Large, aestheticaly pleasing, and has several nice features.

...but I'd trigger the sprinklers (and fill the cannon) through a hose, standing several feet away from the rear of the cannon (at a 45* angle; not directly behind it).

...because that seems like the safest feasible position to be if one of your DWV fittings lets loose.

(gort: "well, I havn't been wearing my seatbelt either! I mean, nothing bad has happened yet, so it must be safe..."
And if someone posts without providing pictures... it's a violation of the forum rules, and is frustrating to people. What did you expect - "oh, we love the cannon you've mentioned"?)

I was lucky enough to have two demonstrations of this gun.
The first time we shot it for distance and was shooting 20oz plastic coke bottles filled with frozen water right at a quarter of a mile [1330ft]. We shot some baseballs but only found one it had travelled the same distance.
The second time we shot it resulted in the pistures of the plywood that Adam posted. A very impressve sight when pieces of plywood are flying up in the air. When the gun shoots the entire gun tilts up in the front about 7-8 feet and makes a very impressive concussion.
GREAT GUN

Gort, just for the record, did I say anything bad about it? If I did, it wasn't intentional. And how can you say <a href="http://forums.spudtech.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=14630"> my paintball gun</a> isn't pretty? :cry:

Though your paintball gun is pretty, I honestly have to say it does not compare to this launcher. And yes, you were the one exception to the "dickhead list".

Nice job. I like your chamber design thats pretty unique. I also like your ramrod sitting underneath. Damn, you make me feel ghetto for using a piece of crown molding that fell off my wall for a ramrod :lol: Very nice job.

Wow, I know I sound like everyone else, but that is one of the greatest I have ever seen. The paint job, the power, the wheels, even the ramrod.

How much time do you estimate you put into that thing?

All it needs now is spinners on the wheels...

Once again, VERY LOVERLY!
Does anyone actually even test DWV? He said he used this gun at 120 psi, If its dwv, Its gotta be safe.
