A Batman Garter Gun For Those Gotham City Weddings

Just What You've Always Wanted

If you had shown me this picture without context I would not have been able to tell you what it was. Thankfully, that’s what the internet is for. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present, the Batman Garter Gun – for sale now! 

You can’t get this puppy in stores, oh no, it’s available on Ebay. And what exactly does a garter gun do, you ask? It shoots garters of course!

“This is a one of a kind, custom made garter gun, done to look like Batman’s grapple gun from the animated series. I made this for my wedding but sadly was not able to use it to do [sic] the garter toss,” writes the seller. Could it be because some dastardly supervillain interupted the nuptials, kidnapping the father of the bride??? The seller, whose username is “attackbat,” (what else?) insists his blushing bride was totally into the idea but that it just didn’t make it to the reception. I’ll admit, if I was marrying a dude who made a Batman garter gun for our wedding, I might not make it to the reception either if you know what I mean.

“The gun is based off a bike tube inflater that uses CO2 cartridges (threaded or not). It fits a standard size garter and shoots it about as far as you can flick it on a full charge. It’s made from an aluminum project box, pvc tubing, bike valve and some sheet metal. Looks cool, sounds cool, feels solid,” he writes.

Attackbat says it can shoot a garter around 12 feet “but it can shoot anything you put in it.” I don’t even want to know what they did at the bachelor party. I can totally see Dick putting this together for Bruce’s nuptials (to me!), Bruce giving him that narrowing-eye look and Dick putting it back in his pocket and looking all sullen.

The garter gun is currently going for $20 with four more days left to bid. (No brides were harmed in the making and/or testing of this garter gun)
