Well, it is nothing innovative or special, just a very large gun, so I don't see the point of secrecy.

You do realise that you could have simply PMed me for the name of the supplier, right? You can figure it out yourself now. And keep in mind, designs do change.

ITWOST, the SCTBDC's concrete breach broke (rather predictably in hindsight), and I made another one wrapped in copious amounts of fiberglass. Hopefully that will solve tensile strength and shock load problems.

Because it's not exactly informative. We already have enough, and I usually reserve stickies for topics that help people out a lot.

See, this is my point exactly. Why deny information from others? If you're not going to tell anyone, why even mention you have a secret .. resource?

You want to know the reason for secrecy?

In this case, the reason is that I don't really know when I'll finish the project, or even if I can build it on the scale I want to. When I say [redacted], I could be referring to anything I don't want to release yet, probably because I don't want people breathing down my neck to finish it.

Now everyone who reads this thread knows my long term, high-budget project when I haven't even tested the small prototype yet (mostly because the stungun I ordered 3 weeks ago from BCarms still hasn't arrived).

And I'm not telling you the name of the supplier because telling the entire forum about my project was a stupid move when you could have PMed me.

DYI, do you honestly believe that I posted my findings in an attempt to get you to release the name of the supplier? You only see it as a stupid move because you (and only you) view it as detrimental to your well being.

If you didn't want anyone to know about your project, then you shouldn't have pointed out it's details by leaving explanations that anyone can read in your posts. Doing so is deliberately setting yourself up for failure.

And the bottom line is I was trying to find out why you felt this way DYI. And if you don't, then please, enlighten us.

It's been 3 weeks for mine too and i'm in NZ. He said he had sent it when I asked last week, but he didn't say when. Even then it's hard to make an approximate time of arrival with customs in the way.

I think we need a touch less hostility here. If DYI doesn't want to name the supplier, then it's his own choice. If he wants to post subtle hints in pale text, that's also his choice.

I don't give away all the information about all my projects, and I have no doubt almost every other serious spudder has a few secret plans, so why should he need to tell all?

ITWOSY, I took 3 more range shots with the SCTBDC. The disks, while made painstakingly accurately, failed at wildly varied pressures (from 270 - 350psig) I lost all of my "darts" in the lake 400 yards away, but I did recover 2 of the tails (4' of 1.5" ABS pipe).

The whole time we were there we were literally knee deep in mud and other assorted sludge, people were constantly walking directly across my line of fire, my camera died (permanently) when I fell on it while walking on the rocks to recover my darts, and the 70<sup>o</sup> hangtime shot I did somehow cleared the 1200 feet to the lake at only 270 psi. Which would be fine, if it weren't for the fact that this was a specialised dart that took 3 hours to make, which I was saving for a good target.

So I didn't have a great day yesterday, and I'm sorry for any hostility. I really don't care that my project got released, I was just a bit confused as to why SB15 did it.

Harsh, sounds like a large stroke of bad luck -- sorry to hear that all.

And sorry for any grief I may have given you about the disclosure of your "source."
