Could I have some advice?

Mods could tag threads with popular information so they could pop up first

That would be helpful because most of the thread I seach for are right down the bottom or a page or sometimes over a few pages.
Or perhaps in each section say pneumatic and combustion there could be a topic thats stickied called getting started or something? And all it would be is a bunch of relevent links, it doesn't have to be left up to one person to do either, everyone should put in the links they found helpful when starting?

The Search button works perfectly for me, just fill in as many fields as possible. I've always found the topic I'm looking for within the first page of results.

I decided to go with a little piece of rubber glove just infront of the breech, thanks though for all the positive input :)

I'll be posting it soon

IF you are firing a marble what you should do and i have done on one of my guns was that you wrap it in paper not alot but enough to give it a relatively tight fit but enough to let it move with the force of the propellant.You might have to ram it down the barrel with a stick but if it gets stuck i cant be held responsible.

Sounds a bit dodgy hey! :?
I think you should just stick with the rubber :P

Well yes and no... I have done it, but its a pain to try to keep the marble or whatever your taping spherical. Its a lot faster now to just drop a marble in the breach instead of having to ram it down the barrel.

Its cool though. :lol: . It would be the easiest and quickest idea that anyone could do unless you you don't have paper in your house which would be ust plan scary.
