Incendiary Projectile...?

Unread postAuthor: viskaren » Tue Jun 10, 2008 11:40 am

I tried this before, without much success. Using a regular combustion, i loaded the spud, poured in some kerosene ( not that much though ) and dropped a flaming paper towel down the muzzle. I pulled the trigger and the potato, pristine and unburnt, flew through the air, while a charred rag flopped to the ground. Any ideas on how to get this to work?

We're just two lost souls, swimming in a fishbowl, year after year. Running over the same old ground, and what have we found, the same old fears, wish you were here.

Oh dang, you just made a big mistake.

The rules specifically prohibit chat about any incendiary projectiles. This is where a spudgun crosses the line from being just a fun thing to do on your weekend to a real weapon.
The rules are there to keep everyone happy and out of trouble.

It surprised me this thread isnt locked yet.
Everything about incendiary projectiles is against the rules.

Da rulez wrote:#
# Discussion of solid propellants, explosive devices or incendiary projectiles fired specifically from a spud cannon is prohibited, and may result in a permanent banning of your account.For the purpose of this forum, these definitions will be used:

1. Solid propellant: Any substance containing all the chemical elements required to enable sustained combustion without the presence of additional oxidizers. This includes but is not limited to gunpowder, thermite, and many commercial and/or homemade pyrotechnic compounds.
1. For this purpose, nitroglycerine, though liquid, would qualify.
2. For this purpose, ordinary flour, though solid, would not qualify.
2. Explosive device: Any device that has the capability to release large amounts of stored energy rapidly.
1. Discussion of fireworks as projectiles is prohibited.
2. Discussion of "soda bottle bombs" or any other similar devices that may cause shrapnel as a result of uncontrolled rupture is prohibited.
3. Incendiary projectile: Any projectile that is capable of producing flame.
1. Rocket propelled projectiles, pyrotechnic smoke bombs, or any other burning projectiles would qualify as an incendiary projectile.

Lock this thread up.

Anyone who posted in this thread aside from the above members, broke the rules in one form or another. All your posts are deleted and all your precious 'spudbux' or posts are gone.

I have no idea what that achieved except for a huge mess. I left psycix's post in because he referenced the rules.
