Not really too mini but small

Unread postAuthor: 85Dave » Thu Feb 08, 2007 3:02 am

hurt my eye...

I did a 1' long, 1/2" dia. rigid PVC barrel and a craft glue bottle for the chamber
to test i had wired it and finished it and wanted to see if spark was going good so I looked down the barrel keeping my eye 2" away about but didn't really think at thee time if it would go off

a single click and sure enough it went off shooting air and maby some fire at my right eye...loud enough to wake the dog up too and its like 3am so that's not too good...

The glue bottle probably shot some small amounts of that into my eye as well which would explain the burning
It's a child safe glue so im in no danger but boy does it hurt


The stupid things I do to get things done...... :D

I'll put some pix in later after I rest my eye for a few hours

I'll be launching orange wire nuts with a cotton ball or two behind it to seal it up


good...my eyes getting better as I type this :wink: :D


USE SAFETY GLASSES PEOPLE!!!

oh man, this thing may only be foot and a half long but boy does it pack a punch.

Grabbed my coat, gloves face shield, wire nuts, tissue ball, and launcher then headed out to the back of the house for a test run.

I was aiming for the shed a good 100' away but I think I missed and hit a house behind it a good 2-350 feet away.
I'm not sure where that wire nut went but I do know its not going to be found any time soon. lol

I'm thrilled right now, you have no idea :D


Oh yea, did I mention the noise from this beast?...I can't believe I fired it in the house this morning with nothing in it...extremely loud but not enough for ear protection. Once again the dog got scared in the house from the noise and went crazy...I think if the neighbors were home they would start complaining after a few rounds as well. lmao

I'll have to make a video of me doing a few shots when it warms up.

And that’s why you don’t look down the barrel of ANY gun…
