And now... The moment you've all been waiting for...

You've read my signature, but that was just an idea. Now, see the real thing...

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you:

THE CRUTCH2K's!!!

Behold!

Posted Image

You can see the materials I used in the background... Zip ties, electrical tape, and kitchen scissors. All professional grade!

Posted Image

I've got a nice little built in sight on there... It's actually a thumbscrew that holds the handle in the crutch. It works great as a sight! Sorry about the flash on that one, my super-mondo-vastly expensive 5.5 megapixel digital camera has too many features; I don't know how to turn off the flash... It's set on like auto-flash or something.

Jimi Hendrix 0wns y0u! He r0x0rs y0ur s0x0rs 0ff! Anyways, in this one you can see both crutches because one is the Crutch2K and the other was used to take the pic. I actually have an AT2K on the other crutch too, but I attached it after I took the pic.

Screwed up image removed.

As you can see on that last picture, one of the dart heads fell off, and the zip ties are loose. The dart head, well I didn't notice that when taking the pic. The zip ties are all messed up because our carpenter dude tried to file the rigid things down for something (I really don't know why) and now they don't stay, so I had to use electrical tape to hold them, and it came unstuck...

I'll admit, the integration wasn't very good. But it was the idea that I think was cool. I haven't had the time to go out and get materials, but I should be able to get some tomorrow. I'm probably going to single barrel one of the 2K's then quad the other. I was thinking of making it more sleek, like getting rid of the case and just leave a keyring trigger, the pump, and the barrel along the side. I also put the blue 2K on the wrong side, so that last picture was hard... I think the main problem was that my zip ties are screwed up. When you zip them, they don't stay! Stupid carpenter dude...

Now what would be cool would be making the main leg of the crutch into a barrel, then just put the tank with a couper or something onto the barrel, so the firing pin is close to your hand, and with some bondo work, you could make it fairly concealed. It almost makes me want to get crutches.

That's what I was thinking in the first place, but there's one problem. I don't think a barrel alone would be able to support somebody without being damaged, so I would have to nest it. And the main crutch leg isn't circular. It's shaped like this: )( I don't think I would be able to fit anything in there, it seems too small. And you might want to get crutches now, except for the $40-$50 price. Yeah... I only got them because I needed them - I broke my ankle.

Thats really cool, I have a pair of crutches that are rounded on the bottom so I might just try that ompa, and how did you break your ankle?

and how did you break your ankle?

I'm not gonna answer that one just because how I broke it is really lame. But then again, how I broke my wrist was lame. And how I broke my front teeth was lame, too. Whatever...

I was thinking of single barreling the 2K and then having the barrel run down beside the main crutch leg. Then I could just duct tape around the whole crutch.

If for any reason this doesn;t work out, or you just decide to trash the crutches, the back parts would make AWESOME stocks!

Through my battles with Osgood Slaughters disease (Its not really a disease, just extremely painful growing pain in which my knees locked up) and spraining my ankle, i have thought about making the crutch itsled into an airgun. Just seal the back paart of it, hook up a pumo of co2 tank to it, hook it up with a solinoid to a magazine of some sort, (never got that far) and poof, you have yourse;f a crutch gun.

Osgood-Schlatter disease really sucks; as for the crutch gun, I have a pair of old crutches laying around. The trigger would definately be placed around the handle part, concealed of course. I've just finished up making a semi-automatic pressure regulating valve that looks like it will fit inside the crutch's aluminum piping. Just need to work out how the darts would be loaded; I definately do not want to have to ram each one down the bottom of the crutch. Just imagine dual-wielding nerf crutches.

NJ Joke: After spraining my ankle and going to the hospital with Langely and Fred after ECNO, I come out on crutches and the first thing out of Langleys mouth is, "We're integreating a 1500 onto that!"
