Bullet Coin Through Bottle
Matthew Mello and Nick V. created Bullet. A plastic bottle is shown unmistakeably empty, then a borrowed coin is SIGNED (if desired).
The coin is slapped against the bottom of the bottle and flys into the bottle like a... bullet.
It is possible to borrow the bottle, the coin, and perform a signed version of Bullet. All of this is taught in detail by acclaimed master Justin Miller.
- Well explained: This trick is very well explaned. He goes through every step in detail so it's easy to learn.
- Versatile: Another good thing is that he explains other ways to perform the trick and you can combine them if desired. Some are easy to do, some needs more practice.
- Impromptu: It requires almost no preparation and it's fairly impromptu.
- Easy: It's easy to perform. Just be careful with angles.
- Not really persuasive: Most people easily figure out that there was already something in there since they can't examine the bottle before the trick... So it's not mind blowing. Kids reacts better to this than adults do.
This is fairly impromptu, but not quite as much as they say. I'd say 90%. Justin goes over the handling and technique with your own coin or borrowed very very well. He explains everything in detail and helps take away your fear of being caught. Now there is a certain risk with everything but if you practice enough you can be very convincing. I think if you are trying to get into coins this would be a good first buy to help you have a very good effect to build your experience and confidence, and help you settle in.
Justin explains a number different ways to seemingly make make a coin go in a bottle when you have a borrowed coin or a borrowed bottle. He also has a scenario that uses a gimmick and goes over angles very well.
"Borrowing" the bottle and coin isn't really what you think it is. I mean, technically you do, but...
The effect itself it well thought out though, and the handling is great. It's also very visual, and therefore produces great reactions.
The only reason I dropped a star was the fact that it isn't as "spur of the moment impromptu" as I expected and I don't think it's practical for street performing: having a bulky bottle with you at all times, forcing a spectator to drink their beverage quickly to get a bottle, having to plant a bottle, needing an extra coin, etc.
I love it because it is impromptu and easy to do. The setup is about 2 seconds and can be done right in front of them. I do this trick almost every time someone wants to see a trick and a bottle is near!
ITS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I JUST GOT THIS 3 HOURS AGO AND WITH A HALF AN HOUR OF PRACTICE I HAVE COMPLETELY AMAZED MY NEIGHBORS!!!!!!!!!!!A MUST BUY FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!
I have just recieved the dvd 'Bullet' and have already freaked out my family over and over.This is my story. We went to the shop just like any other saturday and I was thinking over and over in my head that I need a bottle. Eventually I found a perfect bottle and as we got outside I drank it all as fast as I could. When my mum asked why I said "I'll show you" and I performed bullet as soon as I got home. As soon as I handed her the bottle she went straight to the window to use the light to see if there were any holes.I asked for the bottle back and did the second phase.She was blown away. I am only 14 and I learnt this trick in under 1 hour.If your thinking of missing out on this dvd just remember. Bullet = Reactions
Great trick and very practical. Several variations given - you'll use this.
This trick is great - it's really easy to perform! I can do it and I'm 13 and I have only been doing magic for a year.
I love doing this trick for the simple fact "it's easy"
