Cosmoboy: nekulor: Where I'm from, we have traditions and decorum. Those traditions dictate we have the decency to use shells in our railguns, thank you very much.

Why would you ever put a shell in your railgun? That shiat can explode. Just use slugs,man,slugs.

A weapon of this magnitude shouldn't be freely available to anyone that would wish to wield it!


God forbid they wander into a bass pro and buy an equally powerful slingshot...

nekulor: Gyrfalcon: nekulor: Super_pope: Meh, back when i was still in college I saw a box that had been built with an array of 50 stereo filtering capacitors like that. The rail gun they'd built would belch blue fire when you test fired the full bank, because it would flash-boil part of the aluminum slugs the thing shot.

Want. Personally, I'd like to take the fireworks exchange from last week's stupid fraternity fight article, scale it up to railguns, and commence shell exchange. For science, of course.

/Pike can't aim worth shiat.

If you had a real railgun, you wouldn't even need a shell. Any random trash would do, if the velocity was high enough.

If it's anything like the one my son built, it's gonna sound very similar to the proton packs when it's charging. Like in the elevator scene.

scottydoesntknow: ruinevil: It can't bring the bolt/bullet through a watermelon. Not even halfway.

That was only 1 stage. With all 4 stages it went straight through the watermelon. You can see it better on the tin can. Stage 1 just pinged the side of the can and dented it. All 4 stages put the bolt straight through both sides of the can.


The can showed some tumbling problems - needs something that will spin those slugs. And that was point blank range. Definately need to address that to get any kind of range on it.

Ceramic/Diamond rifle barrel with Sabot carrier... hmmm.

Strangely enough, I don't think this counts as a "firearm" under the law.

As to whether you could get it on an airplane, it's kind of a tossup. DHS is pretty unpredictable.
