T- Shirt Cannon

Unread postAuthor: turbohacker » Wed Apr 25, 2007 8:12 pm

I Built this gun for my school a cople of months ago to fire t shirts into the crowd at sporting events (hence the miners sticker on the side) I has a three foot by three inch chainber and a two and a half inch barrel. It uses a Co2 tank to constantly refill itself. I used a beer keg regulator to regulate the Co2 to 120 PSI. I also incorperated a key safety and pushbutton fireing system because the school thaught that it was cool and didnt care if it affected performance a little bit. It will shoot a rooled t shirt about 250 to 300 feet when at peak performance level. I used a one inch sprinkler valve because I had not experenced the wonderful world of pistons yet. -enjoy

I get about 10 to 12 shots, but the school pays for the Co2 and they have like five or six tanks

That thing rocks. It sounds like it is a lot of fun, don't feel bad sprinkler valves are what I would use too. QEV's cost alot but I heard they work better than the sprinkler valve. :)
