marshmallows...

Unread postAuthor: daxspudder » Wed Aug 06, 2008 3:58 pm

OMG, I just discovered marshmallows fit perfectly in a 1" barrel... just shot one through 1/2" plywood @120psi...

I never thought marshmallows could be deadly

if you shoot them with some force at a rock they are rock hard afterwards

Hmm, I have to second that range request.

I know I can shoot them pretty darn hard, but through plywood?

I'll have to see this. (or maybe try it?) :)

I've been shooting them for a wile, another good thing is that you can have marshmallow gun fights but you to regulate the preshure down first.

I shot it from about 25 feet... ill make a post with the gun, its 9 different barrels (different sizes/setups) and a ton of damage pics.... also the marshmallows were stale to begin with, and spudfarm hs definitely nailed what i assume allows it to breech wood, the stiffness during compression
