Roger Buchko is embracing his Second Amendment rights in a big way: He made a gun-shaped mailbox.

The 49-year-old New Jersey resident’s PVC-pipe and wood mailbox is formed in the shape of a .44 Magnum revolver.

Buchko, a part-time cabinet maker, said that he modeled the mailbox after his own Smith & Wesson, Lehigh Valley Live reports. He said he didn’t make the mailbox to infringe upon anyone’s gun views, but that he simply “needed a new mailbox.”

All of Buchko’s mail gets deposited into the muzzle of the revolver.

So far, local residents are loving the mailbox, including the county postmaster.

“I think it’s very innovative. I’m 100 percent supportive,” Phillipsburg Postmaster  Melody Baylis told Lehigh Valley Live. She added that she didn’t see a problem with the mailbox, as long as it can accommodate the amount of mail Buchko receives.

Buchko said that almost 500 people have taken pictures with the mailbox so far.
