There have been a few members of the fairer sex through before, but in general, it's usually a panicked mother who thinks that her son's about to kill himself - and you can't entirely blame them, there have been quite serious accidents with spudguns before.

There have also been odd mentions from our guy members of girlfriends getting involved, but Karen is the first case I can think of where any of them have registered and posted on the forums.

In general, although not without exception, our female members seldom last long, so not everyone notices when we've had one... and as I'm told, it can take a long time for people to notice even if you do have a long term one. :roll:

That's OK, neither am I much. He had a song named that.

Do you happen to have a pic of the thing painted. I was going to say if you had left the joints and valve natural colored, that would give you some cool contrast with the orange air chamber and barrel.

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

Glad to see some people using steel, I find it gets overlooked too quickly sometimes.

Now, do people realize it's a cannon before you tell them?
