Mini (not like others)

Unread postAuthor: fom » Tue Jan 16, 2007 8:10 pm

Well I made it out of a small water bottle I found and thinwalled plastic tubing i found lying around, it shoots batteries, tape balls qtips wrapped in tape (the q tips when fired will penetrate cardboard) and many other things that fit in the barrel, the other barrel is made from pen tube that shoots 6mm bbs in shotgun style, i taped on a bbq ignitor and use butane as fuel.
This thing is DAM powerful, oh and the silencer works perfect, all it is, is a pill bottle.

Looks nice, a little too much tape though.
And do you have anything besides a cell phone to take pics?

Did I ask for critism no, do I give a crap no, its not a self phone its a bad digital camera, only 4 mega pixel plus the flash made it relfect so I had to turn it off so it made it blurry (dont ask how too long).

If I dont have the tape on it makes the plastic warp, I constantly had to remake with a new bottle so I tried taping it and it fixed the warping problem.

Those were not taken by a cell phone medievalman. The resolution is too high, they were most likely taken by a digital camera with below average lighting in the room.

Nothing wrong with tape, what else are you supposed to use to attach components to a gun made from such a container? Hose clamps? Pffffft!

Scope, He has already posted a very nice combustion gun in this section, I think he deserves a little respect. Not everyone wants to build complex, expensive guns every time they want to launch something.

Yeah, I just threw it together and it works awesome for inside the house, I'm only 13 so don't expect me to be making hybrids, I spent a lot on my metered MAPP (with stun gun ignition) so all I wanted was something simple.

wow, you dont need to blow up. i just personally believe that you used a little more tape than what was necesary. and i thought it was cell phone pics, because blurriness is a "disorder" that cell phone users have. sheesh... i didnt mean your gun was bad, it looks preety cool infact, but i guess you just cant understand that...

When useing digital camra's with the flash off, try useing the timer function, that way you can hold it really still, thats why they turned out blury, thats what i do, i use the timer, mine gives 4 beeps and on the 3rd i know it's time to hold my breath if i want a crisp pic.

Mini's are cool i think, i've seen a bunch of them come through here in the past year. No offence to the other builders but sgort has build the best that i've seen so far. A q-tip through carboard, i bet thats a hell of a woop sound when it hits! Maby build darts for it, seems to be good ammo for mini's.

P.S. -- On a side note, edit out the killing people part. That kinda talk isn't tolarated around here. Pssst, read the forum rules.
