The items you're looking for are called "Close-Up Illusions," not "Weapons."
Both are available from the original publisher, The Camirand Academy in Canada: www.camirandmagic.com
For some reason the items are not listed on the website, but they are advertised in the September issue of Genii so I know they have them. Use the link to contact them.

Actually, I believe there was a video out from Videonics called "Deadly Close-Up Weapons" or something to that effect. Ouellett had several video tapes released through them. This was a teaching tape as opposed to the demonstration only, companion tape to the book.

Here's a stab; could g. garcia be looking for Richard Sanders's "Close Up Assassin" video, a small pamphlet/video combination also sold by Camirand Academy?

I've got both "Close-Up Illusions" and the "Deadly Close-Up Weapons" video. I'm not interested in selling but I'll try to answer a specific question if I can.

You can occasionally find these old videonics tapes being sold off... Deadly Close Up Weapons was volume 102, if that helps.

I just did a quick web search... Camirand has it for sale here:

Here are the contents of the video, reprinted from the Camirand website:

Deadly Close-Up Weapons
Gary Ouellet

Gary is an exceptional teacher - he emphasizes effect above all else, and his methods are simple and superior in all respects.

You will note that this video contain explanations of some of the ideas published in Close-Up Illusions . As well, they feature many routines that have never before been revealed! Note that the books were written a few years after the these videos were produced and some of these routines could be slightly different than the definitive book version.
