The shooting range is owned by our town's gun club, and conveniently, it is located 200 yards from my house.

Why shoot at stuff so close?
Does not accuracy count at all?
That has to be the mini of mini Hybrids, nice work.

When attempting to inflict maximum damage upon something, why should I move farther away, thus decreasing the rounds energy upon impact with the target?

Actually, it has roughly the same chamber and barrel volume as your hybrid.

Only one person has ever witnessed me firing it at the range, and they didn't say much, other than asking what it was.

If that is the same size as mine, what mixes are you running at?
It just seems a lot less powerful than mine for some reason, I can blast holes through metal buckets at a range of 20 metres easy.
And thats with blunt ammo weighing an ounce.

I usually use 4x mixes.

Blasting a hole through a metal bucket at 20 meters is nothing. I can put a flat ended bolt through 2 inches of wood, or shoot a AAA battery through an oxygen cylinder, or shatter a 2 inch thick concrete block with ease. The nail dart that penetrated the 3/16" thick steel can would have punched through both sides if it had not been stopped by the ~2 feet of trash inside. We didn't have very many good targets at the range when we made the video.

I was thinking about making mine handheld, but that's out of the question when using an 800 mL chamber, 6x mixtures, and a 20 foot barrel. :lol:
I almost have an airsoft hybrid done though, I scrounged 90% of the parts from my airsoft rifle and 1/4" double burst disc gun.

They don't stay in the barrel long enough to melt.

Noname, your gun could easily be hand held, if you chopped your barrel down to about, 30% of it's length. :lol:

It's still almost 10 lbs and not very rifle-like. Plus, if the barrel was only 6 feet, then I wouldn't get possibly (90% certain) supersonic velocities.

Ok then blasting holes through oxy cylinders is by no means an easy thing to do, i just hope they aren't full!
Maybe if you get the time you could film yourself blasting said hole through the tank. One more thing, how loud is she?

It is loud enough to make your ears ring if you are firing it from your hands with no hearing protection. However, it is nowhere near as loud as my advanced combustion, which sounds like a bomb rather than a gun according to my mother.

And no, the oxygen cylinder was not full when I shot it. It would be quite an interesting experience if it was. :shock:

I'm really new to spudding, so reading these is quite frightening.
I mean, a home made device that is loud enough to sound like a bomb.
Granted, I understand why that's the case, but when I really think about it, it's scary.
I just still can't believe you shot through the side of an oxygen tank.
I shot through both sides of a coke can yesterday... with my first combustion, baby carrot as wadding and a small nail stuck inside.
