Unread postAuthor: fom » Sun Apr 08, 2007 9:15 pm

I don't know if its been done before but I would like to see everyones first gun ever built by them. Post 3 or so pics and a small description.

Heres my first.
A 3" by 1" chamber made of DWV pvc
A 2" by 2 1/2" barrel made of SCH 80 PVC
Electronic BBQ ignition (my friend thought you didn't have to wire it back to the ignitor, it took us a week to figure that out)
ABS end cap and ABS reducer
Glued together with only the cheapest epoxy and hot glue

That cannon will not blow, so long as he keeps the pressure below 50psi.

Would you like to be buried or cremated?

...Or cryopreserved, in hopes of a time when damage done to vital organs by ABS shrapnel can be repaired?
