Hi guys im new here so i thought i would put up some pics of the most recent gun ive built.This thing isn't that great it's just something i built out of spare gun pats lying around the garage and a y fitting i found at my grandfathers house.I am however proud of the way i mounted the ignitor this time,normally i cut off the tabs that come on the sides of the ignitor because the ignitor is normally mounted directly into the combustion chamber,but this time completely by accedent i relized that with the tabs on there it locks into place perfectly with 3/4 in pvc pipe.So i glued a 3 in peice onto one of the end caps and braced it with some wooden dowel.I like it this way so much that this is the only way im going to do it from now on.I will be making a trip to home depot in a couple of days for my next project wich will be used with a 1.5 in rifled barrel from spudtech.com and also just a standard 2 in barrel for launching projectiles other than potatoes,ill probably put some pics of that up if it gets sucesfully finished any time soon.

I think the user just aware the of the ethics, and behaviors of this forum.

Etc1990, I know on some other forums its procedure to make new posts for every picture. This typically cause some forums only allow one picture per post, for example the SpudShot forums. Stupid if you ask me, but whatever. In the future, put everything in one post, then if someone replies, you can reply with a new post. Basically, your posts should be next to each other. This known as double posting.

As to the gun, it looks nice... Ok, not that I can really tell between the shoots being taken in pitch black with the flash on, or just plain dark. Also the angle of the picture does not show the whole gun.
