Do you think they use DCVs and Fridge compressors as well?

Well, if there are air cylinders then there have to be DCVs for controlling them :wink:

Have you tried beer cans (if they fit ?) or energy drink cans?

EDIT
There are also some bragging rights when you own a pair
yeah especially if they are yellow and fluffy :D

beer cans would not fit, but energy drinks may. I'll look into this.

I wish i could run GGDT on the computer, but I can't, so I'll wait for field tests

I found a new ammo for this gun, and I don't think it hs ever been used in this small of a bore before :idea:

here you can see it in size comparison with a 2" coupling and a NERF mini vortex:

It actually fits inside my 2" bore cannon, its a little hard to push down, but its so fun to fire

This actually reminds me of the mortar I built a while ago, then deconstructed for parts. Mortars may have a terrible C:B ratio... but shoot at a 45 degree angle, and be amazed at your range. Actually, because of air resistance, a lower angle is probably best.

as far as distance wise saefroch, I can get about 150 yards at 80psi and a fairly low angle. How did I measure this? I have an 200 yard spool of fishing line that ran out on an 80psi shot with a NERF vortex.

Gun Freak, Its cool to watch, since I "take all the air out" of the ball to fit it in the second it exits the barrel it is nearly full size again

I actually shot my mortar all the way down my street. Probably about 150 yards, but I never bothered to check. If you get this one up to 150 psi you'll be amazed at how loud it is.

I took it to 160, not all that loud, more of a low pitched thump sound as expected from mortar. It shot a clementine way out of site, it was awesome

If you had a bigger chamber it would certainly be louder. How fast do you think it shoots a vortex and a clementine?

Yea, so thats a plus. I don't like loud cannons, if I wanted ear splitting I'd shoot a real gun. I have no idea on the velocity, and I can't GGDT it, but I suppose a local paintball place would let me check its velocity to see if it is field legal.

oh I see! its pretty funny that he expects at least a few tennis ball launches everytime I take the gun out :lol: . Its great because full sized tennis ball don't go very far at all, but they are more than far enough to give my dog a good run.
