I don't think spudding is dead...i'm just starting and i have a few projects i will be doing.

My friends girl friend wants me to build her a small compact pistol to plink with, so i ordered a qev for hers and mine for i want to build one also.

I've just gotten into it and i'm in my 40's. I've fired real steel rifles and shotguns. My first airsoft rifle i spent many many hours tuning it, getting the hop perfect, no vibration, etc...but being able to build something from scratch and with my own hands is so much more appealing.

Seeing what members have built here gives endless inspiration..just a shame the pictures in some of their threads can't be seen, but thats a small thing.

For others they may not be in the right place at the right time to spend the time needed to build their own pneumatic.

But for me its just starting so its not dead by a long long way. :wink:

Definitely not dead.
I'm turning 18 in a few days and I've only been spudding since last year, so younger generations are definitely coming in.

For me, all this is beginning. I feel that I arrived a little late to the golden age of this great forum, and also infinite, but absolutely everything I have learned I have removed from here. This hobby science, is more alive than ever in these parts, and people are finding out what a potato thrower is.

The human fascination with projecting objects at distance is innate :D

Seriously, it almost defines us as a species :D

If you had presented your hybrid prototypes 10 years ago, members would have been crowding around you on their knees for a chance to touch your garments :roll: :D sadly with the insidious encroachment of social media I don't see that golden age coming back, unless of course we have a Syria style civil war and pneumatic artillery becomes fashionable again...
