Homemade Flame Thrower

#1
Like any red-blooded, masculine man of the male gender, I love PVC weaponry. You should too. If the concept of heading on down to the local Home Depot and transforming $100 worth of random pipe bits into a killing machine doesn't appeal to you, you're a goddamn pansy. Also, you're probably sane and will live significantly longer than I will. Nonetheless you disgust me, and I take comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will be nowhere near as humorous as mine. For those of you who laugh in the face of hypersonic shards of plastic puncturing your spleen, here's an intimate look at how I've kept myself busy for the past week: building a PVC flamethrower. If you're not interested in the building process, skip to the bottom of the post for the fire.

And his mommy wondered *why* the ATF shot him dead.

I have achieved similar results with a chicken Jalfrazi and a Zippo held to the ricker the following morning. Beware back-draft!

A spam geek with a flame thrower, heading for his local high school at this very moment.

And he pressure tested the plastic pipework in his mum's lounge with compressed air; the moron's guardian angel is working overtime.

I see your DIY flamethrower and raise you a DIY howitzer. A much more professional job.

What a bright lad and so very inventive. I wonder how long it will be before the Emperor Mong visits him with a subtle invitation to accept a Darwin?

Take geek to one side, sit him down, calmly ask "Tell me son, have you ever kissed a girl?"

Fcuking bedwetter. Still it is a cool gun though and every Sqn bar should have at least two.

I should also point out that, in UK, filling such a device with fuel and adding an igniter makes it into a prohibited weapon under the Firearms Act...



...minimum sentence 5 years.

Having followed both links and read the articles I'm probably red flagged by M16 as we speak.
For some reason it reminds me of a BBC news bulletin about a failed IRA RPG7 attack on a pig. The BBC went on to explain in full detail that the rocket failed to arm because it was too close to target and thus went clean through the pig without serious injury to the occupants. They gave a very well planned and step by step instruction on how they (the IRA) should have killed 10 squaddies, well done Auntie.

I didn't know about that. When? I'm surprised the BBC publicised it, if it was after 82. Mid-80s something very similar happened to a sangar in bandit country - RPG pointy bit went straight through without detonating. Occupants were convinced they'd taken a 0.5 cal round that had mushroomed, wouldn't believe it was an RPG till the warhead was recovered (about 200m away). What I do recall is how quiet the headshed tried to keep it, for the very reason you mention ... I imagine it's a safe topic now, what with decommissioning and all.

If memory serves it was around 75 time perhaps 76 just remember being very p1ssed off about it at the time.

Before my time then. I joined in 80 and was first in the province at the end of 84. Puts a slightly different complexion on the Beeb being loose-tongued about the fusing of the Argie bombs in 82. You'd have thought some bright spark would have thought twice, if they'd learned a lesson from 75.

I don't think the BBC is capable of "learning" lesson like this...

Most of the news articles are put together by junior staff with no understanding of the deeper issues.

...anyway journos can never resist an opportunity to show off how clever they are by explaining how somebody else has been stupid..
