SpudGun Market

Unread postAuthor: ChunKy » Tue Aug 29, 2006 2:35 pm

Does anyone know why there seem to be only a small hand full of websites that sell Spud Guns, and their parts?
And why they all seem to be in the US?
And why doesn't someone make a website that sells bits, kits, and fully made guns?

Im not nagging, but there doesn't seem to be much of a market for these things...

My Ma and Pa have invested around £2000 to get my stuff running....So id like to know who would like another website that specialises in sales to the UK, but will also ship abroad for affordable prices....

Most SpudGuns sites are in the US because there are lots of people in the US that have\use\make spudguns and there are also lots of people in the US that make small buisnesses, so thoose two things go hand in hand...

They're are websites that sell bits and peices for guns... lots of them

Pimpman's store sells things

SpudShots store sells kits and peices, and whole guns
http://www.spudshot.com/page3.html

BCVids Store (BC pneumatics "pryo world" :D) sells guns and parts
http://www.bcvids.com/store/

And of course SpudGunTechnologyCenter (SGTC) sells guns and parts
http://www.spudtech.com

Yea, i've decided that i'll create the cannon that i made a design of, then see if anyone says, 'Hey, i wish i had one of those', then i'll make one for them, at a price of course. But i find that a much better idea than investing lots of money in the business that probably wouldn't pull its own weight. I'll use the money to invest in my Web Design Business instead. I'll let you guys know when its up and running.

Speaking of online spud gun stores...

Since I have finished most of everything that really matters, I'll now introduce to you all:

Gort's Online Spud Gun Store: <a href="http://www.launchpotatoes.com">LaunchPotatoes.com!</a>
1.5" porting and 2" porting pneumatic Barrel-Sealing valves and launchers with them in use are soon to come - that is when I get my paycheck in 2 days and go buy a good chuck for my lathe!

Please let me know if any of you would like to see anything added and I'd be more than happy to do so! (Providing it isn't a stupid idea. :P)

Pics Please. And nice one gort I bet you will have many coustomers if you keep up the good work. Consider selling your cannons in kit form. That way people can learn how to make them.

Nice looking website gort, although don't you think 20 bucks is a little steep for a BBQ igniter? That's 67% markup.

I have to make it worth my trip to mail it out don't I? I suppose maybe I could drop it a buck or two though.

Depends on how far the post office is. $18 is fine, only 50% markup (oh well, lazy customers who don't want to go out to a hardware store don't know that).
