The world's deadliest magic trick, now funnier than ever! With only a couple of ordinary props, all of which fit in your pocket, you can fill the whole stage with magic, comedy, and suspense. Sure, bullets are frightening, but today, money goes so fast it's scary!

A signed $100 dollar bill magically travels from the spectator's "hand gun," through the air, popping a balloon along the way, and the magician catches the bill in his teeth! You get to mess with your audience's minds, bullet catch style, without risking your own brains!

• Any currency! Any denomination!
• Best bang for your buck since the canon!
• Resets in seconds! Easy to perform!
• 100% less death than the original bullet catch!

A spectator with a $100 bill is chosen from the audience. He or she signs their bill and the magician loads it into a "hand gun" (the spectator's hand). The spectator, now armed, cocks the gun and aims it at the magician's face twenty feet across the stage.

The magician inflates a balloon and holds it in his teeth. After a dramatic moment of pause, the "gun" is "fired" and the balloon pops! There, wrapped in a few shards of balloon still held in the magician's teeth, is the spectator's signed $100 bill! The spectator opens the gun chamber - their hand - and the $100 bill they were holding is gone!

The $100 Billet Catch comes with complete instructions, a supply of balloons, and a special gimmick. Because the bill is wrapped in pieces of balloon, money never touches your mouth directly. Included in the instructions are a series of patter lines and jokes to make this a centerpiece to any show. A simple trick that balloons into a bang!


Sounds cool and interesting ... but can anybody tell me about -
"... the magician loads it into a "hand gun" (the spectator's hand). The spectator, now armed, cocks the gun and aims it at the magician's face twenty feet across the stage."
What is a hand gun (the spectator's hand)???
Maybe I can't understand the English meaning of it? Is the spectator throwing the bullet or someting?

Yes, according to the ad the "hand gun" is the spectators hand. Sounds like a cute effect that could play very well. And it is not expensive at all.

Aaron Smith is a fool.

He does not understand business. He is selling a more or less original stage routine with a classic theme complete with alternative handling and around twenty original jokes.
Something that other dealers rightly would sell for 100 bucks. He simply does not understand the value of an original routine that packs in your pocket and plays on a stage and
has this potential for suspense and surprise.

If he should chime in I want to ask him about loading in smaller children's hands.

Is the signed bill inside the balloon?
Is that the missing sentence of the presentation?

When it pops there is no balloon and no inside anymore.

The balloon is held in your mouth (acting as the plate that gets shattered by the bullet in normal bullet catch effect). When the helper "shoots" the "gun", the balloon pops. Inside the broken balloon held between your teeth is the signed bill, basically penetrating the balloon and you catch it between your teeth. (The bill is actually appears in the balloon). The spectator can then take the bill from between your teeth or you can drop it into a dish the spectator is holding.

Actually a funny and cute routine.

I ordered this right away as they were adding a pair of safty goggles free with order. This adds to the comedy effect I believe. I hope they continue to provide them with all orders. Inexpensive plastic but nice looking pair of goggles.

This also helps with the fear of a balloon popping so close to your eyes. If not provided go out and get a pair.

Emailed them and asked what happened after 3 weeks since I received a shipping confirmation just a couple of days after the order. The response was fast and they promised me to look into it and resend another shipment if the first one was lost. One week later I had the package in the mail. Smile

I haven't actually had time to look at the $100 BC but I just wanted to let you know that I am now a satisfied customer and that MD handled my case in a great way.
