Ouuuh... PVC might be a -really- bad idea. If they are used for irrigation, they are probably DWV pipes = unsuitable for any cannon.

Wha?? Irrigation pipe is rated my friend, unless it is a drain pipe. SDR21 is used very commonly in irrigation, as well as regular sch 40. Large diameter water mains often have a rating of around 160psi.

ABS can be used on combustions but that other rated stuff your getting use that for a pneumatic cannon. Your lucky to get all of that, stock up while you can.
