125-Piece Metal Puzzle Can Reconfigure as a Functional Gun

GarE Maxton is a machinist in Michigan. He built this puzzle called "The Intimidator." It's composed of 125 pieces composed of 6 different metals and requires a special key to begin disassembling it. About 20 of the pieces can be reconstructed into a functional, single-shot .45 caliber handgun, pictured below. -- Link via Make | Photos: Maxton

I'm confused...are the round (cylindrical shaped) pieces of the gun hidden INSIDE the puzzle box? Also, where is the hoe for the "special key"? Can't see on Neatorama site.

They should put this into a Saw type film,

First off get two weapons engineers that have done terrible things with their skills.

Get two small rooms with only enough room in each to fit a chair,(in which the person is securely tied only leaving their hands free.) and a small desk.

The desk which both people are facing into has one puzzle each in front of them and there is a wall dividing them both. There is a small gun barrell shaped hole that the successful person can shoot through.

The room is filling with water and the two have fifteen minutes to complete the puzzle.

If you're scared about the implications something like this has on airline security I suggest you do not google the phrase "TSA security fails gun", as you will likely see that people who want to bring guns onboard a plane do not need to go through any extreme measures to do so. Security Theater is the bomb!

Hopefully he'll make a video of him firing it - should be a really cool explosion (you know - fingers flying, blood gushing, all that good stuff).
