Oh why do women put themselves through so much, i mean spraying propane on oneself can't be healthy, don't light a smoke girls....

Pure propane would be a good alternative Scotty. :wink:

Edit: "Mink oil" WTF is that?

You should think about just using straight propane and a metering system. It's not really that difficult if you apply yourself some...would really go well with your nice looking cannon. If you wanted to keep the bazooka look without a propane tanks connected to it, you could build a meter that could be used to inject one load of propane. Use a male quick-connect air connection, a piece of capped pipe the right size and a ball valve. This would look like a medical hypo that you would plug into your propane tank (with female quick-connect) to charge, close the ball valve and disconnect. Take your "hypo" to the gun, connect it to its female quick connect, open the ball valve and you have a charged your chamber.

I've seen an example of this system on Spudfiles here somewhere but I can't seem to locate it at the moment.

cool.. ill consider that... i was just stalking about a better fuel for the hairspray guys and the deoderant guys.. this seems to ignite everytime.. no matter how much you spray or dont spray.. and leaves nothing but a bare bone chamber when you look inside for your next reload.. i know this cause im using it in my pill bottle qtip shooter...and there is no (none) zilch .. notta.. drop of anything left in the chamber after firing.. no glue, gung. or that crap that gets on your threads.. from other aerosols..

just saying..

maybe someone will wanna use it.. maybe not..
was just my opinion as i have tryed about everything none to man that is aerosal.. and this is the only one guaranteed not to leave a residue.. since it is used to dry fingernails.. and dry them.. not make them sticky.. lol

I suspect the reason why it seems to work so well is because it is 99.99999% propane. It has so little "active ingredient" in it that it is indistinguishable from pure propane.

The label is kind of funny. "Organic protein" what you mean there are proteins that aren't organic? "Mink Oil" ... ya right, wanna guess how expensive mink oil is and how much they actually put in the $2 can? "dl-panthenol" is a precursor to vitamin B5, not cheap, probably makes up 0.00000001% of the contents of the can.

I wonder what is in it, if anything, that actually promotes the drying of finger nail polish? I wonder if it actually does make finger nail polish dry faster?

If it works, and doesn't leave crud in the chamber, and is cheap, then it is a great "spray-n-pray" fuel.

OK, so it is probably 95+% propane and iso-butane with a bit of denatured alcohol.

I'm partial to Mastercraft brand lock de-icer myself, but you guys can't get it in the States, hehe.

I dont think the Mastercraft brand has anything different than other lock de-icers, mind you.
