Make sure you put your helmet on before doing anything else.

Hm good job tech..
I will explain briefly...

Combustion cannons... use fuel or propelant such as propane or mapp... or can use hairspray or something w.e is flammable... they work by igniting w.e flammable fuel is in your chamber thus igniting the fuel and this creates pressure in the chamber...then this pressure is applied onto your projectile and it flies out...

Pneumatic cannons... use valves usually piston valves and compressed air... when the valve is opened all the compressed air exits the chamber and the pressure is applied on the projectile... the projectile is shot.. tada

Hybrid cannons.... use both fuel AND compressed air... first the fuel is injected into the chamber (preferably a metal chamber) then compressed air is put in the chamber... then the fuel is ignited creating pressure... the valves used in hybrid cannons are usually burst disc valves... a burst disc is just a simple disc made out of common material that has an specific break point...

ehh.. i kinda got sloppy at the end.. but go read the wiki

The guns work on pure imagination. None of us actually make guns, we make tiny clay models and show them off, jeez I thought you would have noticed by now, its not like this stuff is possible. it would be WAY to complicated.

Here: http://www.utrechtart.com/dsp_view_products.cfm?classID=2010&subclassID=201012&keycode=ADWORDS10&ne_ppc_id=826&ne_key_id=4427282&gclid=CPzSyOGixZsCFQRM5Qode1NgBg

That place has the best clay we all use.

The guy above you just wants us to seem cool its what we tell everyone, but you're different, I think you have what it takes to make some of the best damn models around,

PS: most of them are like an inch long so it takes alot of skill. if you make it longer than 2 inches you get laughed at.

Anxious eh???
I can see it now:
"what's pressure?"
"why is it called "combustion"?"
"can't I just throw something?"
"What is a "spud"?"
"Why are there brown spots in my shorts sometimes???"
"can I light myself on fire now?"
"I like sippy cups Yea!!!"

The basic fundamentals are the same for all cannons. That is to use pressurized gas to propel a projectile down range and place rounds on target.

So how do you respond when someone asks, "Do you have any paintball information on this site???"
"What's a paintball" ,"do you have a diagram of one?"
"I don't get it" ,"can't I just throw paint on something"

What paintball site is it?
(I hope to block it permanently).
