Damn that would look bad if quoted out of context :shock:

I used to work in a QA lab for the local manufacturers of the popular beverage, when people asked me what I do for a living I'd just grin and go "I test coke" :D

Soda cans are awesome ammo.
I love to shoot them after they are empty and watch thecans be crushed by force alone in the air.

I think sleeved 3 inch pvc fits pop cans good.... I just push a towel down my barrel, then drop in a pop can. I use both my 3" and 4" barrel for pop cans.

If only there were such thing as 2 3/4" pipe.
then all the troubles of mankind would be erraticated.

The beer cannon uses 3" pipe, and seems to have some kick.

Just thought I might add that.

*EDIT* sorry, before i said it didnt use a sabot, upon closer inspection, it does, so my mistake.

Dam, sleeving 3" sounds like a real pain in the ass!
You would have to have someone helping.

I believe FoxxLord (old spudtech member) tried a short section of sleeved 3" in 3" and it ended up being too tight.

Jack where are you from in europea anyway?

You could always sleeve 3" sch40 in 3" thin wall to stop it being too tight?

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!

A mate of mine gave me a ring and told me he just put the finnishing touches on his "pop can" launcher. He used 85mm pipe for the barrel and with a little bit of polystireen cup they fit perfect!! Hope this helps?
