Noice.

That setup turned out really nice! Not a lot of experience with lasers, but with the power of that laser can you see that far away with it in a daytime setting?

As these guns use a similar setup, although a different barrel are they one in the same? Cant tell after a bit of revision, besides the fact that the cord for the ignition is longer on that of the gun pictured on top.

If you wouldn’t mind could you take some close ups on the cannon itself? I see you did some paint, which looks good at a distance and you got some logos or something. Also when you gonna do this thing up with propane injection?

I like it, I like it a lot. ;-)

And on to subjects unrelated to the gun itself:

- In which way did I not help you...? Well if you so care were starting a new contest. Im tossing up the rules a bit and allowing the users to vote instead of the mods.
- I also de-ALL CAPPED your title. All cap titles will be edit because quite frankly your post shouldn’t attract more attention simply because you typed your words that way.

EDIT - I posted it all as I was able to finish this post before having to go to school. So if any one is going 'WTF?!' its cause I edited my post.

I do like it!, very nice and unique as well. I also say put up some more pics of the cannon itself. It looks better in the first pic. Again well done.

I must agree this cannon 'cuts sick'.Is that a noise supressor in the first picture were you are holding it?

It took me about 4 private messages before I was allowed into the contest and even then my gun was over looked in the judging.

Pimp I see a problem with your way of judging.People might get there forum friends or make new accounts and give themself an un-fair advantage over the other people that submitted to the contest.So why not just have all the modderators or certain judges set out to choose the winners.

Ohh and I am giving this gun a 10 out of 10.I love it!!!

apology to Pimpman

Unread postAuthor: WAYNE » Tue Nov 28, 2006 9:41 am

I owe pimpman an apology, i guess i was getting frustrated not being able to get my cannon on the page like al the other cool ones.

PIMPMAN I apologise, thanks for putting ZEUS WHERE EVERYONE COULD SEE IT. AS for the design, the stickers say GLOBAL FRAGGING PERMITT 80997,and the suppressor makes it quieter, it used to sound like a 12 guage, but now a very loud 410 shot gun.
I will get better pics soon. heres a picture of my daughter shooting ZEUS, and A different angleof it.

happy holidays everyone, and a happy new year.

The picture where i am shouldering it is the combustion chamber.
the frony of the gun is the 3" supprssor,that surrounds the 2" barrel.

I found out hat when you do a peizo ignition BBQ Clicker, that you must keep the wires apart, or you get a spark bleed ou, and you do not grt a good spark. when you look through the scope you get a perfect lazer dot in the middleof the sight. and yess somtimes you can see it during the day. Harbor freight sells the lasers for 12 bucks. thw wholw gun cost me about 65.00 to build. IT is alot of fun. oh heres a picture of my wifes TATER TOT BUSTER. sorry i wish the picture was better.

Looks good. You should try fuel injection, (propane, MAPP, etc.). Makes it overall easier and more powerful to shoot.
