pretty nice, but does it fly straight ? The weight at the point isn't mounted in the middle :s

I know, eventually I took that off, then wrapped it in tape. It flies very true.

Concrete filled caulking tubes fit in 2" Sch 40 with a slight amount of tape added, and will actually snap small trees in half at close range.

Small Nerf football. Might possibly works, trailing string. Perfect for watching parabolic trajectory.

I think that's considered an incindiary projectile, seeing as it's on fire (which is against forum rules, you might want to delete that post.)

My thoughts were that you could fill a pop can with concrete, or about 3/4 full with water and freeze it, and it should fit very well in a 2.5" barrel.

Just wondering if anyone has ever used wadding and then put about 50-100 paintballs down the barrel? I would figure that either you would have a lot of paint and little pieces of plastic shooting out of the barrel, or some would bust inside the barrel and then your target would be covered in paint? Just curious if anyone has ever tried it.

A crapload of paintballs has been done many times. AS for the frozen water filled soda can, they don't fit in 2.5" PVC.

I used a sock as wadding for a bunch of acorns in my comby, got pretty torn up...
But I found this old, broken bike pump with a chamber that fits perfectly in my 1.5'' barrel. It's quite fun!

Brussel sprouts i find have a good range becasuse of their density, small tomatoes leave a big mess, and my personal favourite bean bags (you make them out of a bright colour which is easy to find)
