Ease up buddy, jack was merely highlighting the pop-culture reference of your cannon... nothing to be annoyed at. I like the cosmetics especially because this is your first cannon, but somehow I highly doubt that you can run the cannon at 450psi based on the fact that plastic sprinklers are only rated for around 150psi (give or take) and other full copper QEV cannons only go up to around 350psi.

The cannon is really nifty. However, please don't be cocky and sarcastic with other members, especially with people like Jack. Heck, I wouldn't have known the reference if he didn't point that out. Nonetheless, it is still a very nice cannon.

Except he chose to use the rollseyes smiley, which is a sign of disapproval and superiority.

Anyway, I've used it at 200PSI so far without any problems. I was just saying the pipe was rated for 450psi. I haven't found a pump to get it up past 200PSI yet. :)

Nice gun but most sprinklers are only rated up to 145psi,you should check your rating.

You can also edit your posts instead of tripple posting using this button: Image

Didn't PCGUY disqualify you from the contest, for your obvious attempt to boost your post count with 5 posts in a row in order to qualify for the contest?

I like the detail you put in your cannon as shown in the video, well done. The operating pressure of a spudgun is determined by the lowest rated part on your config. That means even if your pipe is rated for 450psi, it doesnt mean that your valve will take it. And come on man, your getting pissed off over a smiley?

Leave the guy alone and just comment his gun.

Very nice and pretty. As many other people mentioned dont pump it past 150, hell I wouldnt go past 100 to be safe. I dont think youd like having sprinkler shrapnel flying at yo fayce. Good luck man.
