Good job on using pressure rated pipe, but ABS doesn't bond to PVC worth a darn and that's a non-rated plug.

Although many people consider it overkill to use pressure-rated pipe and fittings for a combustion, the extra couple cents is well worth it if it:
1) lasts longer
3) doesn't fail and scare your parents into banning spud guns.
2) Doesn't land you in the ER
You might have trouble finding pressure-rated PVC fittings in 2", however. I'm not compleatly sure, but I don't think most lowes/home depots carry them that big. You'll be able to order them for a bit more on<a herf="www.mcmaster.com">mcmaster</a>.

In addition to this, you may have trouble getting an even fuel mix in the relitivly long, thin chamber. Installation of a chamber fan will help, but the best fix is probably to use a larger diameter chamber - something which you may not want to do, as it'll cost 5-10 times more.
Getting a smaller diameter pipe to use as a barrel may be an option.

Actually, you don't want to be glueing your ignitors into a hole in the gun. Instead, put wires on it and then attach those to two electrodes (screws) that go into the chamber with about a 1/4 in. gap between them.
