A classic effect from the past, now revised with a new and improved method. Imagine showing your hand to be empty, front and back, then forming it into a finger gun and shooting at an object. Much to the surprise of the audience, they hear an actual bang!
Devin Knight's new Invisible Gun will allow you to do just that, and do it without the use of any caps, explosives or hidden shooting devices. A new method that is 100% safe and has never been used in this type of effect. No chemicals or thumb tips needed. No expensive gadgets to buy either. You can do this within minutes of reading the ingenious secret.
Anytime in your routines, you can add to the effect by forming your hand into a gun and firing at the object with a bang being heard. You can do this during walk-around magic gigs and repeat the effect whenever you wish.
You can place a coin into one hand; form the other hand into a gun and fire causing the coin to vanish. Create the shooting wand effect with any ordinary wand. No need to buy those expensive shooting wands. Just pick up any wand and wave it and you will get a bang. Wand is not gimmicked in any way.
THE BULLET CARD: Here is a routine that is included with this release. Take a deck of cards and have one selected and left in the middle of the deck. Show both hands to be empty, then form the right hand into a finger gun. Aim at the deck and fire your finger gun. A loud bang is heard. Hand the deck to the spectator and ask him to remove his card. Much to his surprised, his card now has a bullet hole in it, complete with burn marks. He can examine the deck and there are no duplicate cards.
This is a new bit of business that is not being done nowadays and will be a real novelty to your audiences.

I really really really like this release. If you see it as just an effect to perform, it's not that great. But used in conjunction with a routine, this could be a very effective gag/addition. I am trying to come up with a routine to use it with in my kid shows. The bang you get is pretty loud. I think it could easily be heard from the back of a small theater. It doesn't use any chemicals or fire things of any kind. The method is VERY simple., but I am a big believer that simplicity isn't always bad. In this case, I think this method is the perfect solution to this desired effect. I bought a supply of gimmicks that will last for years for only $5 at my local walmart. This is definitely worth getting. Great work, Devin!
