I think I am going to dig out my Hybrid launcher that has been sitting in my shed for 2 months, and shoot something "interesting" for this contest.

here's mine. :twisted:

turn off the sound for my sake, I sound like a retard.

this was taken last fall. I sound much different now.
right now its between 3-5 degrees F* outside, not the best for shooting pvc guns. so I am forced to look into "the archives"...

I saw no rule against it! (goes to re-examine rules...)

http://media.putfile.com/slug-PENETRATES

a 6 pound steel slug, shot at around 60 psi


at about 35-45 feet.(the camera's zoomed in)


the slug knocks a 60 or 70 pound oven back a couple feet from where I put it.
(think of the forces involved for a 6 pound object to move a 70 pound object!)

the slug penetrated through hardened 1/4 inch aluminum, 6 sheets of 1/18th inch thick steel, insulation, wiring, and a 1/4 inch of glass.
dont forget the fiberglass insulation (I hope it wasn't asbestos!)

I finally got my video to upload on photobucket
Just turn off the sound there is no sound other than an annoying song I noticed I put on there after I uploaded it.
Sorry for the bad quality
Here it is

I know it isnt that impressive but I didnt want to break out any of my larger guns that would cause the neighbors to report me.
Visit this link to see the gun used

The answer to putfile download problems -- update quicktime player free download here! Thats what worked for me. No schmanman, you don't sound like a retard, you sound like a retard going through puberty! lol.

I've just made myself pizza - lovely and warm. Blend of good strong cheddar and mozzarella, peas and olives. Delicious.
