Not bad for a first. With your next gun you should upgrade to a modded sprinkler valve. Don't ask, go to the top of the page and look for the button 'Wiki' click on it and browse it for a few hours and you'll find stuff on modded sprinkler valves their. Or use the search tool and search the forum.

P.S Its PVC not PBC :P

Ermm... I agree. Although some forum members partake in a little hunting with their cannons (I'll own up to having shot at "rampaging" squirrels), it's not permissible to talk about it on the forums.

And do you have to finish every post with "LOL"?

Great looking 1st cannon.....I'm against killing animals but I hope you got enough power to kill the crows painlessly... I've only ever had to kill one thing. I was a huge Cane Toad that kept going towards to my dogs. I tried over and over again to throw it over the fence but it kept coming back... I love my dogs to bits and didn't wanna risk their death so I had to shoot this damn Toad... Luckerly it's death was instant but I still felt misserable afterwards :(
