That would rule :twisted:

Anyway, if you have a rather large oak tree sitting in your yard, you could do my acorn shotgun trick. I put a piece of potato all the way down the barrel, drop in about 10-15 acorns, then I like to put in another piece of potato to hold it all together. Doesn't do too much damage, but it sure is fun! May all the squirrels starve and die!!! :twisted:

Oh man, I just got a brilliant idea!! Weld some sinkers to the front of one of those big triple fishing hooks, put some wadding in, and fire away! You could even tie a string on and "reel in" your catch, be it a box, a squirrel, another squirrel (sorry, after the.."incident"...I don't like squirrels too much.

i see you dislike squirrels :lol: you could just pound the sinkers on instead. instead of wasting a fishing hook, I could just wire them together, It would work the same.

for little caliber cannons, like between, 4.5mm to 10 mm, you cant buy arrows and cut the head. its steel, very ..mmmh...i can't find the word....sharp?? pitched? well, it's heavy, dense, and flies very straight. with my 6mm piston cannon, it went through 1.5 cm of wood...

my friend gave me some bike pegs that fit in a 2" barrel. all you people suggesting small caliber ammo, did you notice the two barrel sizes I said to design the ammo for are 2" and 4"?

what do you mean by "you guys are pushing it"?

don't push the animal thing. You shouldn't hurt animals. As I think of it, you shouldn't hurt plant eighter. What did a plant ever do to you ....

Pacifists…
Any way, sheer weight alone is not going to do much.
Get a 1”by 2-3’ forged steel pipe.
Turn a piece of steel down to a cone about 3 inches long and thread/weld the cone onto the pipe,
Weld fins onto the opposite end of the pipe from the cone weld the fins at a slight angle to induce a spin,
Now melt some lead and fill the pipe,
After the lead cools take some foam and rap the end of the pipe just behind the cone to keep it stable in the barrel,
by the way this is for the 2 incher.

Well I hope you get it and that the pic works out.

It sickens me when I here all you people go on and on about how killing animals is wrong. Do me a favor and SHUT UP. I’ll keep my opinions to my self if you do the same. Let’s keep on focus; this forum is not about political correctness, it’s about spudguns. So please if someone say something like “death to squirrels!” don’t respond and go on and on about how you think killin is wrong just ignore it, please.

No offence POS you were just easy to quote.

I'm gonna let the thread go for a little longer before I decide on a winner, oh, check this out.

the pis below are of the 10-in-1 table I will destroy tomorrow or Wednesday (we have a half day at school) It contains everything that came with it. we basicly yanked it out of our basement, and stuck it in front of the gun out in the field

there are about 2 inches of fiberboard, and a bunch of plastic, and some metal from the foosball thingy.

to give you an idea of scale, It's a little over a foot thick, 2.5 feet wide, and about 4 feet long.

I think I can put a hole all the way through in one shot. :twisted:

we'll just have to wait and see.


here's the other target

I think the 6 pound slug will total obliterate it in one shot. yay!

Then I wonder why you can't discuss exploding ammo, or propelled ammo, use of pyrotechnics. Imo they go well together with spud gund. I can think of some plans (got some to) to make propelled rockets, fired from a spud gun, exploding on impact due to an electric circuit.

I dont discuss them here, cause it is not alowed. Same about the animals. That's why I mentioned it.

BUT ... no offence taken ;)
