Money Shot

Unread postAuthor: Ballad_Black » Mon Oct 17, 2005 12:34 pm

A while back, I bought ping pong balls, just for fun, I was gonna put water in and freeze them for ammo. This morning I was sitting in my car before school, and I had the ping pong balls in the consol, along with about 2 dollars in pennies. I cut a small slit in the ball and started pushing in penny after penny. I was surprised how many went in, and then I taped up my creation.
When I got home, I pulled the gun out and put 100psi in the chamber. When I turned the valve (yes, ball valve, ew. lol) it went flying out with some recoil, I missed the target but it made a gyser of soil erupt from the ground. These things fly far and being they are round, you get the point.

The shell is pretty strong and did'nt break, I finally lost my ammo into the horizon. Try it if you got the time, money, and balls. Pun intended. :wink:

I like the ice idea... fill the P.P. ball 3/4 with water and freeze. Maybe this has already been suggested in some other topic... oh well.
