I don't doubt it.
People have be killed by .177 air rifles, if it hits the wrong place - This is a lot more powerful than that.

But don't tell my parents I told you that!

EDIT: While I'm here, I recently noticed that the HEAL video had surpassed 9000 views - not too bad, IMHO.

Hay Ragnarok, just to clear things up, half-automatic and semi-automatic are the same thing. :wink:

So, I take it I’m not the only one that wants select fire to include manual... good I thought I was crazy… I guess I was right! :D

Ah, I'd always thought Half-automatic was referring to something different... :oops:
Fair enough.

Part of the reason I want manual is that although blasting at things in rapid fire will be fun, there will no doubt be times when I'd welcome control over when the launcher actually has something loaded into it for safety reasons.

It's going to need some method of manually cycling it anyway, as it's a fixed revolver mag, and short of muzzle loading, the only way to get the round in place is to index the cylinder.

Right, I've taken some ideas on-board, and revised my plans as I see fit.

What I've ended up with looks rather like the lovechild of a 12 gauge, grenade launcher and hunting rifle, but there's nothing wrong with that... :twisted:
