Look up breech loaders, you know where you slide the one thingy forward to load it from the back.

.i want to use a supara valve


isn't a supara a retarded toyota model ? wait , all toyotas are retarded. go Ford!!! yay musclecars .

now about getting more than on shot per charge,have your large chamber,a valve,then a smaller chamber with the supah on it .you charge up the large chamber,then open the valve between chambers,let the small chamber compress,then close the valve between the chambers then you activate the supah , it fires,it closes,you open the valve between the chambers,and do the whole process over again. :D

Ah youre going to be spending a lot of money. i would say start smaller so you can understand better how they work before you lay down $200 or more

If you want 2 shots just have 2 chambers with a baal valve between the chamber and the valve. Just open the ball valve to whichever chamber you want to fire off.
