Unread postAuthor: schmanman » Tue Feb 20, 2007 8:13 pm

tomorrow, me and dippydodo03 are going to build a snowman, and shoot it with *pauses, wondering how to phrase it*, umm, stuff.

It is warming up, the snow is melting into perfect packing snow, and we will shoot it at like ~20 feet, maby less. and videotape it.

there will be a surprise though. :wink: 8)

oh, I got the air horn mounted, but no pics until I repaint it, and present... the 3rd gen swat!

EDIT: we made a practice snow man today, it was pretty funny to watch it disintegrate into a pile of snow, and fall to the ground. tomorrow will be fun!

Aren't you not supposed to get PVC cold when you shoot? Whatever, you don't put it to hugely high pressures.
Or is it metal now? :twisted:

I was considering doing that when it snowed over here. But without the video.

It got dark too early though.

no, although I have all the required machinery and materials to make it with 10 feet of 8" chamber, a 6" manifold leading up to the valve (If you could call it that) and a piston valve in a 6" tee, with porting interchangeable between 2, 3, and 4 inch.

I wold use a 30' long barrel. I need to get around to doing that.

I can still use a 30' long barrel with the current gun, though.


and yes, that is what most people say, but I know several other people along with myself that shoot in the winter with no problems.

I mean, I will be taking it up between35-45 psi, tops.

Get some long shots in, it's much more damatic when you make a direct hit. At those pressures i get 70 yard shots easy with super balls.
