I kinda know how you feel. My interest comes and goes..It seems that if I finily finish a project I lose interest,so I try to keep working on a gun for a while until I get it as perfect as I can. It seems that I will never get it perfect, Im always thinking up new and better ways to do stuff. Better materals,better valves higher pressures etc...If I did not have my canon project to think about I would go crazy. It seems that I always have to have a project to work on, When I have the funds. :salute:

haha that is just what i am doing, improving my hybrid, and may make it able to take higher mixes.

i am constantly thinking about my gun and how i would solve those problems (those is a secret) and when i get up with something i does not have the spark to get me going doing it because i don't think the shooting is worth is.

however i have decided that i will try somthing to get pulled back in it again

I know how you feel. I haven't been in the garage for months, but Winter is coming to an end and I will be getting a chrony soon, so maybe a small bore hybrid on the way.

Yeah, well now that i've built an arsenal of simple pneumatics that are guaranteed to work without fail, i'm kind of getting bored as shooting them gets old fast.

Now i'm looking more towards cannons that I can shoot socially with friends and stuff, ones that I don't need to lug a compressor around for.

that is also one idea, make a spray and pray to take to friends, hopefully they start making guns so i have some spuddies (nice word spudfarm x) and have some one that can care about my guns and don't just say: "i can't understand how you spent $2000 on that"

well maybe that's your problem... I am sure that firing even 1 shot with that beast has to take a lot of time... personally I preffer handheld launchers... my fridge compressor needs only 40 seconds and the gun is ready to smash stuff...

I've always wanted to build a marble MG but there is one simple problem - money - basically I need to spend like 100$ to buy all the parts, which isn't a lot of money given the fact that the gun would kick ass.... but unfortunatelly I am always low on cash becasue of: smoking, women and alcohol :D
or maybe I am just too lazy

killjoy - does you ever use your msn anymore? i would like to talk to you


Sorry, I got a new laptop and have been messing around with it (msn is on my other laptop which I haven't been on for a while). I'll try and log on tomorrow so we can talk.

Good luck on you stand though, I'm having a hard time building a stand for my hybrid too, its not as easy as you would think.
