Paintball Shotgun

“Hey, I shot you!” “No You Didn’t” … Yea that’s pretty much how it goes.

That thing must shooting those paintballs awfully slow.  Hardly any of them ever break when they make contact!

Yeah, not only slow, but the amount of time to reload something like that?

would be a lot cooler if the paintballs actually broke

That was pretty lame. That thing must be incredibly weak – at the end I think I even saw some paintballs bouncing off of the brick wall.

Um, wouldn’t that thing require re-loading between shots. (which is something I never saw them do)

So it’s no different than any bad action movie or cheesy TV show, where they seem to fire hundreds of rounds from the same magazine, not only not showing them reloading, but with no lull in fire either.

Paintball Sabot. Does that work? Has anyone tried that before? (or were you just joking)

well a paintball is .68, and i haven’t measured the interior of the shell diameter but i have some parafin… this probably won’t end well which means i should probably make a video…

I’m afraid that the, high powered, sudden shock from detonation of the powder in the shell will rupture the paintball/s. Also, they make a few different size paintballs.

(not listed but there are also 6mm paintballs meant to destroy the internals of airsoft guns)

Small charge + Expanded polystyrene sabot

i have a couple grenade launching blanks, halving that charge should give me some reduced velocity, i’ll do the math when i’m sober.
