i stand behind a brick wall when i shoot it, so its no big deal if it explodes, it will only burn a hole in my wallet and not much else.

oh ok.
Standing behind a wall is plenty of protection, considering I shoot my cannon at the hip with 2x mixes.

Dam but his cannon is cooler looking so shoulder firing is a must.

lol, this hybrid was originally going to be a 30lb. rifle with on board mapp gas/ oxygen injection system with a 500k stungun mounted on the side until my cousin told me that i was going to amputate my arm and possibly blow my head off. (actually he just said it wasn't smart)

it would have been the sickest, dopest, flyest, badest, coolest, hybrid in the land. now i look back at it and have decided that it is a good thing that i listened to him.

edit- it was also going to have a modified fire extinguisher so that i could carry it around. the FE would be the air supply. that would have been so cool, but i would like to keep living, so i didnt.

ya,I was considering making my hybrid all onboard, including a FE for air, but I decided I don't want to carry all the weight.

Sorry for the bump, but I was referenced.

Glad to see you got it done (a few months ago). You ever get it to fire? Blow anything up yet? :twisted:

Detonation deflagration transition ruins steel pipe lines. I wouldn't go there if I were you. You would need something much stronger than iron, but if you absolutely have to try it at least choose a material that won't fragment so much if it fails.

to be honest ive only tryed it twice, both on a windy cold day. it really is a poor hybrid. i never got it to work. i was going to redue it, but ran out of cash. someday ill make an accual working cannon.

when i did try it i was befind a brick wall, so even if it blew up i dont think i would be hurt.

again, it is a poorly designed gun.

You could easily make it extremely reliable using the parts you have right now, simply by rearranging them.

agreed, that thing has potential.
Just need to taken apart and rebuilt in a different configuration and redo all your calculations.

Try and keep the chamber all one size of pipe, shorten the chamber to union nipple to a close one.
Have it so that when you inject air all the excess propane gets pushed in the chamber too.
