RX Special

Unread postAuthor: Ballad_Black » Mon Oct 17, 2005 7:15 pm

I have a simple pneumatic and combustion, both with 1.5 inch barrells. A asprin bottle fits pretty good down one of these, I used beyer, bayer, whatever. I filled it full of sand and pennies (my ammo always seems to envolve US currency). In all honesty this thing had to be pushing 4-5 pounds.
With the right fuel mix or 100-120 PSI behind it, its a killer. I shot this thing almost the length of a football field, for its weight, (and a ball valve) I considered that good. Im gonna test it on a old car next.

Stay tuned kids, more ammo using pennies will surface soon.

OK, so how'd it go? that does sound pretty heavy, with that kind of weight ( and obviously a pretty powerful cannon ) that will prolly put a whoopin' on a target. that thing is gonna dent hell out of a car, and the shock will knock out some glass too ( if there is any). post some damage pix, everyone loves them.
