That rod in the can was sharpened, so it can't have INSANE POWER, but on the other side you can't really get a rod in a can without it being sharpened. This is pretty cool though. :D

its easier to get an unsharpened rod through 4 layers of cardboard then it is with sharpened, well, it was for me

author
bannana inventor made it! (author)bannana inventor2008-08-01

Yeah, I did a test with my guns and got the same result. :D

author
yerjoking made it! (author)yerjoking2008-08-02

I don't understand why though

author
bannana inventor made it! (author)bannana inventor2008-08-02

I think it's because when the sharpened rod goes in the card board it pushes the board to the sides, so it creates friction. The unsharpened rod just hits it and goes clean through.

author
yerjoking made it! (author)yerjoking2008-08-02

I thought that too, but didn't think anyone else thought so, because a sharpened rod makes a small entry hole, and an unsharpened rod makes a hole the right size, reducing friction

author
bannana inventor made it! (author)bannana inventor2008-08-02

That's exactly what I'm saying. :D

the only thing is that for a non sharpened rod, it takes greater initial force to get throught the cardboard because it has no piercing power.

i get unsharpened rods through 2 inches of styrofoam from a foot away, but not a can holding it up to the barrel

author
yerjoking made it! (author)yerjoking2008-07-31

i get unsharpened rods through 4 layers or corrugated cardboard from about 5-10 foot away :) but not with this gun, although i've never tried with cans

My Sniper can shoot a grey rod, not sharpened all the way through a cardboard box. meaning through one end, and out the other end of the box.

What does 100% accuracy mean?

author
pakman227 made it! (author)pakman2272008-07-31

it means, it hits the target 100% of the time

author
apples!!!!! made it! (author)apples!!!!!2008-07-31

impossible. it is impossible to have it go exactly where you aim every time.

author
j-chode! made it! (author)j-chode!2008-08-08

I went shooting with cadets once and I aimed at the target. That should meant that every bullet fired to exactly the same spot should it not?

author
apples!!!!! made it! (author)apples!!!!!2008-08-08

Not exactly. Close, but never exactly, let alone every time. And I was referring mainly to this thing he made.

author
j-chode! made it! (author)j-chode!2008-08-08

As was I, I just thought it was a relevant anecdote.
