Thanks for that, I don't have to try it someday now, I'll add that fingers aren't bulletproof if you put them against a 3mm bb with ~20000PSI of 2000C gases.

I don't have pictures, though picture a small volcano without lava, barely hurt for the whole two weeks it took to heal.

Then the "professionals" cut it open and took out my metal detector pinger.

I agree completely. I think JSR identified the reason when he said :

Spudding is a fairly transient hobby for most people.


If someone is just passing through SF, I think they're likely to build something akin to a "Saturday Night Special" then move on rather than devote time, skill and patience to a well designed and constructed project.

Way back when, piston valves , hybrids, and semi/full-automatic guns were just being developed, which stirred intrest in building new projects. As of now, there's some innovation going on, but nothing as revolutionary as past spudgun inventions.


For a designer / builder with dedication, there's unlimited room to push the envelope and totally eclipse those early designs. JMO

That's punny. :D

Sorry for my lack of innovation. I've been slacking.

Well right now my pump is totally out of commission (no gauge and no connectible head), and since I don't own anything other than the very basic tools and use my neighbor's tools for most everything, my ability to do almost anything but shoot is dependent on getting a chance to go over to his house... :roll:

For me personally, the cold weather isn't much of an impediment, walking outside for about 5 minutes to set up a target and do a few shots in below-freezing conditions doesn't bother me.

Something about "toy cigarettes", I normally have to pop a couple of paracetamol before going to bed after a heavy night out, as a kind of "pre-emptive strike" to mitigate the hangover the next day.

Vaping instead of smoking made an incredible difference, I made sure to drink some water before nodding off but nothing else, and woke up perfectly lucid after some hardcore festive season boozing on both Friday and Saturday night :D

Also, spudder's bathtub :D

I believe that is a utility sink.

And while I pay homage to the guy's ingenuity, there should be two check valves in there.

:D

If you can't fix it, you don't own it.

JSR I find it funny how you seem to nudge the off-topic thread back towards spud-related stuff(especially those first few pages) and everywhere else it's the exact opposite :D
