Boys and their pyrotechnic toys

Some people have waaaayy too much time on their hands - certainly enough to assemble 'Seven "Cyber Cannon" fireworks strapped to a 3" PVC tube with handles that fires 1001 shots in about 45 seconds'.

Looks like they had fun.  I must try to figure out something like that for our next Blogorado gathering.  How about "Flaming Skeet"?  We'll whomp up something that fires flaming balls that can then serve as targets for shotguns.  (I have a perfect mental picture of Ambulance Driver settling down with a fresh case of 12ga. ammunition and calling loudly, with a big grin on his face, "Pull!")

I believe the canonical recipe is flaming tennis-balls that have been filled with Tannerite.

While that sounds like a lot of fun, do shotgun pellets have the velocity to trip tannerite?

That sounds like a lot of fun, actually.

the full-blown version of this concept.

1M rounds per min (180 round burst in 0.01 seconds)

they apparently actually manufactured and sold rail mounted add-ons

a 5 round 12G shotgun
a 3 round grenade launcher

Actually did it safely too! I'm guessing no alcohol was involved...LOL

We've had some fun with exploding targets but nothing this large!

Things might get sporty if Airforce One was anywhere overhead. It might take evasive action if the computers believed a missile had been launched. Somebody might spill their coffee.
