Drink beer. You'll have more fun getting to the number of cans you need.

Huh? What? The cans are resting on the hood of a late 90's isuzu pickup truck, and the blown blob and blue blob in the background (if you can see them) are my Turd brown Mercedes and my little sister's 90's cavalier POS.

Do you mean to sell at a recycling center or to melt down and make your own?

I was actually going to do that in my kitchen, just pour some gasoline under the frying pan and leave a butane lighter on under it...should git er hawt enuf

Of course, finding a mold might prove problematic...

Absolutely...sure of it. Yep, I am.



I had this posted in the AR discussions but it got moved here...no clue why, since it's about AR15s.

Dip your AR in hot candlewax, then when it cools cut the wax off and use that for a mold.

I don't own an AR..yet. If the 6.8SPC gets adopted as the new rifle cartridge, I'll be the first inline.

FYI, I normally drink Root beer and or mountain dew, not Dr pepper. On this momentous occasion I had 2 1/4 pound hungbusters from Dairy queen that wanted a slip and slide ride down the ol' esophagus....

Currently, on average it takes 31.92 cans (assuming 12oz drink size) to make one pound of Aluminum (FYI: 24 years ago it took 21.75 cans/lb.... technology ay?)...... Another way of looking at this is that it takes approximately 2 cans per ounce............ but on to the math: receiver weight (in lbs) x 31.92 = # cans/receiver

gotta get tougher than this......
