Sorry Gippeto, even on your worst beer drinking day, I don't think you have it in you to properly compete in this inauspicious contest...

That little beer drinking gun actually looks really cool...far too much so to be in the running for a ghetto contest... :wink: Looks a lot like a nailgun with all the hose hookups.

I wouldn't even trust a metal ball valve (like a 150psi one) with that much pressure. He is insane!

Obviously Drex drinks more than I do. :wink:

So what actually are the qualifying criteria upon which something will be declared "ghetto"?

Does it HAVE to blow up in your face? :lol:

In a nutshell, YES... Remember Edd's infamous wooden ghetto...

...those scorch marks represent in my mind the ghetto award winning feature...the exiting flames burned his finger.

As much as this idea goes against my principle of building it right the first time, I'm in (seeing as how I'm also one of the four that hold the ghetto award).

Not sure what I'll make....maybe a hybrid made from rabbit crap plus a few things (secret recipe, 100% all natural). Probably won't have time to make it though.

Drex,
Haha damn man, that is like a giant middle finger to all the PVC manufactures who tell you not to use compressed gases with their products.
