Aerial Projectile Launchers

This is something I made for New Years. It will launch projectiles straight up. I threw it together out of random crap.

Here's the only picture:

Make sure you wear safety glasses when launching your "stuff" dude.
Happy New Year.

I forgot about that rule, Novacastrian. You know, the rule about that stuff...

Oh well, me, you, elitesniper, and Brooner115 are the only ones who saw it, thankfully. Post edited.

Looks pretty decent for something made out of stuff laying around. "Projectiles"... I can guess.

i think he means how can you have qev's lying around while us poor sods have to beg borrow and steal to even hold one, well um ok just me then oh well anyway the cannon is interesting, weird configuration though would have hoped for something more adjustable... any way beats the hell out of my pile of parts...

sorry to much champagne just hit new years and got more bandwidth, damn hardcap...

Why's that? Seeing as they edited their posts before I saw anything, it's fine. Also since this topic is primarily about a cannon, and secondary was about launching against the rules projectiles it's fine as he edited it out. I didn't see nuthin.

What can I do? Nothing for me to do brooner.

You need to realise brooner that your topic was primarily about shooting against the rules projectiles and had no secondary purpose worth keeping the topic for.

I tend to like this cannon because of what I can describe of it verbally.

"It is a quick-exhaust valve cannon, with a safety shut-off after the chamber, and have two Schrader fill valves, with a large pilot volume for prevention of accidental Q.E.V. triggering, with a three-way ball valve for firing and filling."

Really, it's just a pile of part I threw together trying to connect parts I had not real simple connectors for. For instance, note the female quick-disconnect on the tee connecting the barrel to the launcher. That was because I couldn't find a 1/4" plug. :P Also, the tee with the two Schraders was from a stairstepper pump I constructed some time ago. The three-way I will probably salvage for *something*.
