I know, but they weren't like the bird bombs I had. They were a lot longer and probably twice three times as powerful.


I was thinking about that later. The ones I bought at the gun show were probably three times as powerful as the ones I got at Firequest or Ammoquest or whatever it was called. Maybe even more than that, but I can't say for sure. I only know that they were way, way longer and a LOT louder. They made the other 37mm bird bombs sound like 12 gauge bird bombs in comparison. That's why I referred to them as "super-duper" bird bombs. They weren't regular bird bombs that you can buy at online stores. Not even close to the regular kind.

I haven't seen "gopher bombs" for sale anywhere in a long, long time either. I once had 2 boxes of them totaling 144. They were about the same explosive power and decibel level of M-80s. After I bought mine they said you had to sign a statement saying you were a farmer and needed the pest control devices because you were experiencing crop damage. Once they had the signed statement on file they would sell them to you.

Forget about the 9mm and 10mm. Here's a 66mm pistol!

X1 Products is now accepting a $20 DEPOSIT to reserve their X1 Stand Alone Launcher. The remaining payment will be due upon shipment for a final cost of $399.99. I don't know how well 3D printed parts will hold up to the recoil of launching cans, but if something goes wrong we should hear about it.
