I recently made a combustion gun (pics and hopefully video coming soon) that would work well for paint balls. We shot marbles and home-made wooden/bolt ammo with success. It was a 4 ft. 3/4" Sch. 40 PVC barrel, and a 2" Y PVC chamber, with BBQ ignitor. Your basic spray & pray but it was worth half a day of very fun shooting. We shot wadded marbles and put dents in a wooden fence.

The definition of spudcannon should include combustion, if I wanted to shoot a pneumatic I'd go get my paintball gun.

It's called filtering. Use the recommendations by the search feature to narrow your results down and use key words.

I just searched 'AND paintball AND combustion' in the General section and found this straight away:
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/combust ... t1131.html
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/2-questions-t893.html

Then I just searched 'paintball' in the combustion section and found:
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/combust ... t5575.html
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/combust ... 11819.html
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/pump-ac ... 11142.html
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/paintba ... t9986.html
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/idea-t7701.html
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/paintba ... t6277.html

Then searching in the combustion showcase section, again with 'paintball' as the search term I found:
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/combust ... t1085.html

And about 15 others that i'm not going to bother to link.

And there's probably more if you search the How-To section as well.

So for once, please use your head.

That took me less then 5 minutes, so i'm not sure what your definition of 'all night' is.

So you state he is a jerk? :lol:



Another search hint:
If you put something between " " then you can search for everything thats between in that exact order.
If you would search for paintball combustion you would find EVERY page with the word paintball OR the word combustion on it.
If you would search for "paintball combustion" you will find every page with the exact query paintball combustion on it.
The use of "" makes you search for a handfull of words in that exact order.

Great hint I forgot about psycix.

I think searching 'AND paintball AND combustion' brings up every page that has both the words 'paintball' and 'combustion' in it. But your way could narrow those results even more.
