Catch 22 Gun

By TheRyanFord
So for one of my classes we were asked to create an image that displayed a catch 22. We could not include any sort of explanation or story with it. It had to visibly be a catch 22.

This was tough. Out of 14, or so, people, only 4 came close to making an actual catch 22.

This was my attempt. I decided to use the gun I had started working on about a year ago, but finish it up more. It's not fantastic, but it looks pretty good...especially considering my previous attempt had some file problems and became unusable, requiring me to redraw what I already drew.

Anyway, a Catch 22, for those unfamiliar, is (in a nutshell) a situation where "you're damned if you do and damned if you don't." If you take my gun, let's aim it at someone. See how that works? Another good one was my friend Leizl's; she drew a life preserver made out of bricks.

How would you shoot that without killing yourself in the process?

You're under no obligation to load the second cylinder.

Well, it seems I am being held at gun point and holding at gun point, so I can shoot while I shoot.

Great concept, but it isn't a catch 22, because if you shot the gun sideways, you could avoid the catch.

and shoot both the guy on the right and the one on the left...

=D Shooting "backwards" with this revolver would be a tiny bit hard - I don't see no second firing-mechanism anywhere?

Everybody knows this gun is made of magic.
