Ammo

Unread postAuthor: BigGrib » Thu Oct 04, 2007 9:36 pm

So I've been on the hunt for the perfect ammo for a 2" barrell. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not downing potatoes as a viable source of ammunition for what could be called the reason we call it a "Spud Gun", but I know there is better, easier, and cleaner alternatives out there. Now I used to work at Office Depot and have come across quite a few different items that could be used as ammo, but one inparticular caught my attention. Marketed as a "stress ball" these 2.25" diameter gell ball are covered in lycra. They fit perfectly down the barrell with a nice tight seal, and slide somewhat freely due to the slickness of the lycra covering. Now I had five fingered quite a bit of things and so i got my hands on a good 50 of these things. I tell you what the damage they did was impecible. Anyway I have finally found more of them online at http://www.officeplayground.com/cybergel.htm even though I can't condone paying for ammo like this I would recommend trying them. I would also greatly appreciate any other input on 2" ammo.

Nice, must be expensive though, the best bet for getting reusable ammo would be going to a pet store and finding the small 2" tennis ball meant for smaller dogs. There like 3 for $5 at my local pets mart, check it out.
