Hey stop the bitching about the overweight people and the businessmen. But yes I do hate bookworms.As for businessmen why hate them?Some of them are drug dealers run strip clubs,they are classed as "businessmen"of sorts,do they fit this stereotyping figure?Others such people that own large construction businesses and are businessmen,they most probably started out as the people on the bottom shovely crap and moving bricks and lumber so they would for sure be able to tell a shovel from jackhammer dont stereo-type.These people keep the money hungry society we live in alive.

Now back to the matter at hand.

Those curved handles and U-brakets are very nice indeed.Plus a good place to hide the ignition wires and the screws that hold it in look like nice "HEX" bolts which does add to the gun nicely along with making it look proffesional.

This cannon has nice curves..*prints picture,goes to room for 10minutes*

With this statement I thought you were pretty much making it clear that such was not in any way possible.

"Well, most people don't understand the concept of "moderation." If they did, America wouldn't be choc full of obese people suing McDonald's over their weight." ~PVC Arsenal 17

O sh*t, here we go again. BTW what in the hell does the fast food moderation in the United States have to do with moderation when heating a heat sensitive plastic? I guess while were at it, Ill expound a bit. I can only be responsible for myself, so I would not take the choice for America to intake fast food.

America being a fast paced society, we simply do not have time to prepare food for our selfs. Not that many people have sued McD's, once one considers the number of people eating there. What isn't it like over a BILLION people served? Sh*t that was like 6 years ago, I bet were at almost 2 billion. Also I must add the intake of fast food is not what is making Americans fatter, the lack of exercise is.

I eat fast food well over 200 times a year, and I maintain a ~8-10% body fat, and guarantee damn-tee you that I'm for physically fit then a lot of people of these forums. My friend set the record for the 100 meter dash, Navy wants to recruit him while only being a sophomore in HS, he is breaking records at tailback being only a sophomore, etc while he NEVER eats anything but fast food. His mom has not the time to prepare the food so they eat out everyday. He is extremely physically fit, yet he eats fast food. Hmmm, weird.

"Sure, it can be done. But there's not much room for error when you have a 3 inch flame burning at 3000 degrees right next to PVC. Hang on too long, and it melts or distorts the pipe too much to use. And you'll most likely end up browning the pipe no matter what." ~PVC Arsenal 17

Wow, were you just talking out of your ass? [JK] After seeing a few plumbers do it, I went home and tried it myself. This with no formal training, or any special skills. Id suspect the only one not capable to pull it off after first watching someone do it, is someone mentally ill. What really bugs me is your speaking out of no previous experience.

I don't care if you're the most physically fit. That doesn't matter. I was just making a point. Everything is bad for you in excess, whether you can see it or not. I can guaran-damn-tee that you're friend, though physically fit, will loose his good health once he decides to stop exercising.
Hell, drink too much WATER and your blood dilutes and you can die. Use too much salt you get high blood pressure. Eat too much sugar and get fat!

And Pimp... I can safely assume that you are one the brighter people in this world and obviously you have experience with making things. I'm sure YOU can do it. Go out and find some dumbass or one of those suitcase-and-tie-businessmen (don't they just piss you off?) and have them do it. Watch as they melt the pipe and then BBQ their hand. I know this guy and he's really cool and all but he probably couldn't tell a hacksaw from a screwdriver.

I was just making a suggestion. Use a blowtorch but don't surprised if your lack of skill makes you wreck it.

I always say "anything's possible" but that does not mean that whatever you're trying to do will be easy.

okay yea an example but u targeted americans in the process.

I was going thru the pages and saw two of my guns was thrilled. I can build guns but not good on computer.
BlUE GUN- 4th gun--Wanted to make a clean gun, nice paint and lines.
The handle was heat bent in my wood stove. With a low fire in the stove ,I
put gloves on and held the PVC in there untill it started to sag then I rolled it a bit (approx. 5 min. total heat) took it out and just pulled it into shape.
Held it a couple min. untill it firmed up, finished cooling in water .It's easy!
The cuts were made with hole saws in drill press. 1" pipe 1" hole saw.
Since all guns and pipe is straight I wanted to put a curve in for looks.
I'll help any one with the techniques.
BLACK GUN-Moved up to injected propane.And yes it's my " work gun"
