Make magazine has put together photos and a video of a fully-functioning homemade coil-gun. The large gun, with its parts explained in the video, is then tested to launch a bullet-shaped metal slug against various housewares items.

The result? Although the coil-gun appears to have a lengthy charging time, once the slug is fired glassware easily explodes, a microwave oven's metal body is punctured like paper and plastic items are cleanly run-through. Scary. Check out the video here.
