Coffee can

Unread postAuthor: SpudBlaster15 » Sat Dec 09, 2006 10:56 pm

This is what happens when a potato hits a coffee can at 300mph.

It flew backwards about 30 yards, and god only knows where the lid went. Kinda funny.

That's some pretty good snow there, how deep is it?
(sorry, we never get good snow in Texas)

anyway, I think I might try that. I was shooting my duct tape ball at this old pumpkin from halloween, and all I did was dent it!

It was a medium sized one.

The snow is about 4 feet deep.

I did that a few weeks ago when the snow was of the proper snowman building consistancy. The snowman was 8 feet tall and I needed a ladder to put its head on. The first shot from 50 feet blew the head into several chunks the size of marbles, and it took 5 more shots to completely destroy the rest of it. It was fun.

Now, the snow is of a powdered consistancy, and I cannot even make a snowball.

The ratio is ~0.9:1. Not quite ideal, but I dont want to make the barrel any longer as despite having an over/under configuration, the gun is already taller than me. :lol:
