around AUS $600 including addons and paint. But a lot of that was given to me by my parents, as they pay for a lot of my needs if its to do with school. And I have made quite a few for school. But I agree with rna-deulers that it is worth it. A lot of money, a lot of guns and a crap load of damage.

I've spent well over $1000 on spudding. I wouldn't doubt $2000. And that is probably nowhere near as much the amount many other Spudtech members have spent.

I haven't really spent that much despite building around 6 cannons and various other PVC projects such as water rocket launchers and water cannons , since PVC pipe is quite cheap here and so are the fittings. Plus I only use ball valves with my pneumatics since I cant seem to find any sprinkler valves.

However, ask me again in about 2 months and my total expenses will have doubled since I have another 3 projects planned.

Anyway, the point is that when your at the hardware store and you see something that makes you go "Ohhh, this gives me a great idea..." you ll always end up buying more than you need, it always happens to me.

At least now I know im not alone!

This one time I went in to buy 20 cable ties and ended up leaving with a half inch tee, a ball valve, and endcap and some half inch pipe. These became my first ghetto pneumatic which used a 2L bottle as a reservoir. As a matter of fact, it was that gun that made me want to take up backyard ballistics seriously.[/list]
