that is 10 seconds of my life wasted. I'm sorry to say that this is pathetic.

wow magnum, what's the point of posting if you don't have anything remotely nice to say. I take it your a post whore and just want post count but I could be wrong (most likely aren't).

Btw, very nice little project sprayandplay. I would suggest a larger barrel for better accuracy/performance. Also, what's your source of ignition? I think I see a piezo button in the back but I'm not sure lol.
Again, nice little plinker :wink:

Ignore him, he's being objectionable, and he seems to be looking to he hit with the Banstick of Doom - either that, or, judging by another thread, he's going to kill himself with nitroglycerine, so don't worry about him.

What you have here is worthy of a ghetto award - in other words you've made a cannon that, in my opinion, fits at least three of these rules:

1) Made without measuring anything
2) At least one kind of tape other than PTFE.
3) Minimum amount of money spent
4) Less than 50% rated components
5) Made while bored
6) A tool was used for a purpose other than what it was intended for in the construction
7) At least partly biodegradable.

You count for at least 1,3,4 and 5, and possibly 2 and 6 as well.

Congratulations. Your cannon is ghetto - it might not look good, it might not work well, but it shows you're dedicated enough that even lack of proper parts won't stop you building cannons.

I agree with Rag,

This thing is definitely worthy of a ghetto award, but I don't believe that it is crap. This is one of the more 'presentable' minis on the forum.
Good job!
Besides all spudding is, is to relieve boredom, it seems that this did it for you. So therefore, it gains the worthy title of mini spudgun.

whoops, my bad. Sorry sgort, no disrespect.

It's just the first time I saw it, ballad presented it, so I assumed it was his creation, but no matter.
