Nice!

Just one bit of advice, when firing something heavy don't grip the pilot too hard, the recoil might snap it off in your hand!

Funny you should mention that, the day ended in me holding the pilot in one hand, and the gun in the other... LOL

When launching a large Gatoraid with the breech planted on my hip, I forgot I had keys in my pocket. That left a mark.
