Minigun Explosion

Unread postAuthor: ProStreetBarto » Fri Feb 10, 2006 7:19 pm

Hey all, first post here. I just about lost my hand today to a minigun. I was using pure methonal as fuel. Just a warning, but it was highly badass.

Ok...
Ive had my mini blow up on me several times, no need to post about it. Maybe if you had pics it would be a little more worthwhile.

I've had barrels blow out ,but never the combustion tank,If you don't have or use a lot of common sense you need a different hobby.I'm addicted to spud guns so I just have to become safer ,
One of my safer methods is a remote igniter with 15ft. of cable I use on my largest combustion.

He didn't lose his hand, he said he 'just about lost his hand'

Those first 2 words are important.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

I saw the word "Minigun", and expected to read something about a real Minigun - not a Mini gun.

That space is important too.

I've had one come apart too... must be a common thing. Luckily it was such a small gun. It was made with the smallest size advil bottle and a bic pen. It made quite the noise and left me with a handful pieces, we laughed.
