Actually it is the seven p's my friends. I got taught that saying at a young age by my father, it was something his Commanding Officer used to say to him and his fellow soldiers whilst he was serving in the Australian Army.

The worst i've done is smash the end of my pvc HP chamber with a flying piston. No cash lost though, out of all my guns i would have parted with about $40, i spend more hard earned buying bb's to make ammo :D

Almost every project something doesn't work, so I get mad, curse a few times (or for a few minutes), and then set the project aside and then go start another project.
Its nice now though because i Have all these unfinished projects which I take a little time and finish and have a working cannon. I can have that feeling of success with much less effort.

Still, so far this year I've spent over a grand on spudgun parts, and I'll spend probably another 600 or 700 dollars before the year is out. My parents think I have an addiction, though they wont say it, they just have my grand ad talk to me about the 12 step program for alcoholics and how that applies to "other" things in life. I hate when they beat around the bush.

I was drilling a hole in an end cap for a 25mm fitting with a spade drill bit, well for some reason I was pushing a bit too hard and it took out a huge chunk of the end cap, perfect fit for a 32mm fitting though, which I have none of. A 2" end cap runs me about $15NZD($12US) here so it was a loss for me.

Haha I doubt it, if they found out I drank, I'd be a killed and buried in the back yard, or fed to our dog, and my cannons wold be on ebay. So if you ever see FEAR on ebay you know I'm probably fertilizer.

I find that not rushing to complete a gun is important. I used to do that and my old guns looked really ghetto and were not too safe. Now I am patient enough to wait to get proper parts and not just epoxy every thing together. Thats works and is safe but does not look good.

Don't your parents let you drink? Most parents in NZ let their kids drink once they hit 13. :twisted:

Losing a fitting usually results in swearing and cut up knuckles(trying to get the fitting out even though you know you can't)

Yeah, recently I was gluing together a cloud, (which I haven't posted because of this) made of 3" pvc, and I got it all together only to find out that my blowgun wasn't directly below the barrel... And, because of the large size of the chamber, the stupid barrel only works if it is on the bottom... $30 down the drain.... The barrel got stepped on too, so now its only good for shooting plumes of flour. :lol: I was kinda pissed. Shortly after though, I made a ghetto one with a 2000rnd airsoft ammo container that worked better. (Go figure) I'll post that soon.

In my ignorant days I tried to make a marble gun with 3/4" pvc, a tee, an endcap, and pvc nipples. The idea was that the marble would roll down, creating seal, and then I would stick a butane can nozzle into a hole at the top which had a nail head below it in the handle. The butane part worked, but that was about it..... BYE BYE MONEY......

Well it depends here in the U.S. MrCrowley. You are allowed to by law, have a drink given to you by your parent/guardian at a bar, even if you are not an adult. But alot of kids here in the U.S. also just take booz from thier parents and drink whenever they want. And some parents just let them drink. Our society is somewhat diverse, which im sure you guys are the same over there :D

Sorry to be off topic. :oops:
