Ammo Holder

Unread postAuthor: BigGrib » Mon Dec 03, 2007 11:10 pm

So i have been having a problem when i'm out shooting my new pnuematic GB Cannon, is when i'm walking along holding my gun like a good safe spudder (barrel aimed at the ground) my balls fall out (of the barrel) so I thought or a remedy to fix it. you know on vacuum cleaners the wand attachment how you have to push the little button in to take it a part, well i took that idea and modified it. I took a 1/4 compression insert cut it down a little bit filled it with epoxy and stuck it to a inch and a half piece of old hose clamp. then drilled a hole in an experimental piece (shown in the picture) and slipped it in and made sure that the golf ball will go through. basically the hose clamp piece acts as a leaf spring and the pressure of the shot makes the ball push the stopper up and out the barrel, but when it's just resting the pressure holds the ball from rolling out the barrel

Yea, that's definitely going to get you at least a tazer.

Very nice indeed, that would help out countless people.
Nothing worse than "letting your balls slide out" :lol:
Great idea 10/10.

At my lemonade stand I used to give the first glass away free and charge five dollars for the second glass. The refill contained the antidote
