Rocket ammo idea

Unread postAuthor: Extrusion » Sat Sep 30, 2006 9:14 pm

Ok its about 10:10pm and im bored so ive been thinking of ammo for my combustion cannon wich i made today and i had this idea of using a mini bottle rocket wich are sold everywhere at New years eve/July 4th so i cant test it now because i havent got one.

What i swas thinking is wrapping the end of it in tape/cloth so it fits snugly in the barrel and loading it up and fireing it straight up or at an angle ( not the safest of ammo because if it doesnt shoot it far enuff up it will go off pointing down lol) and the flame from the combustion of your fuel will ignite the fuse (Might wanna shorten the fuse because it takes a good 10-15 seconds for them to burn down and it might not be in the air long enuff.) and while it is in the air it will fire the rocket causeing it to get EXTRA altitude wich i can shoot a good potato so high i lose sight of it and if it fired that high it would go a good bit higher and would be pretty darn cool lol well theres a drawing below of what i was thinking.

mmm you havn't tried this before have ya? i can tell you right now it won't work as you can imagine. the rapidly expanding gas that comes from your chamber won't light your bottle rocket, if it did it would go out because of its speed through the air. this is a possible concept, but a simple bottle rocket wrapped in tape will not do you any justice. for now use basic types of ammunitions, like vegetables, stuffed animals, random woodland creatures etc etc.

woodland creatures eh lol flying mouse XD well it works with smoke bombs i think its cause it had a nice thick green fuse and those work under water and the flame from the chamber ignited it because the fuse was pointed down to the chamber and at night flame shoots out of the end of my barrel but the rocket fuses might be made differently you could replace it with a nice thick cannon fuse or something and as i said before its not very safe so pleaseif you do try it do not point it anywhere near human life.
