    Hello everyone! I've had some ideas for a pump-action altoids shotgun type slingshot floating around in my head for a while, and i was wondering if you guys could help me come up with some designs. Thanks for the input! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28">

    yeah, I thought that altoids would have a cool effect when shot at a hard surface (shattering into a cloud of dust) and would be (relatively) cheap and biodegradable. (just meaning that i could shoot them outside and not worry about having to pick them up, etc.)

    It wouldn't be very hard to adapt my pump mechanism to Altoids. Basically a downsized model. Could be a lot shorter, too - the lightweight mints won't need much rubber.

    Haha, when I read the title of the topic I tought it would be a pump action crossbow... that could fit in an Altoids-can! Stupid me... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><br>But it sounds like fun with an altoids-shooter too <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    Does anyone have any ideas on how it could be built to shoot multiple altoids (around 5) at once? That's where I was getting stuck. It would also have to have a fairly large magizine for the altoids, so you wouldn't have to refill it each time you shot.<br><br>P.S. <br>I don't really care about damage, this project would just be for fun. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    A pistol that shoots paintballs would be good
