Depends on if it's your mother or the thread.

If your mother has said nothing for six days, it is quite likely she is dead.
If a thread hasn't said anything for six days, there are still some remnants of life.

I am still searching for a safe lightweight projectile than can be launched a long way. (Experimenting with pool noodles.)

Holy crap that's a nice looking cannon, the chamber fill sounds like a pain though. That looks like it would work well with heavier projectiles.
How come I never saw that one in the showcase? :wink:

@Ragnarok, When I first read that I thought you were talking about someone's mother :D
But it's a true statement. :lol:

first of all I am going to say what was already said so that you trully understand what is possible and what not... :wink:

*forget about 12V compressors - they are S#### even for much smaller guns

*1/4 mile isn't possible with nerf ammo... a steel bolt could cover that distance but I understand that it's not an option...

*buy either a normal compressor or a scuba tank with regulator

Thanks for all the help I am deciding to make this a non firing prop. But one that will recoil and act as close as possible to the real thing. then we will just continue to use our flashpots for the effect downrange.

Why do you need it to shoot 1/4 mile?

yeah there is no way you will be able to hit withen 20-50ft of the person at that distance.
We use combustion cannons as mortars and ive gotten hit by them. THe point of mortars in airsoft/paintball is not to hit the enemy, but to force the enemy into cover while your men take their positions.
