Salt's ghetto burst disk of DOOOM

Unread postAuthor: Flying_Salt » Thu Mar 29, 2007 10:26 pm

I got bored last weekend so I threw this together. It uses this metal rod I found as a barrel, and uses plastic sandwich bags for burst disks. 1 layer breaks at about 20 psi, give or take. Pop in schraeder, typical, blah blah.
Here's some pics.

The whole thing

Dwarfed by my Pneumatic of DOOOM (which I've been to lazy to post...)

It's actually pretty powerful, and surprised me by shooting acorns into my neighbor's garage.

I mainly shoot saboted acorns, they're cheaper than free in my backyard! (let the squirrels starve! mua ha ha!)
Sometimes duct tape balls, but I failed to do any significant damage on anything.

Is it bad that I looked at you gun and thought "now theres a good idea for ammo"? But seriously 20 and 24 oz bottles fit decently in 3" PVC (a little wadding helps).... but if a length of rod or pipe or something were added, the projectile would be much more stable. I may go and test this out.

Not gonna lie... i actually like the gun, due to the ability to take it apart and you just have a coke bottle, a piece of pipe and a pile of baggies. Seems like the kind of thing that could be stashed in you car or taken to skool or somthin. Also, a good step up from the pill bottle launchers.

I think it needs some... no... alot of duct tape to get the ghetto gun award.

I've never seen anybody win 2! I think your down fall on this one will be having a real shreader valve in stead of a home made one, i don't know, just a thought.
So you just wrap the baggie around the end of the barrel and stick it in the bottle?
