I beg to differ! :P

Or maybe i'm just saying that because I never built anything bigger, aside from this

Make a marble gun they may not make the biggest holes though.

Also marbles are cheap.

Can you shoot golfballs through 2x4s? I don't think so! (unless you have a Mauler, which I don't) :P I'm leaning more in the direction of a marble rifle, mainly because my qev wouldn't do that good with a gb cannon. Don't get me wrong, I like golfball cannons, but I think I'll save that idea for my coaxial in the worx.

Considering I'm the one who MAKES the Mauler Valves, I can safely say yes, I do have one - or rather 5 and the parts for 5 more. And yes, I can shoot golf balls through 2x4s. :P

But anyway, my point is that I just think marbles are just too wimpy to bother with. I wanna see something big fly off!

Honestly though, it isn't up to us. It's up to Jack. Do what YOU want, man. It could very well be your favorite launcher for a year or more so think carefully.

...or just do what I would and make ALL of those! :P

Id Love to see a breach loaded marble rifle that actually looks like a real rifle.

I would make all of them, but I don't own a spud gun store! :P I could never afford to make all of them! But like I said, I'm building a bazooka style coaxial that'll shoot golfballs a lot harder than a QEV gun can. I'd give anything to be able to buy a Mauler. My ultimate goal is to build a golf ball cannon powered by one. That'll be the day...

I will eventually build a big piston valve, but for now, I don't have the tools/materials required to do so.
