    "You'll shoot your eye out... You'll shoot your eye out!" That looks pretty cool, but really dangerous...

    Nice one!! The brass bar projectile convinced me- I'm in the middle of the build now!
    Thanks for posting this! (I think I am going to make a shorter barreled model, though, and use a few extra fittings to place the tank under the barrel...you know- something that can be hidden in a rolled up newspaper...).
    Have you ever thought about shooting it into a stack of old newspapers that are soaked with water? It makes a pretty good improvised ballistic gelatin. You can peel the layers away to see how the projectile behaved once it hit.
    Have you ever made a dart for it?
