Making a 12-Gauge Barrel out of EMT Conduit
In this video, I experimented with making a 12-gauge shotgun barrel out of EMT conduit. I wouldn’t go so far as to claim this is a good material for making barrels out of in general, but it worked well enough to be something worth considering as an improvised or expedient barrel.
Idaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of the US, the culture of Idaho still retains a frontier spirit of self-reliance. As host of TheIdahoanShow on YouTube, I endeavor to produce videos capturing this enduring pioneer spirit, at least as it is practiced by this Idahoan. Of course, shooting and associated ancillary activities are an important part of Idahoan culture, and so many of my videos pertain in some way to the making or testing of firearms and/or ammunition. Here on the Reloaders’ Network, I have endeavored to consolidate this portion of my work as a reference for the reloading community.
