1/4 steel ball shot

Unread postAuthor: boyntonstu » Fri Sep 04, 2009 10:25 am

Not using compressed gas, not using a rubber sling shot.


Distance 20 feet.

Can you guess how I launched it?

Put it up your nose, plugged your ears and blew hard?

Actually, don't do that. My brother had to go to hospital to have a raisin extracted from his nose when he tried something similar.

Off the top of my head....

A vacuum/magnetism/torsion* powered launcher.

Or. You manually applied force ^_^



*only a matter of time before someone in here remembers how kickass ballistae are.

I was thinking of something similar, only my idea was a plastic spoon.

The spoon part for some reason...IDK :roll:

There could be a million ways to launch the 1/4" the meager 20' though.

One time I was in a crowded cafeteria, and being into projectiles the way I've always been, I shot a green bean from a plastic spoon held stealthily below the table surface,
It went over 100 ft. and coincedently hit the b@ddest @ss dewd in the cafe...

IT was literally hillarious as he looked all around in shock like while trying to maintain his Alpha chimp personna!!! :P 8)

Let's see. Relatively short noise immediately prior to a big noise. Too short for a Trebuchet. A loud launch noise much like the slingshot and 200 ms travel time with a sudden impact noise much like the slingshot.

With a 1/4 inch steel projectile, I would think something along the lines of a blowgun, but too noisy. It's too fast for a large bore blowgun.

It is in the speeds attainable with a good pitching arm.

Possible catapult or thrown by hand. Most likely catapult due to the time of the launch pre event noise. It's shorter than a falling weigh Trebuchet.
