The new paint job looks great! The barrel supports give it a more meaty look, not to mention real, well, barrel support.... :wink:. I also like the blowgun pilot reconfiguration.

Your efforts here are noticable...great job. You have a show piece as well.

The design is weird, but somehow looks easy to hold and shoot

It is a weird design, but it's very easy and comfortable to shoot. I just grab it by the center air chamber and press it into my shoulder. The over under joints act like a stock. I have some pipe insulation that I put around the joints when I shoot to help pad it.

I'll try to get some videos.

Thanks for the nice comments.

Video. I took this with my cell phone, so the quality is poor. I'm shooting at 15 ft. (I'm in my living room so cut me some slack...lol) In one of the videos I look away because I got a call at the same momemt I was getting ready to fire. So I look away for a sec....lol.

Do my eyes deceive me or did you just shoot toward an interior sheetrock wall? Not very smart there Japan, in the very likely case you miss your target, you could quickly have a mailbox pigeon-hole into the next room over...not to mention doing damage or hurting someone on the other side.

I agree. Even though you were shooting soft ammo, it still hurts ALOT. getting hit with one of those balls in the face hurts. So be smart with your guns, nobody wants to get hurt :twisted:

Don't worry guys it's fine. That's an exterior wall and the outside is covered in stone. Besides these walls are like concrete. It's 40 year old drywall with about 8 layers of paint on it. That little squishy ball doesn't even dent the wall. I know because I missed once before. I appreciate your concerns. If this wasn't safe I wouldn't do it.

I live in an apartment complex so it's hard to test this outside. I shoot it inside to test it. I know that sounds like a dumb idea, but I take the necessary precautions to make it safe. Usually I don't crank the PSI that high either, I just wanted to show it off.

On a related note, take a look at what the box'o'truth has to say about interior walls and their resitance to kinetic energy ;)

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.
