SON OF A @$#%&!!!!

Man, I found a bunch of those Lazy Dog projectiles years ago at an antique shop, and passed them over as some kind of ill-advised child's toy from the 40s... I realized later they were probably something more interesting, but i could never find anything on them. And here you have a @#$%ing WIKI page! I'm gonna call the place tomorrow, they had dozens, literally dozens... If they still have em... well, I dunno, but I gotta have at least one...

Indeed, a penny would beannoying at best, but one of these would be a different proposition.

Removed the epoxied fitting from the barrel, I barely touched pipe wrench to barrel before it came off. Took the barrel off to get welded, I believe he's MIG welding the malleable iron fitting (with galvanised coat removed by me) to the barrel.

To make sure it all lines up straight, I found a 1.5" metal ball valve that had its seals destroyed by the hybrid and removed the smaller half from it (the right side in this picture) which allows the guy to thread the 1.5" nipple in to the ball valve half and lay it flat side on the ground with the nipple facing up. He can then place the barrel over the nipple to make sure its 90° to the ground and tack it in place or something.

Looky what I have here :D

He only charged me $20 even though I offered $30 (he originally said it would cost $30). The barrel is nice and straight, about as straight as you can get it. Beautiful.

Now I just hope you guys aren't going to criticize the welds :?

Your projectile has a curse, Le Maudit. It makes the cannons it is to be fired from become more sexy!

Perhaps I should loan it to JSR before I shoot it :roll: :D

Does that imply JSR's not sexy enough? :shock:
or...
...that you have no hope to find it after you shoot it? :cry:

The little blob and bulges are... kinda... interesting! :D

That honestly does look very professional. :laughing6: It should hold but it is by no means pretty.

Even worse, does it imply that if I insert the miniboy in my person and "shoot" it out, I will become more sexy?

:?

*ahem*

Grind, surely ;)

I meant that JSR's prototypes weren't that goodlooking (neither is this cannon, minus the barrel) :oops:

I was going to make some comment about not having rule 34 on the miniboy yet, but if I recall correctly we have already vaguely gone there at least once.
...I'm not sure if that is sad or awesome.
:D :D :D
