Chad Long is one of those performers who create baffling magic that audiences love to see again and again. Is it a card stab? Is it a revelation? It’s a trick Chad has been hanging onto for more than twenty years, and now he’s sharing it with you. This is Chad Long’s Pop Gun.

Here’s what happens:

A card is selected, signed, and then lost in the deck. After some visual magic with a marker, the magician gets down to business trying to locate the card. After a couple of hilarious failures, the magician decides to get serious and sprays the deck into the hair. With the sure-fire accuracy of an old west gunslinger, the magician fires a toy gun and miraculously sticks the foam dart to the signed card. Everything can be examined!

Pop Gun comes with all the props you will need to perform this hilarious and unexpected miracle. A great addition to the end of your ambitious card routine or a perfect piece of close up comedy all on its own. Chad has been delighting audiences with this effect since 1986. When the signed card appears on the end of the soft foam dart audiences are surprised and astonished. The routine has built-in misdirection and lots of laughs. The most fun you’ll ever have with a toy gun is Chad Long’s Pop Gun.

Great trick, Great props, Great explanation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 11th, 2020
I am very impressed with how sincere and thorough Chad is in explaining every detail and nuance of the trick. An example, is instead of just saying "control the card to the top with your favorite method", Chad takes the time to explain three great ways while being thoughtful of different performers' skill levels. I also enjoyed him taking the time of giving a bonus by adding a "magic marker" performance while handing out the sharpie to the audience.

Simple Concept, Very Effective! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 5th, 2020
Chad Long has presented a simple yet highly effective routine/secret that will fool laypeople all day long. Anyone can do this with just a little practice to make it flow.

My only wish is that it wasn't so messy. It might be difficult to use this for table hopping, but it could be done...the mess is part of the effect, though, and is part of what makes it fun for all. High five and five stars for Pop Gun!

Nice but incomplete Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 24th, 2020
I got this over another similar stab trick just released but am not to happy with it. It isn't the props but the instructional video. There are couple things that are very germane to the working of the effect which Chad hardly addresses at all, if at all. These involve prep and performance of the effect. I can't say much more but have addressed it to Penguin in hopes of a response and solution. Having been with them since early 2002, even moderating the forums this is one effect I would wait and see if there are some additions to the instructional video. Others have said they think it is great but how many have actually gone out and performed in the real world with it??

Good instruction, a bit chaotic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 23rd, 2021
So I didn't buy this trick for the toy gun (big shocker!) but more for the instruction from Chad Long. And it doesn't disappoint there, for sure. To be honest, when I found out the method I was surprise at how simple it was and how much he goes into other parts of the presentation which help it be a complete routine instead of just another piece of one. His style of teaching is a bit all over the place and chaotic but I think it works for him. He also teaches a bit of a Fl!pstick routine from years ago that is a pretty neat thing as well as a few basic card sleights to help magician's that don't know any yet be able to do parts of the routine. Some are complex and some are easy and he offers instruction in both. The value here is Chad Long's instruction. The prop is OK and functions as it should (I've had the arrow jam once or twice but no biggie.) Decent buy.

Nice effect! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 11th, 2021
I really love this effect and the whole novelty of using a toy gun to capture a card.

It is an effect that has personality and makes people say wow. I would highly recommend this for any close up worker that wants to utilize what normally would be a stage effect.

Highly recommended!

This is a fun twist. It’s obvious that Chad has performed this a billion times just from the timing involved. To use an overused term in magic it’s more organic than a sword.
