death of a snowman.... SWAT STYLE!

Unread postAuthor: schmanman » Wed Feb 21, 2007 6:02 pm

yeah, um, I killed it. this was at 20 psi.

mudman (dippydodo03 on here) is the one saying "holy S***!"

I was planning on puzzling you guys, so I wanted him to move the ___ ___ ___ _____ (in other words, you'll have to watch it to find out)

I was gonna see who asked me how I did.
I feel so stupid. :oops:
(oh, I'm going to upload it onto youtube later, because it's higher resolution)

click this, and be amused!

highlight from the bottom of this sentence, to the smilie at the bottom of the page. I dont want to give it away.

well, I filled a milk jug with water, and added red food coloring to it, then built it into the snowman.

did it look like it exploded, and blood went everywhere? 8)

umm, no. a dinosaur.

I found it, and was gonna make the snowman hold it, because it would be weird. :D

the sticks I used for arms were not capable of holding it without bending, and dropping it.

That was pretty cool.

I wish there was snow in Minnesota!
You stole my snow! I will come get you! Oh, wait...you have the S.W.A.T. Gun, don't you...Maybe I'll wait till I'm 18 and then like buy a grenade or something, and build an even bigger cannon!

But that was really cool. Nice job.

Why did you have to throw the jug over there and quick? I remember the one time we had snow and we made a giant ball of snow in the middle of the road and a garbage truck exploded it like that. The red was a nice toach!

That was super awesome :D
Way to be creative.
What projectile was used? If it was mentioned in the video I missed it because I currently don't have speakers.

That was good, i was thinking to myself....self? How in the hell did he do all that damage, and where did all the red come from, to much to be from 1 paint ball. At 20 psi yet. Would have seen 10 paint balls shot at once.
Made me laugh out loud!

well, I used a 10 inch long pipe nipple 1/2 inch in diameter, with a 1/2 to 1 1/2 inch adapter wrapped in tape on the front, so it is shaped like a t. I'll post a diagram sometime.

yep, that was somewhere between 350-400 fps. I'm guessing more. the slug was found 500 yards away. yep, I had a milk jug filled with red water inside the middle ball. and jrrdw, I shot it from about 60 feet away, but I zoomed in with the camera.

tomorrow is the mp3 player video at 40 psi!

oh, I sound stupid in this video too. :oops:

just an overview of the blood splatter. :twisted:

like I said, the blood splatter.
