Jonathan Alberico (deviantART alias Macabre151) has built two firing models of steampunk inspired weapons, Doris and Black Betty.

Doris” is a rifle, or, to be more appropriate, a blunderbuss that can be loaded with either a magazine of four ping-pong balls or a barrel-full of confetti.

Also in Alberico’s deviantART gallery is his “Black Betty,” a handgun that fires two .40 caliber balls.  If you don’t have any projectiles for it, it can also simply ignite flash paper.  Which allows it to shoot fire.

The video is after the jump.  What are you waiting for?

The best news about this for some?  Doris is for sale on eBay.
