he means in a competition. not against each other. oh, and If I had an 80 gallon air tank, I could use the hoper I made for apples and such. I can reload in thirty seconds with that stuff. oh, thanks, killa. I do like the "sawn off" but I'm more into the big stuff.

If your getting chased off a police dog, try not to run through a tunnel then onto a small see-saw then through a ring of fire. They are trained for that!

Hardly anything, only about £30 , but for valves etc about another £50.

Because my dad has tons and tons of copper pipe and fittings lying around the garage.

Hell, anyone want to come work for my company, all the copper and pvc you can eat. We're a restoration company that specialise in high rise condos down here in lovely Gulf Shores, AL. I'm one of two licensed plumbers and one of six concrete restorers the company has. Were looking for cheap labor.

And as a bonus, we have an entire fabrication shop...

Desperate to get workers over here.

You go big bore for a huge pile of force and small bore for accuracy.

Or... you go small bore because the police could see the illegal large bore sticking over the hedge and the ammo fired from it :P

The last one is a pretty good reason why huge pvc stuff isn't done in the uk :wink:


Club idea is daft, if you have an issue make a thread not a forum division.

I approve this. Maybe not a club, but possibly a new section to the forum.

Large cannons DO work differently than smaller ones. There are factors that just don't matter for small cannons that really do in big ones for both types of launchers. For example: Mixing and igniting is much more difficult in a large gun. Another example is how much porting affects large pistons or even how to build large pistons.

I'll see what I can do.

This might be a good section to discuss my plans for my Poodle Machine Gun.
