spud gun suicide (kinda. I guess I could call it that)

Unread postAuthor: schmanman » Tue Oct 24, 2006 6:02 pm

I was out shooting yesterday, for distance, when I had an idea. I slapped on the 4" diameter barrel (I was using the swat gun), and jammed this old combustion i found down the barrel. It is 3" in diameter, the barrel is 2' in diameter. the chamber is 1 1/2 feet long, the barrel is 2 1/2 feet long. I shot it. KA-KUNK! it went 600 yards! so I decided to shoot it at a car hood. but first I slipped an empty blue propane tank from a torch into the back of the combustion, and screwed the cap back on. I connected the air compressor, and watched the needle on the gauge. at 40 psi, I flipped up the toggle cover, and flipped off the safety. I then pressed the button on the center of the controller. KA-KUNK! the combustion flew through the air so fast I couldn't see it. with an instantaneous KA-BAM! the car hood fell down. the propane tank, once a cylinder, was as flat as a hamburger bun looked at from the side. the combustion gun was in a ton of pieces, none of which were bigger than a potato chip. the car hood was caved in 1 1/2 - 2 feet, with a 4-5 inch wide tear/ hole in the center. all the paint within 3 feet of the dent was knocked off. then we shot a concrete filled Gatorade bottle through 3-4 inches of fiberboard (particle board). we shot other stuff, too, but right now I'm tired of typing because I'm lazy today.

oh yeah, I also am going to shoot some new ammo I made today. but on Thursday, Ill be gone most of tomorrow evening . It's a foot long section of 2" PVC, with two end caps, filled with colored water and lithium grease. I m going to shoot it at a tree. it should be fun :twisted: .

yeah. oh, btw, nice hybrid :D . I want to shoot one (a potato gun) at 90 or 100 psi with that thing. It would be devastating. each 2-3 psi makes a huge difference with this thing, because the chamber volume is so big.

I want to launch buckets just to say I did it, how much damage would a tennis ball do with between 350 to 400 ft/lbs, 'cause unless my GGDT numbers are wrong this is what my next gun will produce.

Yeah, there is a thread on spudtech somewhere about it... I'll find it later... maybe

I don't think it is spudgun suicide... maybe spudgun cannabolism? Ok, that doesn't make sense :P

that's what I posted it as on spudshot. was it pneumatic? combustion seems more likely.

Yay, 600 posts!!

interesting projectiles can be made from caulking gun cartriges. they can be had filled with an amazing assortment of splattering goo.(henry's roof patch is particularly nasty)
