CD's

Unread postAuthor: shadeslayer42199 » Sun Nov 12, 2006 9:36 am

hmmm...

i have an idea
for everyone with HUGE guns, this could be a cool ammo. take a stack of blank CD's, tape them together, and stuff em down the barrel. it would be interesting. you would have to have a GIANT barrel! has anyone done this? will anyone do it? please post your thoughts here.

thnx

If your getting chased off a police dog, try not to run through a tunnel then onto a small see-saw then through a ring of fire. They are trained for that!

Yeah and I think you would have a problem with them turning sideways. If they aren't put in even they could just turn sideways and let all the air out and not move.

He means a stack like 8" long, about 80 CD's, so it would be one fat slug. You could just cover the hole in the middle with duct tape.

I would try it with my 4" diameter barrel, but it's a little expensive to justify. now, if everyone sent me the AOL free trial offer Cd's, It would cost me nothing, and then I would try it. :lol:

actually, you can go to target or some place like that and you can get 50 blank cd's for $5-10. its not to expensive to do just once and it would definitely be cool (SPARKELY!) although it is more expensive than a potato, but if you have a gun that big, u cant shoot a potato. guns that big should just be used to shoot stuff that would not normally be stuffed down a pvc pipe.

but thats just my opinion

We used to have stacks and stacks of coasters (cds that were burned and had an error) I used to tie them to strings and sling them into trees to shoot with my bb gun. Maybe I'll start saving them again and do this.
Good job on this thought :P

A CD has 12 cm diameter. That is 4.7244 inches.
The closest fit would be 5" SCH-80 with an inter diameter of 4.768 inches.
Good luck finding that and affording it.
