Golfball Gun vs. Watermelon and Pumpkin

Unread postAuthor: MrCrowley » Mon Dec 17, 2007 8:13 pm

Took a video today of me shooting a golfball at a watermelon and a pumpkin with my <A HREF="http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/viewtopic,p,136108.html#136108">SG-V Golfball Gun</a> at about 70psi from 10yards away.

Enjoy!

There's a how-to video on youtube and my brother plays so he'll help me out. It's just a bunch of different chords and some strumming techniques by the looks, nothing too insane :P

Good luck to you, although starting off on Sabbath stuff is going to be tough, might I suggest some Megadeth? :lol:

It's Ozzy not Sabbath :wink:

Though I would say learning stuff Randy Rhoads has written of Tony Iommi's stuff would probably be a bit more difficult :P

I'm not into Megadeth much, maybe back in my hardcore Maiden days I wouldn've been, but they're a bit 'weak' sounding, I don't listen to anything much lighter than Iron Maiden :lol:

Hey i think i have just figured out what kind of gun i will be making over the christmas break :D
The damage to the watermelon is bloody awesome!

Why only 60 psi, 115 would have obliterated that sucker even further :P

70psi* :wink:

Because I didn't feel like having the golfball go through and through, into my fence, bounce back and give me a good story to tell the kids at school about :D

More or less it wasn't necassary, but if I manage to slip a watermelon on my mum's credit card at the supermarket again i'll crank it up to 115psi just for you Nova :twisted:

They cost like $16NZD here, which is about $12USD :shock:
