    This is madness.

    Can you do me a favor and mash a potato in there and show us the terminal effects vs. oh say...... that same cinderblock?

    Yeah, I'll do two more videos tomorrow, a potato and then a 40mm chalk practice round.

    Unfortunately, I can only post 2 pictures before I'm maxed out on Glocktalk, I'll try to erase the other pictures and post one tomorrow. Until then, here is a link to the Gunbroker auction http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=283257612

    The potato vaporized on the cinder block (I would have hated to get hit by it). I also shot a 40mm chalk practice round and it kicked like a freaking mule (about like a 10 gauge). The practice round shattered the cinderblock and created a nice chalk cloud inside the shop. I'll post the two videos later today. I've fired 40mm before and this kicked a lot more; so I would guess it was moving down range a lot faster than normal (I'm guessing 3 times the propellant with a full load 12 gauge blank).

    You're so smart. I did not even consider that. All those others are welded. I'm gonna grind them today.

    It looks like I have finally found something that will replace the driver in my golf bag.

    Yup...Every golf bag needs a 12 iron (for the long shots and those that might cheat).

    Here is a video of the golf ball launcher firing a 40mm chalk practice round. I think the chalk was actually leaking before impact. I am currently developing a jumbo 40mm shotgun wadding that should take care of this problem.

    You Sir, are outstanding. If I owned a Saiga, I would drop the dough.

    In a little over a week I will have them for 1/2" x 28 (AR's, 22lr and anything else with this thread pitch) and 5/8" x 24 typically for AR 10's, but a few other weapons as well.
