    What if you put your ammo in a gasoline-bath and then shot it over a lighter/ candle?

    you can try it, but you will probably burn your bands or worse

    I dont know if it would work but maybe you could use some principals from<br><br><embed pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/flYwA9qCNQA" width="425" height="350" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" quality="high" scale="exactfit"></embed><br><br>seems pretty awesome<br><br>though I think the speed that the balls travels would likely blow out the flame

    with this you would need very slow bands and ammo speed to get the ball burning

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Maybe or maybe not. Unless the bands get into contact with the fire, there is no need to put a limit on its speed. By the way, the only option I can imagine for this to work is to put a band limiter at the end of the fork so it'll stop the bands but the ammo will still continue its path.<br><br>Here is a scope I made using MSPaint (sorry for the poor image <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"> ):<br><br><img src="http://img607.imageshack.us/img607/5695/burningammoslingshotbyz.png" border="0" alt=""><br><br>It is kind of crazy, but it might work... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_twisted.gif" alt="Twisted Evil" longdesc="13"></span>

    I think this could lead into desastrous accidents, for example in case the "source" explodes...<br><br>But in any case my "No Handslap" method would come in handy - the bands would be safe.<br><br><br>[youtube] <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VaHOxcflc7I%5B/youtube%5D" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VaHOxcflc7I[/youtube]</a>

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Sure, the risk is high and it is always there. But the risk of explosion exists only if you make use of some sort of oil/fuel source of energy. In the case of using some sort of electrical energy conducted by wires to create the flames there is no risk of explosion (but it is still dangerous because of high voltage usage to create flames - and it might be impracticable according to physics <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_scratch.png" alt="scratch" longdesc="33">). But who really needs flammable ammo nowadays? It is kind of a crazy idea since the beginning. I think it should never be put in practice. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt="Rolling Eyes" longdesc="14"><br><br>By the way, this is a nice method to avoid burning the bands. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"></span>

    i wouldn´t go that far...you will never see the "flames" anyway.<br><br>If i´d really wanted to light something on impact i´d go with a bend metal pouch, some kind of spacers between pouch and rubber and i´d shoot heated-steel-balls.<br><br>-way less complicated<br>-usable on any frame<br>-more energy on your target (a burning metalpiece carrys more energy then a burning cloth etc.)<br>-no limitations in speed of the bands (can´t blow fire out)

    I always wanted to make "mini molly" ammo. My idea was to fill paintballs with gasoline, alcohol or other flammable liquids, then roll the paintball in glue and attach amorces (firing caps) to the outside. <br><br>But unfortunately I could not find a loophole in the German law that bans such wonderful little fire makers. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_sad.gif" alt="Sad" longdesc="3">

    <span class="postbody"><br><br><br><br>I beg you pardon, but that calls for an O.T.<br><br>Stating that in Germany it is not allowed to question the Holocaust is one thing. It's an outcome of the hard democratic itinerary Germany decided to undertake, in order to settle scores with its recent obscure past. That in Germany "free speech is banned" is ill informed and prejudiced. It's sufficient to read the first articles of their Constitution (see on the internet), of which I quote the 5th, as concerns freedom of expression:<br><br>Article 5 (Freedom of expression). <br>(1) Everyone has the right freely to express and to disseminate his opinion by <br>speech, writing and pictures and freely to inform himself from generally <br>accessible sources. Freedom of the press and freedom of reporting by radio and <br>motion pictures are guaranteed. There shall be no censorship. <br>(2) These rights are limited by the provisions of the general laws, the <br>provisions of law for the protection of youth and by the right to <br>inviolability of personal honor. <br>(3) Art and science, research and teaching are free. Freedom of teaching does <br>not absolve from loyalty to the constitution.<br><br><br>No offence meant of course, but I felt my duty to amend a prejudiced opinion about a EU member state.<br><br>O.T. closed.</span>

    Convert your slingshot to an arrowshooter and shoot flaming arrows, medieval style <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9">

    art science and research are free, and isn't shooting slingshots an art, looking if it will work research and the reaction of the flames burning science <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>3) ..... Freedom of teaching does <br>not absolve from loyalty to the constitution.<br><br>We should read all the constitution so as to better assess this point. However, as free as science and research may be, I'm forbidden to test ammos on living beings, or, for that matters, carry out nuclear tests in my backyard, or teach how to torture children, because THAT clashes against the rest of the constitutional corpus (apart from moral and ethical considerations).<br><br>Then there are apparent inconsistencies, such as why are slingshots banned whereas shovels aren't (It's one of Joerg's points)? After all, if you want to kill someone it is more likely that you use a shovel than a slingshot, and there are far more shovels around then slingshots! The fact is that there is a law about it, and laws are to be respected, even though it is possible for any citizen to democratically dissent and call for a change. I've seen some humourus movie sketches in German by Joerg precisely on the shovel issue.<br><br>However, I think that we are drifting too much from the main point of this topic. The discussion is interesting but complex, therefore, if need be, I suggest to move it to another section, and since it's I who started it, I apologize with the members and the administrator. So My next post will stick to the post topic: fire ammos.<br><br>V</span>
