The look is almost there. Love the control box and the wiring - but it looks too "new" to deal with the zombie apocalypse though, those screws and metal fittings need to be more rusty - and the labels should be engraved, not dymo labels ;)

Do you have different barrel lengths/calibres?

I've just got 2" and 1 1/4 right now... the 1 1/4 has a connection to fit inside the 2". both are 6 foot lengths, which are not the correct C:B ratio i know... my 2" barrell has a silencer on it which really quiets it down... do you like my latch connection in the 3" double t?

The APAH cannon.

It sounds like it's some clever "Armour Piercing Anti H*****" acronym, but it actually stands for "Avoid Pointing At Head" - and I guarantee you'll never shoot yourself in the face with a name like that.

Does that thing kinda look like a big cat to you?

ha. i like that idea... it is pretty clever. maybe it could be APC... so it could be "advanced potato cannon" or "avoid pointing at crotch."

Sweet! but it's not the actual ignition, yes, just an added set of electrodes? Technically it would be robbing energy from the actual ignition spark so it's not helping in terms of performance - I would shorten it significantly. But cool idea and effec, kudos!
