wow, thats is awesome. Shame the guy didn't build a stand for it, it would look so much better (not that it doesn't kick ass as is).
Wonder how much that cost? looked like sch80 steel pipe, and i know that 2 inch thick steel costs a pretty penny. Maybe he got lucky and found that stuff at a junkyard.

I think this is one of the few threads that actualy needs to be titled in all caps for full effect.
I dont think they would let him use it atthe local alley though.

Another common practice is to use old welding cylinders. As funny as it is, people usually use ones that will not pass hydro.

I was actually thinking just that BC Pneumatics. I have a 10lb and a 5lb CO2 cylinder that won't get used (I have 2 twenty-pounders). Maybe this is just the thing to do with them. Finding decent projectiles may be a problem though.

Wow... that is awesome. It makes one want to make some black powder guns that launch concrete-filled tin cans. I know, we don't discuss it here...

It looked like a sawed off used air tank,(co2, or nitrogen) ingenious idea, stuff is pressure rated to a gizzzzzillion psi. LOL more like 4000. Perfect for a cannon.
