Nah all three of us were fine.

Very cool design, not every day you see a pneumatic ram on a spud gun, without the DWV it would look a whole lot better :P

he really should join he could learn so much. I really like his ambition to make such unique cannons. He's got to have decent creativity to make something that unique if he could just learn all the technical stuff and concepts that we have developed he could end up producing crazy stuff like jack.
this forum can give him a huge boost past all that trail and error to the point where he can become one of the best

Ill try to talk to him. Its been a long time since. His gun, to say the truth, was my second inspiration to get into the hobby of air cannons and pneumatics. Ill try to convince him via email to join. Your absolutely right, it looks like he does have some talent and creativity. But i dont know if he will ever become as good as jack, *smiles in a way that he is sucking up* :D

I actually became interested about air cannons and combustions from youtube, and then somehow, i dont remember, i ended up here 8)

well we currently the largest spudgun forum, and this does make a great theme for a forum because it often innovating, designing, improvising, and problem solving, heck I don't even know how other forums find enough conversation to keep thier site busy

Yeah, we do a BUNCH of problem solving and for the likmycrotch dude pneumatics are really fun sometimes just because they can get so complicated.

Howdy, i made this gun a while back and since have improved upon it greatly (after the recoil knocked me back, and i fell onto the gun, breaking off the trigger tubing) I'll post a pic of the new version of this gun, and yes i know dwv is bad but i was unaware of that until very recently, so spare me the lecture because i'm building the entire gun over again without any dwv fittings.

Good job idiot factory, your learining and getting better :D . yous should try to make a piston valve after this and create all the different types of pneumatic valves you can. Then go to combustions and experiment with that. I just want you to get the better of both worlds, as do i but i still need to finish with pneumatic. Then once you are done with both worlds, then you can create a hybrid which is awesome and powerful and a mix of pneumatic and combustion. Good luck and keep up with your ideas. We will only improve our design and create only something better :D

Nice video 8) Awesome gun :P Make a topic on your gun in the pneumatic showcase. Be sure to include pics and embed your vid into the topic. And include specs of your gun :wink:

I just watched the first video, and that thing is really impressive. For a first cannon, absolutely amazing. If you can build a 2 or 3" porting barrel sealing piston for that, it'll be even more efficient at knocking you on your ass when you fire it, not to mention more powerful.

How fast do you think that ram opens the valve? BTW, I'm dumbpeopleRlucky on Youtube, check out my burst disk cannon vids.
