Response to HPA Breathing air
Using pure oxygen could be dangerous but it would be interesting to build a rifle that could cope with it.
I used to play around with putting a dab of petroleum jelly in the back of pellets in a spring rifle. The rapidly compressed air and fuel detonates just like in a deisel engine and makes the rifle more powerful (also makes a nice muzzle flash). You need to use a very light petroleum for it to work (Vicks vapour rub was the best I could find) but with pure oxygen a heavier oil with much more energy could be used.
