dream mini

Unread postAuthor: cardinals08 » Tue Jan 24, 2006 11:16 pm

what is your dream mini spud gun? Im talking the ones that are like soda bottle chamber sized and smaller. I want to hear what you wanna see, then I would like to try and build them. I am making a double barreled shot gun of sorts using 6 tic tac packs and the barrels are gonna be 2 metal tubes from long nosed lighters, which are also gonna provide fuel and spark.
Im sure if I dont build your Idea, Urban Ninja or some one else, or you will build it. so lets hear your ideas

that one is pretty sweet, Ill get around to building myself one of those, I am pretty much obsessed with mini's, I think they are more fun than full sized spud guns

I agree with cardinals. Minis are awesome. More places to shoot and my parents dont freak when they see me and my friends sneaking out like an 8 foot bazooka. By the way cardinals me and you are like thinking on the same wave length. Last night I converted an old mini into a double barrel shotgun. It uses potato in both barrells as wadding then i put 5-7 dried peas in each barrel. Click booooom. Works great. Good for shooting cans on the balcony. Leaves em in halh after 1 shot! You should build it, maybe not tic tacs but definately double barreled shotgun. A LOT OF FUN!!

Use a disposable lighter. They work amazingly with a tube in the nozzle for inserting into the chamber. What do you use as a chamber?

Clear ones are cool. You can see the explosion :P ! Did you use a normal piezo for yours or a bbg clicker. I found it hard to ignite with a lighter piezo?

Sorry, but heres a pic of that shotgun I mentioned. It is clear at the end to see if it is sparking and to see explosions 8) . It still needs woodstaining, sights and the barrell is pointing up. All in good time. Do you think the stock would look better black or wood stained?

Over and under double barreled shotgun with handcarved stock. Its hard to see both barrels unless you click on it to view original size.

urban ninja, looks good, I would make it black, and paint the white cap black, and find some kind of tint and tint the plastic so you can still see the spark and explosion, but enough so it looks almost black
