Hosting Thanksgiving? Here’s How to Unclog Your Toilet with a Shotgun

Instead of calling on an expensive plumber to fix an impossible toilet clog, why not consider the “shotgun de-clogger” method?

Gun and gear review site TwangnBang offers another option for unclogging those extra tough toilet clogs.

We’re not sure how effective – or safe! – this method actually is, but for Redneck Life Pro Tips it’s pretty funny.

TwangnBang “plumbing defense” tools include a Wilson Combat shotgun loaded with Federal Premium Magnum Shotshell Slugs. His clog-removal protocol is as follows:

  • Draining the tank: three to five slugs.
  • Remove the lid and seat: two slugs.
  • Open the bowl up a little more: two to three slugs.

He also emphasizes that you “can’t just go at it as if you’re making a stupid youtube video shooting a household sanitation device with a shotgun.”

Whatever you do, think twice before you channel Caddyshack groundskeeper Carl Spackler:
