    Hey, I’m all for showing some ingenuity, but I sure wouldn’t want to be behind you on the highway when the tape let’s go and BB’s start dropping under your car. It may not play out that dramatically, but still, there is a risk…I’m sure you could find something a little safer at Home Depot that will create the same effect. Something that you can use a worm clamp with.

    Be careful not to shoot your eye out with the Red Ryder shift kit.

    AHAHA...I can imagine him saying that.

    Damn I love that movie.

    I tried to watch it with my 5 year old son last X-Mas, and he didn't really get it. Although he did laugh like hell at the little brother wearing 800 layers of clothes to go outside.

    You guys are missing the obvious potential for awesomeness here:

    If you were to engage in a high speed car chase with henchmen from an evil organization firing rockets at you, the heat from the nearby explosions would melt the tape, spraying the BBs out behind you. Then the pursuers cars would flip over and smash into strategically placed parked vehicles and explode into a fireball, at which point you could look over your shoulder and smugly say, "No tailgating", then drive to their girlfriends house and have sex with them while drinking a martini.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)
