The C:B Nightmare

Unread postAuthor: Spedy » Mon Apr 21, 2008 8:26 pm

As the title suggests, this thing has a rather stupifying C:B ratio. It must be something like.. I don't know, 30:1? I don;t mind very much, it's loud and fun and packs a punch. Based off of http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/how-i-made-mine-qtip-gun-t13664.html, I improvised sparker and added on-board fuel. Next step is a syringe for accurately metered fuel, I've calculated about 15 cc of butane will work.

Yes, I am aware the thumbnail is all grainy, thats the only way I could bring the file-size down enough..

Here's the pictures:

tmacd995:
I usually shoot q-tips with it.
STHORNE:
I haven;t fired it enough to get a feeling of accuracy, but I'm pretty sure It'll whack you in the back of the head from across the room. Gotta add more pen tubes sometime lol

XxtriviumxX: It IS fun to shoot! seeing a cat run away in terror of flying Q-tips is REAL comedy! (don't worry, I don't actually shoot them, just next to them)

psycix: Thanks. The ungodly C:B ratio adds to the fun by being loud enough to hear throughout the house =D
My mom found like 5 old "maloox" or however you spell it bottles in here room, and thats what it's made of.

TwitchTheAussie: Thanks!
