My first gun

Unread postAuthor: gotbass7 » Sun Apr 08, 2007 8:32 pm

this is my first spud gun. it doesnt look so pretty and it has a lot of mistakes on it( that i tried to cover up). it fires though, it goes a fairly good distance. i named in Mr. Owl. ignition is from a long lighter, i shoot potatoes ( suprises) and i use old spice high endurance for fuel.

mr owl( best design on there even though it sucks)

thats not bad for a first attempt. in the third pic is that the sparker wire next to your thumb ? if it is try taping it around the barrel. makes it look neater and you wont rip it on something because it wont be hanging around.
maybe try giving the whole thing a coat of paint and then putting its name on over that. or mask the name off.

Looks like you have just one section of pipe with an elbow on the end. I meant efficient in that you used a very small number of parts. :)

I would imagine a rubber band ball wouldn't work out too well unless you partially wrapped it in a cloth or something. Too many gaps all around, know what I mean?
