Blowgun safe for use

Unread postAuthor: limbeh » Fri Jun 15, 2012 9:18 am

Hi guys,

I'm finally out of my 2 year conscription term! Back to the world of spud chucking.

Anyway, I bought a blowgun and accidentally dropped it. In the meantime before I figure out how to make a working piston valve, I'm planning to use this for a QEV cannon. Max pressure 160 psi.

Do you think the blowgun will fail? Never done a piston cannon before, so I dunno.

Thanks.

Welcome to Singapore.

The laws are stricter concerning spudguns than anywhere in the West.

Even the Aussies for all they complain have it good compared to us.

If you mean fail as in will it work with that setup then maybe! It sure didn't work for my piston valve cannon, much to low in flow. Maybe you can get away with it on a smaller cannon. (like 1 inch bore)

Very very much doubt the blowgun will blow up in your face haha, Most shops just turf them on the workshop floor half the time anyway :P

What are the laws like in Singapore wrt to spudding? Your signatures got me curious now XD

@Desmo: I've been spudding since 2008, just inactive from 2010 onwards till now due to conscription.

My piston valve has a 1/2" barrel. If you're familiar with QEVs, let me check: it's refill from the pilot valve right?

The attitude in Singapore is "if in doubt, it's (probably) banned" and the law certainly reflects it.

Most of my time has been spent dodging killjoys and police rather than seriously spudding. Lol
