great 1/2" Ammo

Unread postAuthor: daxspudder » Mon Aug 25, 2008 6:17 pm

At the dollar store the other day I found a bag of double bubble gum balls, which also just happen to fit PERFECTLY in my 1/2" Super-mod pump rifle.... they are also hard enough to go through(and come out shattered on the other side) 1/2" plywood, aka my fence.

100+ Shots for $1... hells to the yeah

I also like AA batteries. Most of the time they turn sideways in flight though. Sometimes i get some straight ones.

Fins or a golf tee can work wonders with a double-A.

Pretty cheap ammo, plus all the ants will love you. :D
Makes you wonder how they make any money selling them at 1c a pop.

AAs ussually get thrown out, and if not they tumble alot when fired... nerf darts are great, i had a pic on one of my threads, but i guess the huge welt on my arse wasnt within SF rules... wooden darts made of basswood dowels with balsa wood fins, with a screw in the end are amazing as well...
