How about you say which one you like the most. :P Then the other one will be dropped from the list (no need to remove it from the thread... that way if you change your mind, all I have to do is re-link).

In other news, it's time to attract a little more attention from those just glancing over this thread in the new posts list...

Here's my entry, i call it "Pump, glue and tape" I used an old balloon pump and cut the nozzle off. I hotglued a 6mm barrel on and taped it with masking tape for extra strength. I used a BBQ igniter with wires taped on. I poked holes in the pump using a pair of scissors and fed the wires through. No screws, just wire :)

The BBs in the chamber are used to mix the fuel (Deoderant)

looks ghetto :D

I decided not to make another gun, but just stack another one on top of the old one :)
Shoots well, makes an insane bang, wich freaks out parents and pets :D

Power is also very good for a 5 min crap.

Video to verify:

Damn this thing is loud!
I was struggling to get it to ignite but i pumped some air in with a small football pump. I wasn't expecting it to ignite but it made my ears ring and the BB dented my recently painted wall.

two questions before i get in to this:
1, I have found a metal tube in the trash but pretty new, may I use it?
2, one of my friend gave me some hydraulic fittings for free, may I use it?
If all goes well I will post my tomorrow afternoon (london time) :)

Go ahead, it's your choice. I would keep them in reusable shape for future projects, though. :P

Well, it's ok to do, but the prevailing trend in these sorts of competitions is that more creative use of cheap and common materials score higher. :wink: One of the reasons my entry probably would lose out to, say, clemsonguy's entry.

I was thinking about the judging. If entries keep going this way, there be a few too may entries for a poll. What if we got all the members who entered to vote for something other than their own gun, the mods, and a few other contributing members.

I think votes by PM based on a "score card" would be the way to go, but I guess it depends on how many entries we have by next week.

That sounds like the best idea. Hopefully enough people will take the time to vote.
