yeah i do actually have a couple of friends who really wanted to go head to head, to see who can take the most pain. Crank the psi up and see who says uncle first. Then i showed them the videos and they both back out. hahahaha.

Thank God they did.. :D
Not just because of the rules ..

It's an accident waiting to happen.

It would be better to make some sort of dummy looking like a zombie, filled with various stuff.
Macaroni for brains, spaghetti in it's belly, eggs for eyes..stuff like that.

Makes it look disgusting but still in a fun way.. :roll:

With an advice to never shoot at people or animals ofcourse...

The people behind taofledermaus have something of that philosophy, and it certainly seems pretty popular ;)

I do not know how i missed these guys, we have the same sort of idea, but i'm not saying this because i produce the show ;) but i think our show is better. They have some cool objects there shooting at though, we actually have an angry birds style show in the works i think it will blow the one they have away. But i have to give them credit they have a lot of subscribers and i don't know how they got that many. That is the hardest thing to get on youtube, to spread the word about a show and get people to see it.

I'm going to search right now but in case i can't find it what would i search under to find out how to build a portable air chamber, So i can get around 20 + shots at 140 psi? My wifes parents were in town and her dad loved shooting the cannon, He said he has an old truck that he used for parts that we can shoot up. He doesn't have a compressor and lives in the country.

thanks Guys and thanks JSR for the link,

If you have a couple hundred bucks to spend, and a paintball store or dive shop nearby that can fill an HPA tank I suggest the following:

Compared to the time and effort it would take you to create a similar setup which is as compact it's not that big an investment.

May have to talk the wife into an early anniversary give :wink:

at 4500 psi how many shots could i get, wow. I'm guessing more then i would need. And the female stabilizer would mount onto the tank and from there i could put my fitting onto the stablizer to connect to the cannon, correct?

You could get a gizmo that plugs into your cigarette lighter in the car to run your compressor if its a smaller compressor!! I do it all the time with my 4 gallon husky compressor!! I think they are called power converters!!

Assuming a 4inch dia 2 foot chamber, that's a volume of 300 cubic inches. Filling it to 140 psi, a 4500 psi 68 cu tank would give you somewhere in the region of 7 shots, it's not much because your chamber is rather large (I'm guessing from your videos)

And the female stabilizer would mount onto the tank and from there i could put my fitting onto the stablizer to connect to the cannon, correct?


pretty much.

I looked it up, looks promising i would still like to spend a little more and have a true portable. Thanks matty for the info.

Also this is too all, there is no topic that lets everyone post all there youtube pages is there?

An easy way for everyone to see other vids of things made and designed or "destroyed" ;)
