but didn't opt for one
You hurt my feelings!
On a more serious note...I remember signing in on spudtech back in the day, and people were all trying to get me to build stuff like they do.
I was asking questions about unregged CO2 and what materials I could use.They thought I was crazy. ( DR, a senior member there, did anyway)
The general opinion seemed to be, big gun, low pressure is all you need..
Things have changed quite a bit since then, but the mood remains the same.
I think we shouldn't try to stear noobs towards our way of doing things, in stead, we should focus more on helping them achieve THEIR goals.
Of course, we should give them usefull advice, based on our experience.
This will ensure we keep fresh minds coming to the hobby..
one more thing:
Don' t ever talk people out of pneumatics or I will bust your virtual lip..
Your objectives are all feasable.
A blowgun will have enough flow for a .177 barrel.Other options are hammer valves, QEV's, or modded solenoids.All of wich can be used in conjunction with a traditional trigger.A blowgun provides it's own.
You can learn about these valves in the spud wiki.
You will obviously need an onboard reservoir and pump and a suited barrel.
If it;s true pump action, I remember one being posted on this site a couple of months ago, but I forgot who made it.
So...back to Jack-I can find any post on the net-smirking revenge...
