New York City is chock full of noise.  People yelling at all hours of the days, garbage trucks dispensing with the city’s trash and taxi cab drivers who all but have their hand glued to the horn.  And no matter what city you live in you probably wish you could shoot that dang car whose alarm goes off every morning at 5am.  Well, now you can…sort of.

This alarm clock includes a plastic black gun that looks real enough it might actually get you shot the next time the SWAT team kicks down your door for a drug raid. To turn the alarm clock off, which is signified by some sort of car noise (we assume a horn), you simply just to point the gun at the taxi – sorry, no trigger pull required.  It would have been way cooler if you had to shoot a sequence, which surely would facilitate the whole waking up process and justify its $40 price tag.

For the sake of full disclosure this is by no means a new or innovative idea.  We first saw a gun clock 3 years ago, though that one was a fair bit bulkier, and required you to shoot the bulls eye in order to shut it off.
