"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

how do you refill a fire extinguisher?
It's nice and simple (which i like :D) and has a lot of potential (from what i can see). I like it if i was you i would try and make some furniture for it and do it u p to make it look nice like a "sniper" rifle or something depending on how far you can shoot.

there used to be a quick realease valve where that hole is but it broke off due to careless moving company :cry: As for the speed at fist all it could do was go thru empty soda cans but after some modding i can go thru ply wood from a good distance.

Great looking gun you have. It sounds pretty impressive. You should make a breech load for it.

I think you do; because to fire it you push the lever down and to stop you just let go, so he can let go before all the air's out.

If you havent, wait till its empty, then drill a hole in it somewhere and steel exopy/weld a schrader valve in.

Well yes that would probably be the best option or he could wait till he's finished it take it apart and hand it back in to the company to get it refilled. :D

dont most fe's have a powdered mix to help smother the flames i know some are co2 but most of mine just have powder in them the extra space would be a waste it he had the company put that crap back in.
