Sometimes, although it does depend on how much work the building is being, unlike some people, I don't have the luck to own a compressor (yet), so shooting is quite a lot of work. Pumping a 40 cubic inch chamber up to 300+ psi more than a few times quickly becomes tiring.
But I have to say, my favourite part is design, just sitting and thinking my way around a problem.
For example, my next launcher, when it's finished, is going to be a melange (and that's not the "Spice" from Dune. If you thought it was, you may have a nerd point) of such things. Although the basic design is HEAL on steroids, there are going to be a load of other features.
An auto loader based on a mix between the Webley-Fosbery revolver and a jackhammer, a full auto system which has been inspired by JSR's tinkering (although I'm using it as a pilot valve, not a main valve), and an air stripper designed to create some very special effects....
As another example, my auto hybrid design was very enjoyable to work on.
