another mini, surprise surprise

Unread postAuthor: cardinals08 » Sat Dec 24, 2005 3:29 am

I just threw a mini together cause I was bored and its 2:20 am with nothing else to do. I used a high lighter tube for chamber, pen tube for barrel. I glued in the barrel so only half sticks out. I used a piezo with long wires cause I plan on making a pimpin stand for this son of a gun. Man is it ever hard to get the AXE to air ratio right. I fired a couple blanks to practice and stuck a gum wrapper in after that. after about 20 minutes of fiddling(longer than it took to throw the thing together) BANG!! Success :D It was pretty loud for its size, sounded like a fire cracker, as soon as it fired, next thing I know, the wrapper had already bounced off the wall and hit me in the forehead :lol: it seems like a pretty good gun for the size. I cant fire any more cause its cold outside and parents are sleeping :( I wanna see how it compares to the other minis. if it does good, Im gonna use it more cause it takes half the fuel of a pill mini. Would it do better if I pulled the pen all the way out? or is it just as good to have it in the chamber?

I dont know how, I have a digital camera, but dont know how to get the pics onto the internet, would it work if I attached them to an email, and sent them to my yahoo email account? could I get the pictures on here from there? I just made some ammo for it, I rolled small pieces of paper into small cones. they fly from my bedroom window, all the way across the street, probably about 75 feet.
I actually think I will make a pistol handle for it, put the butane thing in the handle, then have two buttons on the handle, one for ignition, one for fueling :D
