Every once in a while, you come across a product that makes you wonder where they came up with the name. Sometimes it’s an interesting story, sometimes it just leaves you perplexed. Case in point: UncommonCarry’s Ghost Hunter series crossbows. What do crossbows have to do with ghost hunting? We haven’t a clue. But really; this is a mini crossbow that shoots toothpicks. Who cares?
The Ghost Hunter mini crossbow is handmade of stainless steel and comes equipped with an infrared light (seems like overkill for ghost hunting or a crossbow, but, again, coolness factor.) The crossbow has a range of 10–15 meters. Of course, it goes without saying that you shouldn’t point the crossbow at or shoot the toothpicks at any humans or pets (if you want to do that, you might try the suggested Q-tips instead—better yet, stick to inanimate targets, and, evidently, ghosts).
If you’re being haunted by a ghost, spirit, or poltergeist, you might need something a bit more powerful than a toothpick-shooting mini crossbow. But, then again, something this cool might just scare that specter off.
