yeah, the images are a bit small.

If you want, you can send me the original (big) images, and I will try to resize them down to make them look nice, and i'll post them in this thread if you would llike.

My email is rmich732@AOL.com

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

Yep, It's fixed now. The gun looks nice. I like the scope. How accurate is it?

YAY!!!!!!!!! We finally get decent pictures :D
Nice gun, I like it a lot. You should attach some plywood to either side of the stock, that would look cool. :D

Yeah, you should see mine, i should name it, " A plumers nightmare". Yours looks good, i have to say, the 2 toned sprinkler sets it off for me. The second thing is, how well does it work?

The scope is more for show, but it does work. Up real close with paintballs it's dead on dick but once you back up the paintballs vere in every direction. I haven't got to shoot darts using the scope yet. But in previous tests, the darts shot straight at low pressure. I shot it once at 80 PSI and the dart came out and was forced up, dissapearing into the woods. Once it dries up here and I figure out a target that does'nt bend my darts, I'll try to sight my scope in. Here's a question; What would be a good target for my .40 cal pneumatic blowgun.

Well I thought of that but let me tell you about my low pressure shots. First I shot at my shed using 30 PSI at 15 yrds. The dart pierced the plywood, almost went all the way through it. So I shot 30 PSI at 25 yrds at a tree and the dart got stuck and bent litterally like this ) .
