Heheh, yeah I have a bad habit of disappearing from here for too long, but I'm always a PM or email away.

No worries about your order. I still got it set aside for ya.

i tried the piston with the rubber bumper off and it wouldnt fire. instead of messing with it more i just put it back on. i know i am sacrificing performance with the added weight, but i am okay with that right now. i will save it for a different day to attach the bumper to the back plug.

BAHAHA! That shot through the fridge gave me goose bumps! Are the wheels on the base free rolling? If you brake them up you might get more muzzle velocity.

Speaking of Velocity...its ironic that you would shoot a speed limit sign.
