Flower Shell: 12-Gauge Shotgun Shells Filled With Flower Seeds


Sun, Dec 15th, 2013 21:00 by capnasty NEWS

The Flower Shell website is trying to promote a new use for shotguns: use them to plant flowers. I am utterly confused as to why someone would want to plant flowers by shooting the seeds into the ground, but I also don't live in a country where shotguns are readily available nor are guns such a problem.

Instead of lead (or bismuth, steel, tungsten-iron, tungsten-nickel-iron and even tungsten polymer loads polluting the nature) my shell is firing flower seeds. The shell is a standard 12 gauge (0.729 in, 18.5 mm diameter) shell. The amount of gunpowder has been reduced and adjusted to fit the different seeds.
