It shoots cl. .68 rubber balls:

But since it is a modern weapon, here is a very primitive knife-hand:

Great stuff and that mad max gun has a lot more power than I would have thought. Does it use compressed air?

Co2.  He said he got 17 shots from one cylinder. 

Timpa, did you know you can get .68 caliber pepper balls and tear gas balls?   :whistle:

I'm surprised you haven't come up with something better.

After all, how difficult can it be for you to come up with a low grade yield thermonuclear paint ball?   ;D

the really weird thing is why on earth isn't timpa a youtube millionaire ?

Less than 2000 subscribers ?
Have you seen some of the dross that's out there ?

I've watched people making models out of matches and setting them on fire.
And that's quality compared to some of the crap that's making people money. 

I think we need to make it a forum goal to try and get timpa to go viral !   
who's with me ?

I'm starting with a 'zombie apocalypse' theme. But I think we can cover a variety of interests !

While I agree with the dross statement, I would hate to see timpa's page require me to sit through ads, which is the only way that YouTube would make his page show up enough in recommendations or people's searches to allow his content to become viral.

I hate watching ads. There is so much good content on YouTube that you will never see because people opted out of monetizing their channels.  YouTube has really gone down the tube in the last 6 or so years.

Count me in!  I would even sit through ads to watch Timpa, as long as he doesn’t pause in the middle of his video to plug a video game or cook a Hello Fresh meal.

I'm confused what do you mean?

The AI that posts the menu on the home page of YouTube has programming that selects videos with ads in them. 

Ads make free money for YouTube. 

No ads, and the AI won't select that video.

Thanks guys  :D
There are good and bad things about commercialization. it is more viewers. And it is painful to watch.
Things have evolved on their own.

I appreciate everything that is said or done here.
