Paintball Gun + Driveway Gravel = Good Times

Has anyone tried this or something similar? I would think this would be a potentially lethal (or certainly at least painful) experiment.

I should give a prize to the first person who posts pictures of such an experiment...

I don't think it would work. I think the gravel wouldn't form a tight enough seal inside the barrel of the gun and the CO2 would puff right around it.
But hey, all my gun learnin' comes from Junkyard Wars, the History Channel, and Discovery so theory vs. application are two different things.

Perhaps we could empty a paintball, and refill it with gravel.

Remember to videotape it so you can sell to "American Shooter" if the results are good, or "Real TV" if you smash your nuts.

I wish I knew you fellows before my nads were gravelsniped...

...sounds like I might've at LEAST gotten an autograph out of it...

Gravelsnipers make me think of Charlemagne.

Traditionally, you'd freeze the paint balls in order to turn the gun into a lethal weapon.

Also, Salt + BB Gun = Fun way to kill flying insects.

You mean crushed rock salt, or the finer grain kind?

Normal fine-grained table salt. You want it to be a fine cloud of unimaginable ruin.
