In all honesty I've never actually been to an event in which this particular projectile launcher has been utilized, but it seems like a thing that would either be terribly fun or terribly tragic. I mean, I'm pretty sure that the entire concept is incredibly dangerous which is probably one of the many reasons you don't see them that often.
I actually had a series of comics featuring the net gun, and I was contemplating waiting to release them in November and call it Net-vember (heh). Upon further reflection, there are really only so many ways that net guns can be funny, and I got cold feet at the prospect of delivering an entire month's worth of net themed humor. Plus, I didn't want to field any questions or statements about how Net-vember isn't a real thing.
If you were in the U.S. yesterday I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July, whether you were enjoying a family picnic, taking in a vibrant pyrotechnics display, or simply watching the cinematic masterpiece starring Goldblum and Smith.
Today's comic actually began it's genesis with the title. I was pretty smug about the originality of that pun, but sadly a Google search showed that I wasn't exactly planting my flag in new territory. Still, my version has a decidedly separate feel to it, so I'm going to call this one a creative win and move along.
If you haven't clicked the above link, do yourself a favor and do so. It is filled with puns and designs for the naturalist and dinosaur lover (needless to say, the author of this comic is a fan). I myself am now the proud owner of a plesiosaur enamel pin snuggling a heart. I will caution you that the pin is smaller than you might think, though the dimensions are clearly indicated in the item description, there is really nothing in the pictures to help define scale. Still, it's pretty.
