Harmless Hunter

In 2012, the brothers Randy and Michael Gregg tried to raise money to produce their 'harmless hunter' or 'kill shot' gun. Though it wasn't actually a gun. It was a camera shaped like a gun. From their Kickstarter page:

This can be used year round when game is out of season to satisfy the lust for hunting while getting you ready for the harvest season.  The cross hairs will show on the photo where the shot would have been, the background will show if the shot was safe or unsafe.  It will help teach gun safety by operating like a lethal hunting rifle, except, it takes pictures and fires no projectiles...  Ethical shot placement and the sport of hunting are taught all in one!  You will be able to post "KillShots" on a website that will come with the rifle. 


They never succeeded in raising enough money. Apparently the idea appealed neither to hunters nor to wildlife photographers.

I believe there is a law requiring that anything that looks like a gun but isn't, such as this, or a toy gun, must have the end of the barrel painted orange, to prevent "accidental" shootings.

I don't see any such feature on this.
