Well, actually a gun that SHOOTS pool noodles.
A "Pool Noodle" is a 3" round, 5' long hunk of polyethylene foam used for
kid games in the swimming pool. I originally bought one to use as insulation
on my A/C Freon line ($1.50 vs. $7.00 for the Home Depot kind). I mentioned
this on another group and people started commenting on various other uses
for Pool Noodles, insulation, shock-absorbing material, spacers for infant
car seats, etc.
One application is shown on the video below. Take a PVC pipe and seal it at
one end. Into a plastic bottle, drop some dry ice, water, and screw the cap
on tightly. Drop the bottle quickly into the PVC pipe. This is the
propellant. Just as quickly, drop in the projectile: Croquet ball, small
animal, or, in this case, a Pool Noodle.
Sounds like fun, but I'm puzzled: how could you use one of these
"noodles" as pipe insulation? Are they hollow? I'm imagining something
more like a solid plug of foam.
So, are you also a potato-gun practitioner?
"Wikipedia ... it reminds me ... of dogs barking idiotically through
endless nights. It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it.
Well, actually, the above post was meant for the tx.guns newsgroup. THIS is
the "other" newgroup mentioned in the post. If you scroll down, you'll find
the original post with a subject of "New (use for a) product."
In case the original post has rolled off to oldpost heaven, yes pool-noodles
are hollow and can be easily slit with a table saw or electric carving knife
(the tool of choice when dealing with foam anything).
No. I own three Glocks, two Colt automatics, and two Beretta pistols. I also
own an AK47, an UZI, a couple of scope-equipped rifles (to "reach out and
touch someone") and a couple of short-barreled shotguns.
Just your basic household set.
Come visit us at "tx.guns" - it's a hoot, what with the Heller decision of
yesterday and all. Every once in a great while some anti-gun devotee shows
up with irrefutable arguments bolstered by iron-clad statistics. They
generally leave enlightened and in favor of a monarchy.
