Yep...

Star Wars Replica Stormtrooper BlasTech E-11 Blaster Rifle

(at $700 it's more expensive than the real thing)


PS
The arresting officer still has his (real) gun holstered.

RD, What gets me about your picture is the fella walking across the road taking no notice at all, as if this is an everyday occurance.

I noticed that. Maybe he's trying to be inconspicuous because of the contents of his bag.

No silly, that one is a projectile weapon, Storm Troopers use laser blasts.

Any person that can't tell a blaster from a gun is in need of corrective lenses.

Or needs to watch Star Wars "the movie".
