well people at the outlaw field I go to use trees to check thier volicity becouse we don't have a chrono. My question is if a marker is shooting at 280 fps how much bark will it take off of a ceder tree.?

Chrony's are cheap, and in the long run you'll be safer with one of those. I mean, what's cheaper? A handheld chrony you can store in your gearbag, or the medical expenses replacing a body part or healing a body part because a hot gun?

Chrony wins it.

that made me raise an eyebrow and laugh at the same time. I didn't get it, but laughed. Hmm, you puzzle me.

Chrono-ing with a tree is by far the worst idea if you want safety involved. Things like the moisture of the tree, how big, strong, type of tree, all that will affect the bark. I think you shuld by a chrono. go play at a field, chrono the gun, and never touch the switch again.

did I die for a second there?...

Just get all your goon friends... get 80 bucks (max) together and buy a chrono... do you really expect the forum to give you a square inch number of bark? Anyone ever heard of the Darwin awards?

heh, thats a bad bad idea, theres many inconsistencys in the bark....

some will break alot, some will break a little.

Youd be better off useing the second per feet method.

you take your idiot friend...stick the barrel on their skin...and fire! ;)
the amount of blood that pours out is directly related to the fps of the gun! try it. :)
