edit edit- or if you only want 5 shots, just get one of those small regulators off ebay for $10 or so and use the little 12 gram co2 cartrages that are like 25 cents at the hardware store, paintball shop, or sporting good stores, they are nomally used im bb guns, but would easly give you 5 shots and would only cost about $12.

that was in my last post incase you didnt see it.

sorry for double psting.

I said atleast 5 shots, I'll take as many as I can get. If I can get 10, 20, or 30 I'll take it.

I have a 12 oz co2 tank already, I'd use that.

you might get 10 shots out of a 12 gram, they are only like $3 for a pack of 5...

edit, you can get about 75 shots with a bb gun, so probably 10-15 with a tee-shirt gun.

no no no, you'll probably get 40 something shots (actually I really don't know how many) with one co2 tank and then you have to take it to a paintball store to get it refilled for 3-5 dollars. The co2 has to be regulated because pvc can only handle so much and co2 comes out of the bottle at 800 psi (1000 psi on a hot day).

I have an excellent idea. Make yourself a small one shot spud gun using a modded sprinkler valve. Once you do this, all the pieces just fall together and you'll realize how easy it is. You can probably build one for $30

well, then tell me how to make a chamber out of pvc then, but remember, I need this all explained out in baby talk, I have no knowledge of any of this.

I need explanation on making a chamber, how to install a valve in which I plug an air compressor into, where to get every single part, and so forth.

remember though, the chamber I make will be a portable one, I don't want to have this thing constantly plugged into the air compressor, I want to be able to fill this tank, see the PSI, and shoot off, once the chamber is empty, I want to just plug it right back into the air compressor and fill it up.

3" barrel.

look, I told you I don't know how to do any of this, why be a smartass to me then? I need to know how to install a PSI gauge too. And 5'? that's a bit much? or was that part of the sarcasm?

chamber- pipe and end cap. glue cap onto pipe. pipe+cap=chamber.

other end of pipe, glue coupler. glue bushing into coupler. attach 1'' nipple to bushing. attach nipple to valve.

back to the other side with the cap on it.

drill hole. heat up 1/4 brass nipple with torch. screw nipple into cap with pliers.

when cool, attach 1/4 ball valve to nipple. then screw quick release for compressor into ball valve.

make chamber out of 2 or 3'' pvc pipe.

make sure you use both primer and pvc glue, be carfull and take your time, no need to rush, it will look better and work better. dont take any short cuts.

if you have a co2 rgulator, your chamber only needs to be about a foot. if its compressed air, then it need to be more like 10 feet.

to install gauge, drill a hole and screw it in. might want to heat up the threads a little, then wait fot it to cool and then put some epoxy around it to make sure it dont leak.
