    Here is my first sketch for a two-hand-operated chest mounted lance thrower.<br><br>The design is based on the pencil launcher of course, but with the power of both arms, this will be one terrifying weapon.<br><br>I hope that I can launch the heavy aluminum tubes with steel spikes (45 cm total length, = 18") at 50 m/s (164 fps). That would be 143 Joules = 105 ft.lb of energy, with tremendous penetration potential.<br><br>My goal is to make this the world's most powerful muscle-operated, one man portable repeating weapon!<br><br><br><br><div style="margin:auto;text-align:center;width:100%">

    what is a lance
     

  3. A lance is a spear like weapons used by "heavy horse" or knights in ancient times, it also is a word used to describe various piercing instruments.

  7. I was part of the conversation, as were others. We all had input. And no problem about the info, even people I "don't like" have the right to honest info that will keep them safe. Any arguments I have with people, especially over the internet, I still wish no one harm.
