Has anyone used a caulk gun to make a "cross"bow?
Not that I know of, but it sounds like a good idea to me
No, but now that you mention it, it sounds like an interesting idea.
I don't see why it wouldn't work for one, haven't tried a bow yet but have made a few flame thrower type weapons in the past lol
I have no idea what that is... Anyone willing to fill me in on the topic?
EDIT: Okay, now I know. Sorry to bother you.
A caulking gun uses a steel frame and a hand lever actuated mechanism to push a rod down into the tube of caulking, forcing it out the tip.
Not sure why he thinks that would make a good frame for a bow? Or even a slingbow.
Except that it is designed to work under pressure. And if you gutted the mechanism, you could put an arrow where the center rod was.
The far end of the caulking gun probably would be conducive to mounting a whisker biscuit or similar arrow rest.
Take the centre rod out and it looks a bit like the frame of Joergs little desktop cannon, I'm sure it could work with a bit of fiddling.
You are spot on. Also a gun-shaped weapon is natural in our modern age.
The ridged frame, and obvious whisker biscuit placement
