mp3 players as AMMO!

Unread postAuthor: schmanman » Sat Jan 06, 2007 12:11 pm

I had one of these piece of crap dell dj dittys. 512 mb, no menu, hard to use controls, tiny low res screen, and took forever to load songs. not only that, but the software that came with it sucks, too. I got one for Christmas last year (we did not know it was so crappy) and a couple months later it craps out on me. cant recharge it, or put songs on it or anything. so it will become ammo. the happy ending is that I got a black ipod nano, 4 gig, and all the goodies to go along with it, got a headphone jack splitter and cases for it today. :D


It is now going to be ammo! what should I shoot it at? I will film it before/after, and durring the shot. yay!

Shoot it at a concrete wall. Film it from close and put glass or acrilic in front of the camera.

yeah... that would be cool, except If I accidentally hit the glass or acrylic, the camera is gone. I can put it semi close, but to the side, and zoom in. :)

I think the glass or acrylic is to protect the camera.

yes, but the acrylic and or glass would have to be very thick, and I don't have any at the moment.

It would be cool to get some plexiglass and shoot it with the camera behind it in slow motion with high fps.

Shoot it at a stack of AOL CDs in front of a brick wall, heavy plywood wall, etc.
Why, you ask? I haven’t the foggiest idea…

I would use something extremely solid that will not break or dent in anyway from the impact. Sure, shooting it at a pop bottle would be cool, but no cooler than shooting like a rock at it.

If it is a strong wall, then the mp3 player will shatter, and it would look amazing.

Its too bad the mp3 doesnt work... you could hook up a pair of small speakers, and play some appropriate music as it is about to hit a wall at over 400 MPH :)
