Your neighbors should be checked for paranoia. :shock:
I remember the first time I shot a potato from my big gun. I was used to the recoil with wooden disks, but a potato is substantially heavier. I didn't expect it and it nearly knocked me over. My neighbor came out, no lie, and yelled "What the hell do you think you're doing boy?" :twisted:

my chamber is 4'' by 18'' and 3'' by 8'' and your talking loud. my ears ring for about 30 secs. after each shot. i use a 1.5'' by 48'' barrel. as for shooting it the first time i would expect the worst that could happen just to be on the safe side seeing as how it was built by someone you dont know. the first time i shoot my gun that i got pics of in the album it recoiled into my face cause i wasnt paying attention. my girlfriend was complaining about the bugs and boooooommmmmm right into my face.

i'd like to ask soimething: well, i've built some home made guns you know, like fireworks powder gun (really powerfull===> 1400fps with 15grams) and really noisy, i'd add it makes a lot of recoil, the first time i almost left it. and i also have a pneumatic airgun, in PVC. i does make some noise, but not a a medium cracker, and it does a bit of recoil, marbles go 400m + at 35° so i guess it's not bad, but the one i'm constructing is a golf ball barrel. the thing i wanted to know is: if a combustion gun, does that noise, why isn't it at least as powerful as a gun?

the noise has little to do with the power, something coming out of a larger barrel and a larger chamber is going to sound louder, your pneumatic will be more powerful than a combustion because of the pressure that builds up.
