I am a plumber so copper makes sense. I will paint the three bare launchers when I get a spare minute.
I will also rebuild the twin QEV launcher as I now have a better idea of whats what and what can and should go where.

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.

Will someone please answer that dam phone! "I don't care who you are, thats funny!" (Larry the Cable Guy). What was causing the carnij and destruction? Thats a heavy block to knock over! Gulf ball? After you paint them, post update pictures so we can see them. Being that they are metal, you could paint them with Kandy colors or Metal Flake/Pearl colors.

I cast some lead up for ammo. About 2" long.
The first shot in the "I hate that phone" video was from the bigger coaxial. I only had that 1 22mm slug so I was not at all happy when I missed!
The second shot was with the twin QEVlauncher from about 10 yrds, and to be honest I was shocked at how well it smashed the phone up.

He is Jim now! I told him that LSD made him sound like a dick and that was why no one took him seriously. He changed his name and he is a whole new man LOL.

I dont know about beter. I think Jim did a great job on a really tight budget. I think I did a poor job with a lot more to spend.

It would look better if you put an elbow before the one way valve, making it look even more like a real stock.

The way you did the blowgun makes it look better than Jim's in IMO.

He still did a good job though.

Hey brian, you can lick my scrot you twat.

Yes CTs guns are better than mine, but its not like he and i are ven having any competition are we? so what was the need to randomly bring it up?

Also considering im 15 and have hardly any money while CT is the owner of a plumbing buissness, no disrespect to you CT but brian i alway thought you were ok and that you had made a good gun, but now i see how much of a [woman part] you are, and i could pull a better sawn off out my arse.

If your getting chased off a police dog, try not to run through a tunnel then onto a small see-saw then through a ring of fire. They are trained for that!

What a politely spoken gentleman!

LSD - calm down. It's only a forum.

I don't think that Brian said the stuff spitefully, I think he was making a jokey/sarcastic observation.

CT/UKSGC - I like the cannons. You've obviously invested some time.

Jim (you know who you are) dont be a wally.

Just as you get yourself a bit of respect round our way you wreck it all over here. If I was you I would offer Brian a bit of an apology and edit your post to a slightly less offensive version.

Joanna thanks for the comments I have spent hours thinking these things through and each one has taught me something. I can see things in all of them that I would change with hindsight and I will when I get around to it.
As I have your attention could I be cheeky and ask if there is any chance of you replying to the PM I sent you?
