mini gun ammo and fuel

Unread postAuthor: cardinals08 » Thu Dec 22, 2005 8:28 pm

I have a mini that I built with a tylenol bottle and pen tube. I was wondering what good ammo would be. Q-tips work but dont stay straight so only works for close range targets. Spit balls break apart. And also, right now I am using AXE body spray for fuel with a long nosed grill lighter ignitor. What other fuel could I use for max power?

good ammo: nail with electrical tape on the end, fuel the ave will probably work best unless you want to step it up to propane. the best range you will see is with a wet Q-tip.

I use butane in my mini and if you experiment with a lighter enough you can even get in down to a science (exactly 7 seconds on mine :D ). Secondly, if you use spit wads don't chew them to a pulp and they should work just fine. I also use ice bullets, formed from another tube and forced out with a ramrod. my last creation was a sewing needle with duct tape around the bottom 2/3 of it :twisted: , these are cool if you have a bulletin board because you can make a target.

yeah, I tried the needle thing, it was cool, till it bounced off the wall and stuck me in the arm. Does butane work much better than AXE?

i use hairspray in warm weather it works best but sux in cold (condenses to quickly) and potato shoved close to th back of the pen tube works best for ammo

A month ago, I got board, and rolled strips of wrighting paper (about 1cm wide by 4-5", if I remember correctly) into TIGHT cylinders. Although not perfect, it's an idea.
The manufacture was simmilar to that of the <a href="http://tomshiro.org/pdart/index.html">paper darts</a> described here; I would roll them and then rotate them between my teeth to "glue" them . Perhaps a toothpick could be used to apply a bit of Elmer's glue to plug the <.5mm hole in the center.
