big gun / little gun

Unread postAuthor: KylePipkin » Sat Jun 23, 2007 1:31 pm

The small one was my 2nd pneumatic launcher that I built and the big one was my 4th. The two guns kinda count as one because I never have both of them working at the same time. I always have the air valve and other stuff on one or the other, not both. Both guns are built almost the same, but one is just longer and more powerful. The barrel sticks out 5 inches from the tank on the small one. Both of them have good destructive power but not enough for me. My next gun that is almost complete is 12 1/2 feet long the tank is 10 feet by 4" and the barrel is 10 feet by 2"

A few weeks ago, me and my brother destroyed a VCR but I didnt take any pictures. I think we were having too much fun and I forgot. I did get alot of video. I have a clothes washer that broke that I was saving to shoot at and some plywood. Maybe I just might do a little bit of shootin today.

sry the pics are so late but here they are. My air compresson is 5 years old and small so it takes a long time to fill up the gun. Thats why I only shot it a few times. The first shot was a D battery( it just made a big dent ) and the other 2 were with the nut. There will be alot more distruction pics of that washer. Im going to wreck that thing so bad you wont be able to tell what it is when Im done with it. the gun was at 70 psi

I was shooting from about 30 feet. I also make pvc bullets some with a big sharpened bolt on the front. Anything that is round, heavy and fits nice in the gun, Ill use.
