  1. In Topic: Any great days yet?

    My favorite day was when I actually got to see someone step on one of my paintball mines. CO2 threw about a quarter pound of baking flour all over the guy. Totally worth it.

    Second place comes when I went into a game with nothing but a plastic toy dagger (medieval play sets for kids. Yes, I had permission). Got two people out with the thing ;)

    my buddy is a mechanical engineer and actually built one. He loaded it with paintballs, and it worked somewhat. depending on the field though just using the foam footballs count as hits too though. I like the concept, I just don't know how practical it really is.



    Making a mortar that fires paintballs will have more of a demoralizing effect, since it is impossible to actually hit somebody with one.

    Remember, we run into a problem that is terminal velocity. A human body in freefall falls about 150 f/s. A paintball is less dense, likely has higher drag, and a lower mass. Therefore, it will fall more slowly. What happens when you get it by a paintball going under 200 f/s? It doesn't pop, therefore it is impossible to hit someone with indirect paintball fire.
  3. In Topic: Where did all the paintballers go?

    Not to be redundant, but it is the economy.

    Each paintball that I shoot costs me 4- cents. That means that one game can cost me 8 dollars if I use a full hopper =(

    Springs have been brought up before, it wont be too practical.

    If you really want to experiment with this concept, instead of springs, get yourself some heavy duty latex tubing. You will probably have better luck getting it to work with the latex tubing, it would be lighter, cheaper, and more forgiving.


    Definitely. How about this bro? Get a hunk of pvc, attach two ends of latex tubing to the front, pull the middle to the back of the tube, then place the grenade in front of it.

    Wallah, you now have a grenade slingshot.
