    I wouldn’t make the pipe gun. Because it could blow up on you.

  • JJM says:

    Pipe Gun – Did it work? Why no video of test fire? I would be somewhat concerned of standard galvanized pipe surviving more than a couple shots, stock and barrel remaining firmly attached and mostly with where the firing pin/nail ends up – off-the-shelf tapered pipe threads do not allow you to union the pipe and plug close together!!

  • Steven says:

    H questions about used plastic milk cartons, can you store sugar, flour, cornmeal yeast, and other bulk items in them? Several ?s, where can one get answers to specific, not generalizes, questons?

    • Raychel says:

      I actually use 2 liter soda bottles to store bulk food items in, once I have rinsed them out of course. I just drop in an oxygen absorbent packet before closing it up if I plan on storing it for a while. Milk jugs are very hard to get completely clean, and the milk proteins that you may not be able to completely remove will spoil your food items. Better safe than sorry; especially when storing food for emergency situations and the price of food these days.

  • Smoke Hill Farm says:

    If you use iron pipe for any of these projects, keep in mind that this material rusts faster than anything else on earth, so you should clean it with some degreaser and PAINT it immediately. A few bucks worth of Rustoleum or some of that plastic-based paint will go a long way to keep it usable. On the un-paintable parts, like the inside of that gun barrel, be generous with a coat of oil that you replenish occasionally (unless you shoot it regularly).

    As far as using black pipe as a gun barrel … it has been done and used before, but it would probably be a good idea to reinforce that barrel with something else, especially if you plan on using it a lot during the zombie apocalypse. You can wrap it with a later or two of steel wire, and then wrap it with heavy duct tape, to keep it from doing serious damage if that barrel turns into a banana, which could happen if you are shooting heavy shotgun slugs or buckshot, esp. from the longer shot shells, and even more especially if you use a rather long barrel, where the energy of the explosion inside has more time and room to build up.

    • Smoke Hill Farm says:

      I just noticed that the one improvised weapon seemed to use regular gray iron pipe instead of black iron pipe (the kind usually used for gas connections instead of water connections).

      I have heard MANY times that the black pipe is the only acceptable one for improvised weapons since it is a different category of pipe and MUCH MUCH stronger than the regular water-pipe stuff.

      The difference in cost is small. Be sure to get the BLACK iron pipe, unless you want to risk it blowing up in your face !!!!!!!

    […] 7 Awesome DIY Weapons […]

  • Bob says:

    a trebuchet would be the most impractical weapon. I couldn’t see any situation one would need to use this, let alone transport it to be used.

    • Left CoastChuck says:

      For neighborhood defense, a trebuchet is a most practical weapon. You have barricades up at the entrance to your neighborhood. You want heavy artillery zeroed in on your barricades. The trebuchet can throw short pieces of log, it can throw heavy rocks, most importantly, it an throw bundles of burning material. Consider the effect on bad guys trying to breach your entrance barricade when bundles of burning, dried out weeds start raining down on them. Because of its high arc, a trebuchet can drop loads behind a barricade that flat trajectory weapons cannot penetrate. Loaded on a trailer, the trebuchet can also be made into a mobile launcher. If you study pictures of medieval sieges, the trebuchets were wheeled in order to be mobile. They were used to throw objects over the walls of fortified positions, much like a mortar or howitzer does today. As another bulletin said, in a desperate situation, your mind is your best weapon. Think, plan, adjust.

  • butterflyer says:

    If you use pipe liik for schedule 60 or 80 it has thicker walls and is thus stronger than common schedule 40 commonly sold in big box stores

  • Zach says:

    Be careful with the pipe gun. That is a textbook example of a “zip gun” and is restricted in a lot of states (including pro gun states like Texas). Other places restrict catapults and trebuchets just the same as they ban stuff like slingshots. And flamethrowers are illegal in ten states (it’s only a misdemeanor). Check your local laws before making stuff like this.

    Geat site. I do flintknapping and weapon recreation work, and you have some great ideas.

  • Spylock says:

    The guns made from galv. pipe do work well in a pinch,but the person making them can make it a better,safer gun with a little effort.We used to call them “Zip Guns”You can make just about any cal. you can find pipe for,we made 22 cal. out of trans. line,you just have to offset your firing pin for rim fire,but this should be a weapon of last resort,of course yall know that.
