Amurica! Land of the free, where you are free to build any type of mailbox you want (as long as it conforms with certain USPS regulations). Well one New Jersey man took it to the extreme and built himself a 350 pound (plus a 1200 pound base!) Smith and Wesson .44 Magnum mailbox. Of course, it helps that he’s a cabinet maker and metal fabricator.
The barrel of the gun was made from 8 inch PVC pipe and it took him 4 months to build it in his spare time- an hour or two a day. The cylinder is mounted on ball bearings and spins in the breeze. Nice work. (via)
