lol. my dads pretty much ok with what i build. he actualy got me into it when he built a carbide cannon out of pvc just for fun. 8) latter when i built my cannon i would tell him every step i was doing just to see what he would say but all he said was "im hardly listening but im sure that your going to do it right" so i stop asking him about it adn when i was done and i shot a potato off our property he laughed hysterically and said nice job

My dad has done this to me before. It sucks. And being taken from the contest is a horrible punishment. I, luckily, managed to get back into spudguns without my dad being too upset. With that said,

A-98 -

I don't know you very well, but what i do know is that you're one hell of
Ground Crop Accelerating Deployment Facilitator Engineer.

I have decided to build a cannon in your honor.

Expect it to be finished in time for the contest.

nope, i wanted to get the valve before i started to build. i do have the regulator and its pretty kick ass, but now i need to find a place within 20 min of where i live so that i can get the tanks filled.

i round-about asked my dad today, and he didnt say anything specific about thing specific about my not being able to build it. i think he was just kinda pissed yesterday because we were making so much noise. least i hope so.

My Mom is really understanding about my need to build things. And she knows that I an safe with things. But I usually say if you hear a boom don't worry about it. And I explain everything to her and she is cool with it.

And try and bargain with your dad, like if you do chores or something you get a cretin part. Of if you do good at school. Like on tests if you get a C you get 1 part, B 2 parts, A 3 parts. Try and start off slow and then work your way up.

Good luck to you.

That sucks man. My dad does stuff like that to me sometimes except it has nothing to do with cannons. He doesn't care what I do with them unless im spending over $50 on a cannon, then he gets worried. Where I live its like this

Image

My house is on the right and thats me with my 10ft long coaxial cannon.
I almost hit that dudes house with a steel pipe that was plugged up. On the back of the house my dad added on a room that was solid glass ( he has a construction business ) Man if I would have hit that I would have been in SO much trouble.

EDIT:

Here is my coaxial cannon and in the background in the distance is the cliff the dudes house i almost hit is one. you cant see the house though cause i started shooting to the left of his house after i almost hit it.
