Me and a friend shot a microwave and computer monitor today.

Nice damage you have there. But you could have taken the Flyback Transformer out of the monitor first.

I don't think I hit the flyback, but it was too dark to tell.

I couldn't get the 1st video to play, but the 2nd was great! Fire at will. Was the recoil of the angle iron real strong?

Wasn't as strong as filling part of the barrel of water though :D

Lol. I like your signature JSR, reminds me of something I did a few weeks ago :lol:

I just realized I could have entered one of these shots in the best shot competition. :(

That angle iron is one of the most ghetto projectiles I've ever seen :lol:

That thing must have had some mad kick. What kind of muzzle energy does GGDT say you're gettting?

About 1200 ft-lbs with an 86" barrel. If I stuck on my 10ft one i would have 1500 ft-lbs :D

That's quite impressive. I'm assuming that you either have a massively oversized chamber or a 2" or higher porting piston valve, correct? What gun is this?
