Hey fellow ghetto kings, i have constructed the "Sh!t Pipe" (pat. pending)!!
It's carefully constructed and is sure good to hold at least, well hardly any pressure at all :P It leaks real good through the piezo, (extra points?)
I think the jewel in this crown is the fact that it uses a dirty old shopping bag as burst disc material, never mind the fueling method involves injecting butane into ones mouth (not recomended) and then transiting it to the chamber. I'ts actually quite a precise way to go about fueling!
I used two tools to make it (me excluded). :roll: they are in the pic!

it's 700ml capacity,just about enough to snipe an armoured vehicle from around 2 miles away. 8)

I would love to enter.
I already have a great idea what to build, but it would take some time though...

About safety, well, maybe dangerous actions from people who are not knowing what they are doing would be disqualified.

Hey jonnyboy, the barrel was "aquired" from the toy room of my two boys so it could be off anything, it was originaly twice the length, so i just snapped it in half. :P
I bet you don't use a burst disc :geek: :roll:

Isn't being amazed kind of anti-thetical to the whole ghetto genre? Isn't underwhelming supposed to be the whole idea?

i did have a super ghetto combustion, which was just a drinks bottle with a barrel secured with tape (then held for firing to stop it from flying out) then i drilled a hole in the cap and shoved one of those Gas BBQ wand lighter things in :twisted: it looked awesome firing at night and it was very looud, but as i mentioned above i broke the ignitor and i don;t have anymore ghetto ideas yet :cry:

Output of cash seems to be the deciding criteria here. :)

Can I enter this? Built from scrap that was laying around the shop anyway. (beer drinking project. :D )

Shoots large marshmallows and "other things" as long as you hold on to the barrel.

Barrel is from an old vacume cleaner, valve is off of a chemical injection pump, propane tank pressure chamber, salvaged regulator, crappy 12v compressor running on an old LiPo battery, trigger is a gutted air grinder that was useless otherwise.

It's good for about 30 100psi shots on a charge.

Somehow I don't think that is considered "ghetto", Gippeto.

(At this point it is important for me to note that firefox's spellcheck recognizes the word "ghettoize")

Normally I'd take a shot, but I have too many guns sitting around already.
