loosing interest :(

Unread postAuthor: SpudFarm » Fri Aug 29, 2008 5:43 pm

well as the title says i am loosing interest for spudding :(

i think (THINK) that UPGBH10x will be my last gun before i quit it for a year or so.

i will still like to hang around on the forum writing stuff.

and do not worry about the results on the hybrid since i am planning on giving you a good bye present ;)

just wanted to tell it, and that i will be back for full when i have blown a hand off with some magic dust :D

so thanks for getting me addicted enough to just take a brake and not quit this great hobby for good. :)

Typically, guns that you can't actually hold and fire get boring fast. That might explain a little :)

Also, something tells me larda will drag you back into it somehow.

that is the thing, i don't like the shooting part so much, that is why i am going to over-build my hybrid to use some time since that is the fun part.

you will not miss me since the only thing that is the diffrence is that i won't make things and do research on the subject or on any way try to advance my designs.

You might lay it down for a while but it will always be in the back of your head. I've found that if you're inclined to be interested enough to learn and study to build your own, you've probably been bit for life.

You'll be back to building again...eventually...

I know how you feel spudfarm. There's been several times where I've gotten bored and lost interest for a short while, but then I get another idea for a cannon and I'm sucked back in.

Unfortunately I enjoy the actually building process more then the shooting like you said, so I end up spending a lot of money and very little time shooting.

I know you'll be back though, no addict can ever truly get rid of their addiction.

And I'm looking forward to your hybrid by the way.

I can understand your sentiments, however after having spent any length of time blowing holes in stuff using launchers you've made yourself, you'll be hard pressed to find a hobby that gives you the same rush.

The thing that turns alot of people away from spudding is the fact that they have no money. Only people with a good spud fund and/or unconditional interest carry on spudding without any interruptions.

I loose interest every other month or so.Then an idea pops into my head ( full-auto this time) and I get all hyped again.
Try something you've never built and it will all come back.

If you;re used to big, go small, or vice versa.

Build a pistol
Build a bbmg
Build a metered propane cannon
Build a repeater

Whatever.

I think what you are saying is this, ""still try to have fun and exceed the limits""
well, go on.
