night spuddin/tracers

Unread postAuthor: cox_rango1 » Thu Jun 26, 2008 7:22 pm

anyone like to shot their cannons off near dusk or after?

i was toying with the idea of getting several dozen glowsticks, of various colors, and cracking them then covering some tennis balls with it and letting them fly....like a tracer round....

anyone use any other method of making their projectiles more visible?

I don't know if it's a good idea, but if you're shooting over a lake with a combustion, you could put a small amount of kerosene on a tennis ball and shoot it. It would have a nice effect, if it works.

Unfortunately, incendiary discussions are against the rules on Spudfiles there Seak. Keep it to non-flammable projectile ideas.
