@ChevyM14,

If you read up on burntlatke and this site, I'm guessing you built a metered propane gun with a chamber fan, probably over/under, probably with multiple spark gaps.

What kind of pipe did you use? What dimensions (chamber size, barrel size?)
What configuration (inline, over/under)?
What's your ignition system?
Did you do ball valve venting or a cleanout?

Looking forward to those pics. I always like people that do their research first, and you definitely seem like one of them. Hope you stick around these forums.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

No need to get defensive, they were just commenting on how lucky you are to be able to shoot on the job. :D
This is a very nice, simple gun. I bet you can get some pretty decent shots out of it!

You really like chevy dontcha' 8)

Chevy-- Keep on firing that weapon man !!
License plate looked odd at that angle.
In that urban environ spuds are real safe, no ricochet.
Now GB's will fly faster, farther and hit harder.
I highly reccomend them, it is the next step in our addiction.
Keep on shooting.
