i had gotten very bored of shooting ping-pong balls which wouldn't even travel 100 feet so i got inventive........ i took a bolt some nuts and a few washers and created the ultament projectile it will shoot through a 2 by 4 at 75 psi 8) it was awsome......untill my dad took them all :( since you all have complained on how vague this was untill now here's my response

1. take bolt and dropp a washer down onto the bolt the washer must be the exact diameter of the barrel

2 add a nut

3 add another washer

5.and so on untill you reach the end of the bolt

Must you post every thought that crosses your mind?

I got tired of eating cereal for breakfast every morning, so I took some flour, milk and eggs and made the most awesome breakfast food! (that is, until my roommate ate it all)

If you must post your random ramblings, at least post some details.

edit for MrPlow's following post:
Not just any waffles...
these were ROFLWAFFLES!

OMG WAFFLES LOLOLOLOLOL

Seriously, this forum doesn't exist as an inane thought repository. Its for the discussion of spudguns, and this parition especially is for discussion of ammunition. Kinda hard to discuss something (discussion = 2-way conversation) when you just make a super vague statement without specifics, pictures, etc...

I agree with freefall, either post something significant or please refrain from posting at all.

Now, if you had outlined a method using nuts, bolts and a washer that gave an <u>aerodynamically stable round</u> that would have been post worthy.

this is aerodynamically stable of course air resistance might be increased due to the washers but it is still a excelently aerodynamic round regardless
