I still dunno why you guys haven't swapped over to Pasload fuel. It's butane, costs 13 bucks for two cylinders that will be good from probably a thousand shots, and is way easy to meter in.

Drill a shouldered hole to accept the tip that comes with them and press three times. The bottles are self metered.

Best I've found when it comes to ease of use, well worth the extra $$.


Or, go pneumatic! :-)

yeah it does, look at all the flammable ingredients: Denatured alcohol, butane HFC 152A, isopropyl Myristate

my fuel of choice = propane

500+ shots for a $2-$3 disposable torch tank, cant get that off a can of right guard hehehe

and modifying a typical combustion for metered propane isnt all that that expensive either, you'll save in the long run by saving on fuel costs

starting fluid is great, you only need like a 1/2 second of spray to get an awesome shot, lights the whole chamber up at night time :)

chances are, if it works impressively well you found an old can that still had the three best flammable ingrediands: propane, butane, and isobutane. i found a ton of small cans of the good stuff at my ski resort in vermont, smugglers notch. if it just works ok, then its the denatured alchohol working. we tend to shy away from things with denatured alchohol because the performance is less than desirable.

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08
