miles away.
As you can imagine, aiming this thing was a bit of a problem, but this thing wasn’t designed for trivial matters like aiming. But that didn’t really matter, because it would emit an instantly lethal dose of radiation within a radius of 150 meters, and likely kill anything within 400 meters. So it didn’t exactly require sniper-precision, and as long as you can get it within 400 meters of your target, mission accomplished. That is, if your mission is to leave behind a quarter-mile section of nuclear fallout wasteland and dead everything.
