Unread postAuthor: Grandtheftyourwife » Mon Oct 06, 2008 11:06 pm

ok Im gathering up some of your guys input on your favorite types of cannons and why . I myself like Using a ball valve with compression in the tank for the simple reason its cleaner and in my opinion safer .Now i wont deny i have a combustion and pseumatic each in its own serves a good purpose in my opinion. Feel free to add any comments.

Combustion...because that's way God intended things... :wink:

I'm curious though, why do you perceive a ball valve pneumatic to be "cleaner" and safer? If anything, it isn't as safe as a properly built and fueled basic or advanced combustion. That means metered propane of course.

You'll find pneumatics tend to be favored in the EU and Canada and "down under" and combustions in the US. PVC or ABS usage in North America and copper or steel in the rest of the world. This is mostly due to materials availability in these locations. Local legality also plays into these proclivities.

A ball valve "pseumatic" as you called it is really far less safe than most things made here, because to fire it well, you have to totally wrench at the BV, thus destroying your aim entirely.

while pseumatics (kinda sounds like a contraction of 'pseudo' and 'pneumatic', fitting, ain't it?) are unsafe, a well made pneumatic can be very safe, as long as you stay under the burst pressure of the pipe, and combustions are also quite safe, though if you are using hairspray (heaven forbid) they will stop working soon, and your cleanout cap will soon become a projectile aimed at your shoulder (I got a nasty burnt hairspray stain on my sweatshirt from that happening...)

Do not look back, and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come;
Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.
