A 14-second video of a gun-toting drone has surfaced on YouTube.

Uploaded by user Hogwit on July 10, the video was recently picked up by multiple news outlets. It’s been viewed over 700,000 times.

While it’s unclear if the video is real, Mashable notes the recoil that sends the drone back and the shells flying after each shot look genuine.

According to the video’s description, the drone is a “homemade multirotor with a semiautomatic handgun mounted on it,” and “the length from the muzzle to the rear of the frame is over 26 [inches].”

This isn’t the first time a gun has been attached to a drone. The video below from June 2013 shows a drone with a gun firing at fruit, drink cans and a Samsung phone.
