Which is why you should probably load, then fuel, if you have that setup.

True, but if you are dumb enough to have to install the igniter in the end cap to prevent yourself from pressing it while the launcher is fueled, I wouldn't be so sure that you would follow standard operating proceedures.

Or the obvious solution is that you put your trigger somewhere were it can't be pressed accidentally.

another important point!!
-when buying raw PVC for your cannon, make sure you get real polyvinyl chloride pipe. the stuff you need to watch out for is the celluloid core stuff. It is basically bonded foam. Great for water, but not great for high pressure combustion gasses. One of these things exploded in my face a few years back. It gets very brittle and fragments. you do not want it happening to you. believe me
spend the time to get the real stuff

With Pneumatic construction:

Measure twice cut once

Use more glue than you need.

I had a end cap blow off for lack of glue once before...

Common sense would dictate that these thing are fire arms and are classed as fire arms so the upmost care and gun ettiquate should be kept at all times!

when muzzle loading barrel sealing piston valves be careful not to pust your ammo to far down so that your ammo pushes teh piston open, launching your ammo and your ramrod at hundreds of feet per second back at you potentially hurting you or someone else.
Personal experience Well lets just say that there was a 3ft long length of 1/4" threaded rod/bolt embedded in my garage ceiling.

While they should be treated with the same respect, they are not classified as firearms.

frankrede no disrespect mate but if it can lauch or shoot a projectile using combustion of any chemical or reaction its classed as a fire arm in my books.
It aint just an Irish man running around waving his arm ablaze!

You have to be over 18 to play paintball at paint ball parks over here and now they want to change it so people over 16 can play!
I personly think if you joind up the Jnr Sporting Shooters with this paint ball thing you could have a realy interesting way of linking all Jnrs all over Australia.
