Cool idea, but it's not really portable... lol

Blowguns don't work as good the way you have it, the 1/4" side should go into the sprinkler valve... I didn't even know Lawn Genies worked :D

Cool gun, using pop bottles isn't really because it's easy or cheap.... It's because it looks cool, nice cannon...

It's about $1.50 for a 20\24 oz of pop and it's only about $0.80 for 2 90's to make a chamber that's like this, and they have about the same volume...

yes that what i mean. cause my other cannon wasnt able to be taken apart. and i want to be able to take my cannons on the air plane.(oviously not as carry on). cause my other one got mailed back to my house cause theywouldnt let it on. i also like this design because i can switch barrels and chambers. @ blue tooth, i use my bike pump and yes it is all 1"

how long and wide is the metal cylinder thing that fills up with air each time you pump it on your pump because i think all pumps might be different.

Thnx for your help mine is exactly the same. For a 1" barrel you could use some type of sabot and shoot anything less than 1" or my favorite self sealing ammo a potato.
