potato shotgun

Unread postAuthor: nibbler125 » Wed Nov 12, 2008 3:16 pm

here is a peek into my super secret project. the pump action potato shotgun. it works by using the barell as the bolt to bite off a hunk of potato (witch is cut to fit into the clip) and fire it then repete. it is loaded fueled and aired out all by the pumping action.

list of things that still need to be finished
1 electronics
2 bolt
3 fueling system
4 super secret ventalation system
5 the stock will be stained to make it look better


here is a sketch of the plans the airing system has been left out (still classified info will be releced when finshed)

and a picture of the gun in the making (and yes that is a metal slurpee straw.)

The magazine thing is a little sketchy. BTW its called a magazine. All the ammo will just fall out with that design. The super secret airing system could just be a pump attached to the pump action piece. And it's called spell check use it!

Sounds like this project is a little too ambitious for you, and when it fails you'll keep it a super secret ;)

I wouldn't use 100% wood.

I'd use 62% wood, because anything over 90% wood is a nightmare under whepan conditions.
Alternatively, if you want a compromise, 78% wood is great, getting a great combination of chraclean and rhecoa qualities, although it does get very greconic if you let it go untreated for longer periods of time.

It's also inferable that you might discern that an ill-chosen eminence is skylarking and descanting consummate blatherskite in the propinquity of the dispensable ilk of your stated fractional elucidation, not to make reference to the evince status of the same's apparently ostensible slight and facility.

I might add that when you try to be cute and funny you not only waste the authors time, but more importantly the potentially hundreds of readers.

To the author:
You kind of invited this type of criticism. Your plans are quite ambitious, and all the complicated issues have been left to optimism. So my advice to you would to be ask questions, or finish the thing and then post it.

At this point what is the purpose of your post?

For now I have locked the thread, but if you have an answer to my question please PM the answer and I will unlock your thread. Sorry but I hope you understand.
