My day of spudding

Unread postAuthor: trae08 » Sun Feb 22, 2009 10:04 pm

Well today me and my cousin shot my guns off in my grandparents back yard. When we got there all i brought was an old pc tower but fortunately they had an old bathroom cabinet thing that was trash so i got to destroy it as well.

Pictures pretty much speak for themselves, Obviously if you click on them you'll get a bigger one to look at.

I used 3 barrels and one chamber.
1 1/2 sdr 21 for golf balls
1 1/4 sdr 26 for ping pong ball
1 inch for these aluminum spike things. the fit was just perfect.

We found this table down by the shed which had a steel top so we used it as a backstop, Without it the golf balls would go straight threw the cabinets and into the field, And even with the backstop 1 went threw and others tore threw the steel.

The aluminum spike things were not shaped for flight so they always spun but even still they would tear the table after going threw the cabinet.
Several times the spikes would shoot into the ground and we wouldn't be able to find them.

As you can guess and empty ping pong ball doesn't do much but we got creative and filled several with glue, soap, water, baby powder, alcohol, shaving cream, and would cover the hole with electrical tape. A water filled ping pong ball went threw the cabinet and frozen ones went threw and dented the steel.
I didn't take and videos of the ping pong balls being shot though

The pictures are described as follows:
1: The hard drive from the tower. And the spike we shot at it.
2: A CD drive shot 3 times with spikes
3: The computer in pieces. We didn't pull none of it apart it all fell apart after being shot with gold balls and spikes
4: One of The cabinet doors
5: The back of the cabinet thing
6: The 2 top ones are from golf balls and the bottom one is from a spike
7: Each barrel and the ammo used for it. the golf balls had to be pushed down with the 1 inch barrel i put a spike in behind a ping pong ball to push it down and the spikes were heavy enough to slide down by themselves.
8: The box is full of ping pong balls, The chamber is from this gun

Looks like productive day of shooting. I thought about going out today but was just too cold.

Dealing with insects in that manner is not what the rules are meant to cover, although I do agree that burning roaches doesn't actually need to be on this forum in the first place.

The video was removed which is fine sense it doesn't coincide with this thread but maybe you should familiarize yourself with the rules instead of lecturing everyone else about them

Cool. Thanks for sharing :)
Those spikes are nice, but they would be better if the small diameter spike would detach from the larger diameter body, making it a sabot round.
You can clearly see that the tip penetrates easily, but the big body slams in and stops dead.

Thanks. Yea i only had 4 of those spikes.I tried grind down the flat face to just a pointed spear but it took to long and didn't work to well with the abrasion disks i had on the bench grinder. I say i had 4 cause my cousin wanted to see how far one would go without anything in its way so i shot it and it went clear across my Gparents backyard into the lake behind it. Which is about 300 ft past the 2nd shed.
