People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward.
Whoever cannot take care of themself without that law is both.
For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

One phrase sums this situation up pretty good. "That was smart."

Suggestion if a may, For pill bottles i would cover them with duct tape so it doesent shard when i blows. All it will do is let out heat and then you know that you need to make another gun.

Duct tape wouldn't do anything. Think about it, if its powerful enough to rip plastic to peices why would duct tape stop it?

Maybe if you use 2 or 3 rolls of it. But if it did work and it just let the heat out be prepared for the worst burn in your life. It happened to me.

Thats what happened to me when I used a big pill bottle.
first the lid blu off (It was so bloody loud my ears were ringing for ages) so I thought if I put the lid on tighter it wouldn't blow off so I did that and guess well happen the lid blu up in to many peices. Lucky for me I learned from my first mistake and I was wearing safty glasses and i was looking away when it happened.
It didn't even have any ammo in the barrel :shock:

you wouldn't use duct tape at all. it has the bursting strength of 4 psi. just go buy 5 inches of 1.5" sch 40, a cleanout/ 1.5" ballvalve and a an endcap.

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

Pill bottles work fine for minis, you have to use the orange type.
In a mini duct tape would work.
You wouldn't have to put alot either.
3-4 layers should work.

I prefer the pvc method with minis. Check out <a href="http://forums.spudtech.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=12118&SearchTerms=tiny">Tiny</a>.

Yeah, I should paint it. Other than that, I think it's bad ass. I think it's the smallest onboard propane meter on any cannon.
