you should wait until you have the proper glue. super glue is not what you use when building a cannon.

for pvc you use pvc glue.

for abs you use abs glue.

for copper you use solder.

get the idea? super glue isnt for plumming parts.

Use the right type of glue (pvc cement for pvc pipe) because since pvc doesn't show up on an x-ray, when your cannon explodes, doctors will have a pretty hard time finding the shards.
