a grand for a tennis ball launcher with semi auto functionality! buy a god damn real gun instead! in australia you could buy a real pistol for $700


You can build your own AK-47(semi-auto of course) for a little over $200, soon to be one of my next projects. $1000 can buy you a really nice "real gun". Hell, if you're going to buy something for that much, just buy one of these instead:

and you'll still have $500 left over...

Dragon finder, those typicaly sell for 2-4 thousand.
And the proper term is <i>percision</i> rifle, incidentaly.

Bboymatty, and everyone in generaly, stop refering to every gun that can fire quickly as a "semi-auto" - the tenis ball launcher is a f'ing BOLT ACTION, if a rapid-firing.

Yes it is a large pellet gun.A lethal one.I've read a review of a guy that went hunting with it.He shot a moose and it dropped dead after 20 steps..
It's pressurised by a special handpump or by scuba tank to 3000 psi.The lever is just for loading the pellet.

I think that having the pump lever at bottom is a lot better, if the lever on this one springs open, (if that's possible) you'll get hit in the face.

P.S. How the hell did you go from the Thunderpipe FX to crappy pneumatic versions of a .50 cal.

P.S.S. I love the way the .50 cal looks but, the SVD Sniper Rifle has an AK-47 kinda look to it.

Yup this thing is so far off topic it's not funny. Any way I contacted some people that have a thunder pipe and use it. They told me how they made the fire ball in the video, what was used for fuel, and a couple of other cool tricks I mite try next time I go to the demo range.

Sure. The people that made the video claimed they placed a propane tourch about 6 or 7inches above the muzzle when the fuel, kerosine, was expeled it ignited. The gentalman I spoke to said naptha works a lot better giving a larger and more orange fire ball it also makes a bigger smoke ring. They tried alcohol, gasoline, and diesel fuel. The alcohol was reported to be the worst it ignited but did not get enough "lift" and some burning alcohol came back to the ground.

If you go to this link you can get some ideas and if you e-mail them they will explain anything you ask.
