Oh My Gosh I Have to much PVC for me

Unread postAuthor: 808AirsoftGunner » Wed Aug 20, 2008 3:41 am

i got about 18' left in my yard.

wandering how much pvc i wanted,(if u dont want to read go to the bottom sentences ) well ill tell u my story. ok so i went to my local hardwhere store to buy some pvc for my air cannon i am finally making (already done). and so i went to the customer desk to order 2 feet of pvc and i did, so i payed for it now i need to find one of the workers to show me where the pvc and so he can cut 2 feet of my pvc. and when i gave him my order sheet he ended giving me 2 ten feet of 2 inch pvc. so thats how i got it free and if ur asking i payed $1.76 per feet and i ordered 2 feet and instead i got 18' free more wahoo!=)

so i am asking dose any one have any suggestions on using this left over pvc.
and i was wondering dose any one from hawaii want any free 2" pvc? :shock:

You can never have enough pvc.
But you should use it for more guns, ofcourse!

Just hold on to it. If you have a garage, a basement or a crawl space under your house, store it there and out of the direct sun. I have at least 10' or more of all of the popular PVC sizes from 1/2" up to 4" on hand. Never know what you will need.

Yeah, keep it for later, I still have about 15 feet of 1 1/2 inch that I have had since about May, and I have it cut into 5 foot sections, and I store it in my room, just so It doesnt get damaged by the sun(which I had to throw out about 5 feet of 1 1/4 inch PVC, because the sun made it soooo brittle, and made it a light brown color :(

I went to Fastenal to order some 3" fittings, and I accidentally bought them in the full package quantity. In the end it was a good thing, because now I have an inventory of fittings. A small inventory, but I have some couplings coming tomorrow.

My mom buys me so many pipe things it's not even funny... I honestly feel bad about it, seeing as I've probably cost my parents about $250 THIS WEEK ALONE. :(

After purchasing a plethora of pvc fittings for the pipe, make a two story slip 'n' slide fit for a wealthy hamster.





Or keep it on hand, that may be a better choice.

Or you could use the pvc to make some kind of ammo for a slightly larger bore.
Search for PVC rockets and you will know what I mean.

Here's another idea; LONG-BARREL HOWITZER.


Go for distance, buddy. I've always wanted to do one with soda cans. Unfortunately, I lack both 2.5" pipe, and land to shoot it.
