I have a couple different paintball guns, do I have to buy the specific gun?
Also can the gun be used nomally when not used for the trick?

Love Magic, Love Paintball would be an awesome addition.
Never forget to dream!

For those that live in the US, try looking for a gun called Predator by Palco sports. I saw these at Bass Pro shops, and I bought one here in the midwest at Theisens (farm type store). $14.95.

A week and a half ago Alan sent me this manuscript.
I didn't want to write a review because well, I kind of wanted to keep it to myself.

ok I'm just kidding about my selfishness, but for real now, I don't know why Alan is selling it at this price. It is a bargin to say the least.

If you are familiar with Mr.Rorrison's works, you know he has a taste for dangerous effects with the creativity to match.
What you are going to get is a practical, commercial, humorous Bullet Catch that retains its natural suspense and inherent danger (in the audiences' eyes). But reality is it is 100% safety proof. Unless you seriously froze on stage, I can't see anyone "mess" up on this trick.

While I have yet to take this on stage, I can see its potential.
Furthermore, Alan is a working magician and this has been his closer for the last five years (correct me if I'm wrong Alan).
So Folks if you want something so you can perform in front of your mirrors, stay away from this product, or just stay away from magic in general... magicians don't perform for mirrors after all.

But if you want a closer to your show, a closer within a beyond reasonable price????? I highly suggest it.

Do you think this would be a good effect for a school talent show? *next year...long time to practice* I would of course warn my Dean that there is a "gun" and what not. How have people been doing this this...looks very interesting. Is there a demo?

I found one in a small farm store in the midwest. They actually had two colors - blue and red. At first I thought they looked kinda hokey, but thought I could work this in. It kind of brings a laugh with the danger build, and then seeing the gun. But when that sucker kicks out the paint ball and splat - it takes on another dimension. The crowd gets a lot more interested and its an excellent effect.

I like this a lot.

Hi,
I like this a lot , I want to use it in cabaret I have noticed that when the ball hits the target and splats the remains of the ball fly off several feet , I am slightly worried about it going further than antisipated and hitting the audience , has anyone come up with a way to reduce the bounce back?

Sounds almost too good to be true but with all the good reviews about this Catch I think I'll have to give it a whirl before spending huge bucks on the other expensive one currently out there. 2 Questions though:
1) Can the gun be handed out before the "deadly" shot to have the spectator take one test shot to "prove" the gun is not gimmicked..in his mind at least.
2)Any place I can download this without Paypal...just use another payment system?

Thanks.

I have set up a brief case to fire the test shot. I modified it a bit to have 'sides', which keeps that splatter in check.

This has been going over quite well, thanks Alan!!

This is very tasty indeed!

I often click the "buy now" button on downloadable effects with trepidation but Alan's stuff is the "bizzo" and Catch is NOT as disappointer. I will be ordering my pistol this week and my wife will be full of woeful utterances by the weekend. Worry not my dear, people will only be firing a paintball gun at my face. It’s OK ‘cause I’ll catch the projectile in my teeth…it’ll be fine! Tee hee! See what happens when magic comes from Scotland? Economical, engaging, and darkly funny.
