Will he be persuaded at launcherpoint to offer his services on a street corner in order to fund a replacement vac? :D

Haha he doesn't need too. It was an old vacuum cleaner he wanted to sell to make a quick $20...surprisingly, considering he's my dick-head older brother, he never asked me to pay him reparations for the damage...wonder if the launcher had anything to do with it :D

hehe I assume that now that it's been rendered useless, it will now be donated to science and converted into a device more useful for straining pasta as opposed to dust removal ;)

It would have been amusing if suspicious fluid was flowing out of the entry/exit wounds :D

One would find it strange that this kind of talk doesn't surprise me one bit on Spudfiles :P

n. DYI backstop:
A situation in spudgunning where what's behind the target is something you would probably prefer not to have a hole in it, but which ends up with one in it by mistake.

Damage of the accidental backstop is almost always of impressive magnitude. Almost always a result of a cannon exceeding expected power levels.

Yeh, like the neighbors fence (I checked, the marble only buried itself in it's own depth). I truly didn't think it would go through that many layers..

You have to be careful with marbles..the things come back just as fast as you shoot them

That's why I have a huge foam block on the end of the barrel. Not like a lead sinker will bounce back, but just in case.

I've done something similar blowing up 2L bottles. Although I've never shot any that have had liquid in them. What's the result? Well I guess its pretty good if you say anyone within 15k's would be mad at you.

Noise I would suspect would be similar to bursting them from pressure, but if you're anywhere near it you feel the concussion.

Water is purely up to you, it will reduce the noise a little but it makes for a much more visually impressive display. When I have my fridge compressor going I'm gonna blow up a few bottles.

Rag, have you added that to the spudding definitions on the wiki :D

The lesson we always forget is never, ever underestimate the power of your launcher, nor should it be pointed at anything you do not intend to destroy.

Just ordered 50 1oz (3/4") lead fishing sinkers :twisted:

I also found a huge ass aluminium foil cooking tray at the supermarket for $3. Must be about 60cmx30cm, I reckon I can get close to 100 burst disks from it...just gotta cut them out. Any ideas on how to do that quick and easy would be much appreciated :)

2 of these disks are enough for a 4x mix.
