I prefere pneumatics, cause they are more powerfull, more reliable. Not easier to make IF you want a good one. As already said, firing the thing is for free, you dent need to buy propellant. Just a pump of compressor.

i prefer the combustion gun over everything else the feeling you get when the cannon fires is the best :D but when you use the pneumatic it just doest sound right, sure it will probably go further but its just not the same without the boom!! :twisted:

My combustion when it's in use does not get a boom, more like a dominant puff. It is alot weaker than my pneus and less reliable. I am a pyro to but it I want to here BOOM or see flame I couls just simply light my yard on fire being that no one around here cares, hell I could prolly blast off 1/4 sticks and have neighbors come over to play.

Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward.
Whoever cannot take care of themself without that law is both.
For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

I forgot to mention the higher reliability of pneumatics as a factor.

Besides, my local materials will stretch to low bore pneumatics, but I cannot get material to create a sensibly sized combustion.

Besides, I suppose I prefer low bore and smallish launchers, which are much harder to acheive with combustions.

And I like the extra complexity of the pneumatic.
