who cares?

it's not about impressing people (although that's fun too), it's about shooting stuff, and having fun!

well, I dont really have much going on this summer, so I'm sure we can fit something in. :D

...we should do a northeast ipla meet here this summer, with people from Illinois, Ohio, michigan, and Indiana!

that would be awesome!


Well, I was in Lake View, but now I’m near Raleigh, North Carolina. I was up in Ohio visiting kinfolk.
I might, and I stress might, be able to go to one IF it was held mid August, that’s when we normally go up there.
But if at all possible I’d be there. By that time I’ll have my new LAW (Lord willing), so I won’t be there empty handed, but I might as well be compared to the S.W.A.T. gun!

Eh, I never cared all that much. :) I'm getting married in June, so it's sketchy.

it's actually WAHHHHHH, WAHHHHHHH, WAHHHHHHHH.... BAM! :lol:

well, here's a recoil video. it was taken around thanksgiving, before the reduced pilot volume and better piston, not to mention air horns.




here's the recoil at 25-30 psi with a concrete filled 20 oz gadorade bottle as ammunition.

(click it to watch the video)

Oh, here's two of my usual projectiles. the smaller one is a 8-10 inch long nipple of 1/2 inch steel pipe, with a 1/2 to 1 1/2 inch reducer on it. fits very well with a couple layers of duct tape on it. it works the other way, but you get more damage with the tape.

the other is 1/2 inch pipe, about 12 inches long, going to a 1/2 to 3/4 inch adapter with a 3/4 inch coupler, then another 2-3 inch nipple, then a 3/4 inch to 1 1/2 adapter.
I just had all the parts laying around, so I made them.

I have others too.

oh, I got the air horns from my grandpa. there off an old peterbilt semi truck, and at 150 psi, they are dangerously loud (I had hearing protection, I just had to try it!)

I have a set of train horns, but they use way too many cfm's, and would bust everyone's eardrums within a 5 mile radius. :wink:

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!

well, sometimes I put tape over the back or front, sometimes I dont.

even when I dont, it's scary-good at going through stuff.

Neapolitan is an ice cream flavour, Not an era. I think the word's you we're looking for was "napolean and civil war era" Or possibly "cookies and cream and banana split era"

Extremely sweet gun by the way!
