I've found older versions of Photoshop can do it but not the newer versions.

BTW, I don't think you need to change your avatar! I like it! Its unique!

I have to agree + it usually takes at least 4 generations before Dutchmen (or netherlandish people) can look at the soccer worldcup without turning orange... so you have to be carefull, kicking off from such a desease can have nasty consequenses Smile

They sell fully automatic electric airsoft guns shaped in many popular rifle profiles (they are physically on the outside clones of real firearms) that you might want to check out.

Although its not a real gun, if you have a decently sized hallway you can practice trigger control with it when stuck indoors, which atleast carries over to a real firearm seeing as the recoil happens after the bullet has exited the barrel of a firearm if you pace yourself.

If you want more excitement, a GBB (Gas Blow Back) offers recoil, and is still safe to shoot indoors, generally in various pistol configurations or even rifles such as the AR-15 or AK-47.

That orange hair was for a few weeks in 2005. It's mostly gray now.

Thanks, Vince. The photos I had hoped to use won't work with this. I guess there's too much detail. I had hoped to convert a photo with my daughters, maybe one of these:

I wound drive a two inch pipe part way into the ground ; Drop a M 80 firecraker into the pipe ,then put a empty tin can over the pipe which would get air born-- I emptyed the powder from two of dads shot shells into the pipe before putting in the M80 but the fuse must have caused the power to burn before the M 80 went off. Darn that was over 65 years ago.

Gidday Bracer...reminds me of the stories Dad used to tell us as kids.

We would do similar only not use the pipe...light the cracker (or bunger as well call them) put a can over it and get out of the way. Letter boxes were another prime target. The two "big" bungers we had were a 1d (penny) bunger and a 2d (two penny or tuppeny) bunger. The 1d was about the size of your index finger and the 2d was about 3 inches long and and inch thick. The 1d would take the lid off a letter box and the 2d would make a square letter box almost round as a ball.

Of course there were also the Bunger Guns...a 1d bunger in a piece of 1/2 inch water pipe, a marble on top the point it at the target...never a person because these things were vicious.

As we got older we started "playing" with various chemicals...but that is a whole different ball game and dangerous.

Cheers, Vince

I regularly confiscate "flyspray" guns the like that Vince has elaborated on. Technically they are a firearm but some of the fishos here use them to fire their baited rigs out to sea, saw one throw a 10 gm sinker and hook and bait about 200 meters out which is well over the normal range of rod casts.

We shot one off one nightshift from the 3rd floor of the station and there was an almighty muzzle flash about a meter long and the ball of paper we used as ammo was a soaring fireball for about 30 meters, we fair shat ourselves and ran out to find it before it caught something else alight. So? it was a boring nightshift but not for a few minutes. I thought about it afterwards and thought about the "what ifs".

I can however get a real good plan should anyone be interested, actually theres a heap on the net if you look..

If you connect a inline flash suppressor, the kind on welding equipment, a pizo fuse off a BBQ and use mechanical tubing (tubing meant for use as a structural component over say copper piping or electrical piping) you can weld yourself a pretty nice propane spud gun. That out ranges the typical PVC tube and hair spray contraption teens build.
