damn, they sell copper by the yard, not meters here. guess i cant make one. :(

anyway, nice gun. looks like a fun one, but would be way more fun with a QEV (quick exhaust valve).

what ever you do with it, it is very cool.

What I meant was, you were wearing a kind of tight shirt, and you looked like you were wearing lipstick. A lot of cameras make it look like you are wearing lipstick and I have no idea why. I must admit that it is a little immature to be insulting one's mom/dad. Your are a grown man are you not? And for god's sake, don't type in all caps.

Just to let you know, it doesn't work like that.
Two 60 bar rated chambers does not create a 120 bar rated cannon.
It creates a 60 bar rated chamber pair.

The "rating" of the cannon is not the sum of all the ratings added together - it's the rating of the lowest rated part, minus a bit.
