Is that your miniature Colt Model 1860 Army Revolver, or are you just happy to see me?

David Kucer's mini-Thompson gun

Small things have a cute factor, even when they are weapons of mass destruction.  Take for example the miniature desk-top cannon: innocuous in size, destructive in performance.  (see video here)  Likewise, the miniature crossbow would be a great source of Friday-afternoon-still-at-work entertainment, but the landlord would not be happy with the small holes in duct work and doors.  (see video here) Some, such as David Kucer, have taken miniaturization of weaponry to the level of fine art.  The beautiful 1/3 size versions of the Thompson machine gun and Mauser leave you wondering... "Where's the ammo?  The gnomes are chewing my ankles again."
