with radiator hose clamps,drilled and screwed to the wood on the stand.there are a couple layers of duct tape in between,so the hose clamps dont wear and dig chunks out of the chambers when I move it.

I am not kicking up a dead topic, I posted this topic, so here it goes.

I store it in my barn, so not really. and, during the summer, I leave it outside, set up by the field next to my house, so I just walk out my door, and over to the side and I can shoot it. I put a tarp over it.

oooookay then. our barn is in need of a roof, and eventually siding, but still keeps things safe, dry, and out of the elements.

yes it is, but I modified it a little bit. oh, the swat gun is getting a camo paint job, an aluminum barrel, and a breech loader.

EDIT: I got the aluminum barrel. 2" diameter aluminum pipe, 20' of it for free. my grandpa gave it to me. he has lots more pipe, like 10' and 15' sections of 1 1/4", 2", 3",etc.

Hey man, that´s a fuckin´ great cannon! In my opinion it´s really a kind of heavy atillery. I don´t wanna have you as my enemy. If you Know what I mean.... in Germany this sentence is a compliment.

That is one big ass cannon, you sir, are a genius. What was the distance shot with 90psi? I saw the 600-700yards at only 30psi.

Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward.
Whoever cannot take care of themself without that law is both.
For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.
