Ammo and Cannon Names

Unread postAuthor: deathbyDWV » Tue May 19, 2009 5:18 pm

Hey guys. I was wondering if you have any cool ideas on ammo for my cannons. I have one with a 2 inch barrel and one with a 1.25 inch barrel. I was looking for ammo to shoot at stuff (like the neighbors house JK :lol: ) and to shoot in the air. Any ideas? Also does anyone have a name for either of my cannons? They can be found here.

Here is a wiki article on ammo. It will get you started:
http://www.spudfiles.com/spud_wiki/index.php/Ammo
Generally, anything that can fit into the barrel can be used as ammo. If it doesn't fit too well, just use a wadding or sabot.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

I have an idea you might like. Get an egg and wrap it in foam or something else soft and bouncy. Shoot the egg up into the air and try to have it land and not break. I have been able to do this with my hybrid a few times with eggs.

I'm a firm believer in doing things like this yourself. It's a little like naming your children. Determine for yourself the experience you had while building, the purpose you had for building, the feelings you had when you were successful, etc.

If you are doing a creative job on your cannons rather than just copying someone elses, cool appropriate names should almost be self evident.

I think you are spot on. :D

Now that I think about it some even have nicknames. The DWV test cannon is simply called the apple cannon as it is primarily used for apples.

The marshmallow cannon was built as a competition grade model of the t shirt cannon with competition marshmallow launching as the goal.

The Dragon is named after the artwork I picked for it.

New parents often seek suggestions for the new kid to get suggestions and approval. I think this is the case here. :binky:
