washers doo damage

Unread postAuthor: ProfessorAmadeus » Tue Dec 26, 2006 6:37 pm

I made some ammo today out of washers and a nut and bolt. It has about 10 washers on it and fits perfectly in a 1 inch barrel. Here are some pics of it and damage it does.

Not really. You know those crappy plastic signs along side of the road that are about 24x14 inches? The washers on those are pefect and free. My dad makes pick them up so I get lots of them for free.

No one has to buy anything. They are free off of signs. It weights alot for its size. It took 40 psi to go through it. I dont like shooting over that in my back yard.

Tax payers pay for them! Like oooo i don't know, o-yea, ME! YOUR DAD. Does your mom work outside the house, earn a pay check. If so, she pays to. Don't worry, when your earning your own liveing, you will be paying to.

Ever heard of a 1.5'' washer? Great idea, but these ideas never seen to work with my cannons. I think I might make a third barrel for my cannon I'm building, and make it 1''. I don't think I've seen signs like that. Could you post a picture?

Back to the current topic, before Pimpmann makes our posts magically disappear...
Do you have a way to make some sort of backdrop in your backyard to stop stray shots? I don't think my dad will let me shoot my gun I'm building if I don't find a way to hang a tarp or something. He refuses to believe spud gns are generally accurite.
