There is absolutly nothing special about it.... Any Home Depot will order it for you if you ask.....dont forget the special 2 1/2 inch fittings you need as well... :lol: also any pipe company is going to make you buy a 20 foot stick, they dont sell 10 footers.... So be ready to fork out about 40 to 50 bucks for your pipe and fittings for your soda can barrel.... :wink:

The fittings I can get right around the corner from my house just not the pipe
When I bought my golf ball barrels I bought 10 ft sections

Actually, you can order custom lengths of any size pipe fromflexpvc.com. I'm currently waiting for my own order of 2.5 thinwall (2.6 ID) and 1.5 golf ball barrel. They sell basically any type of pipe/fitting that you would need for a spudgun. It might seem expensive to you for like $2.88 USD/foot of 2.5, but if you don't have access to in anywhere else (like me) its a great deal.

BTW; This is my first post but i've been viewing these forums for a month or so now and its the only sight that has everything you need to know about spudguns.

If you find someone nearby to share a 20 foot stick, the better. I split a 20 footer and then cut the 10 foot section into a 7 footer and 3 footer. The 7 foot works great on the larger cannon and the little cannon uses the 3 foot section.
