I've tried compressed aluminium foil "crumple" bound with veg oil as a body filler. Seems to work, and have some potential, but I don't do cosmetic repairs so I havn't tested it extensively.

If I ever have to make, say, an intake manifold, as in replacing my dodgy Aisin carburettor with 3 Nikei almost-like-SU-that-I-almost-understand-and-can-adjust motorcycle carbs, that might be a useful role for it.

As a projectile I think you'd need to be pretty close to the target. Wasn't clear from the video if it was spreading on impact dum-dum stylee, but it'd seem a possibility, though even then I'd doubt it offers any real advantage over casting the aluminium.

I think you can get lead foil that might be more effective. Wern't toothpaste tubes made out of some kind of heavy foil in the '50's/60's?

Incidentally from the chat on the range the guys seemed to be saying there was a "trend" for Americans to say (and presumably spell) aluminium correctly ("That's what the kids are calling it").

Whatever next?

Two ball thing, perhaps you could link them with some kevlar cord, give you something like chain shot.

I suppose amphibious landings from model saiboats aren't a big home invasion hazard. Might be effective against UAV's though.

Aerodynamic drag from the link probably pulls the shot together. Perhaps a spring might work better?

That looks really terrible. No more of a "footprint" than a slug, but with absolute [censored] for accuracy.

At home defense range, (10 yards / 30 feet), it was right in the boiler room. Can't ask for more than that.

I thought about loading with rock salt. Less lethal and more painful. Win win.

I think rock salt is more wives tale than anything. According to this test, you'd have to be within 10-12 feet for the salt to have enough energy to penetrate skin. That's way too close for comfort, although possible in a home defense situation.

I get your less lethal being a win comment. However, if a bad guy is in my house and lethal force was justified, I'd rather scrape his remains off the walls than make him mad with some salt on the skin.

Aluminium, like titanium

That's why I stuck with "Alfoil"
