Oh no! Temperature!

Unread postAuthor: Dom » Sat Sep 30, 2006 2:32 pm

Hey! I havent been on the forums for a while.. School :(

But anyways... Yesterday, the temperature here dropped at -5. And unfortunatly, my potato gun was in the garage (not isolated) so I wonder if it will still be safe to use next spring.

it is safe to use your cannon in the spring, it dosent matter if the pvc is exposed to cold temperatures, just dont fire it when its cold out and youll be fine :wink:

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

As long as there is no water in it, PVC and ABS can be buried and frozen into the ground, and still be fine come spring. I am sure it will be fine, just do not shoot it when it's cold like mentioned before.

It's fine under ground because it's below the frost line, in my area, 3' deep is the frost line.

Where my grandparents live it gets -55 degrees every now and then and in the summer it gets around the high 90's. You will be fine because i left mine in my shed on the coodest day of the year in texas ( 28 degrees last year ) and it works great still.

I left my gun out one day accidentally throughout the night -65 Celsius (-85 Fahrenheit). Ya that gun was toasted dropped it from like 4' and it shattered.

It had to be one of the coldest days Ive seen in a long time.
