I eventually wound up getting a PyroWizard(TheatreFX) double barrel shooter, since I got 25% off at Hocus-Pocus.
Man, this thing is cool. I like these kinds of gadgets ! They use glo-plugs, so, no flint to worry about. I'm sure Hasletts' are really good too, if not better, but I just couldn't drop that kind of buckage right now.
The only thing I could possibly complain about, is, I think the barrels could stand to be just a little bit smaller than they are, but overall, they're really what I expected. W00t !

I agree those double shooters are very very nice...

I'd love to order a set of two. Gotta get some magic cash somewhere soon, my credit cards are crying again Smile

The one thing I thought would be a quick and easy modification, is a safety kill switch. When loading it up, it's too easy to lose the plastic washers when you disconnect the leads to each glo plug, so I just put a slide switch in that cuts off the ground, which was sufficient. Works like a charm, in fact.

Nice, so how hot do they get in your hand, if at all? And how far would they shoot with one page of the small mooks of flash paper? what about half that page?

Thanks,
Daz

To add to the ideas above, When Mystican first said his ideas, I immediately thought of using it to start a grill (with gas) or a camp fire (with lots of ligher fluid on it).

They don't' get hot at all, really. No problem there.
You might want to watch that you don't curl your fingers in when shooting, but other than that, it's not an issue.

What's a mook ? Did you mean one page from a book of flashpads ?
That's a good amount to use, between 3" x3" and 4"x4".
I'd say, about 6 - 8 feet, sometimes more. Depends on your ratios among other things. If you use too much flash cotton , it blows the flash paper out without even igniting it !
It's fun to experiment with different amounts and shapes. I want to try a "torpedoe" of flash paper and cotton next Smile

I showed mystician my own version of a "6 shooter" that I built myself.

The device is wrist mounted and the barrels go on the bottom of your wrists.

I wear it with a jacket and mounted the buttons on the hmmm are the sides of the jackets collars called Lapels?

mmm... 6 shots without reload, and nothing in your hands.
The device uses glow plugs...
I will post pictures soon.

Yep, lapels.
The part of a garment, such as a coat or jacket, that is an extension of the collar and folds back against the breast."
Yet you'd think it was pronounced like "labels" only with a "p". Silly English language. (or is that french ?)

The wrist mount idea was cool, how Spiderman-like can you get ? Next you'll be slinging IT outta those things. heh
