spare part ghetto gun

"This is my ghetto gun, made out of spare parts and a nerf valve. The barrel is a curtain rod with a coke bottle tank. It was pure luck that this all worked together".

Do you have any damage pics? I'de like to see this in action. Be honest, are you bucking for the ever so coveted Ghetto Award? If so, i think your close, but there is a lot of "coke bottle" chamber guns here. WHAT SAY YE, THE REST OF MEMBERS???

No I made this gun before i even found this site so I never took any damage pics. Yes I would like the coveted award. The coke bottle isn't what makes this ghetto its more of the look and the curtain rod, plus theres duct tape you just cant see it cuz its spray painted.

I think the use of a Nerf valve is deserving enough. Good use of household materials. Though I can't see it very well, it sounds awesome!

Here ya go man: The <a href="http://www.geocities.com/sgort87/ghetto">Ghetto</a> is yours!

Didnt even notice the award. Did you make it? If you did, kudos for winning an award you made yourself :lol:

Actually, you know what, you should have used the Stanley Cup for the ghetto award, who watches hockey anyway :lol:

Id say your gun looks pretty good, but the pictures look a little grainy. What does it shoot? And how did you attach the coke bottle?

I made the Ghetto Award Trophy. It was made out of respect for all those who can make something work out of seemingly nothing. It's for the MacGuyvers out there. The masters of rigging. The duct tape enthusiasts. It's symbolic to creativity, resourcefulness, and half-assedness.
