My range of Minis

Unread postAuthor: Dom » Thu Jan 25, 2007 1:07 pm

It's winder in Canada.. so I can't really shoot the big gun outside, due to cold temperatures.

So what do I do? MINIS :)

First mini :

Second one (it sucks):

Image

Third mini, which I would more classify as a Jumbo mini, or a mid-size :P
(Made today)

Image It packs a little more.. kick.

After the first shot, the tube inside burned a bit (smells really bad)

The three minis together

Damage pics when the gelatine will be ready!

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

I personally prefer it A LOT. It's a lot heck more work with a safety cap.. but it's worth it... I prefer screwing the barrel in that unscrewing, forcing, and by accident ripping the barrel (I understand myself.. )

Nice mini spud guns

Super glue looks good but can't stand up to any type of vibration or shock like on a mini gun. Hot glue works best for this type thing. ( and I can see you like to use a bunch of it lol)

Now all you have to do is make a small hole in the window screen and bug people who come by :D

It's really cold here in NJ so ive been starting minis as well.
My first one worked ok but not all the time, I just did a second bigger one similar to your water bottle unit....I can't wait to see how well it works. I'll be firing wire nuts as im an electrician and have loads of them around the house.

try some silicone tubing. it does not burn as easily and is stiffer so it will be better as a barrel.
