They might as well take the bike, the gun looks fucked, the slide is bent and the slide stop looks like it's been used to hammer in nails. The muzzle shouldn't be protruding like that either, it's probably just an airgun or something.

it's not an airgun. it's a custom barrel with a beat-up crown that would make me nervous to fire. I cannot see where it is bent. the finish is sure shot on it! :)

what are these fishing games?

A gambling video game where you have to shoot fish, turtles, mermaids etc from a fixed point on the screen, it's easy to shoot in there direction as they swim by but hard to gauge there depth. Can be very expensive if you don't know what your doing, a dollar lasted me about 3 minutes :( If you do know what you are doing you can win money!

I agree. It does appear like an airsoft/pellet gun, by the looks of the magazine.

Don't think that would ever happen, just like poker machines there not designed to lose!
