Unread postAuthor: Weasel » Sun Sep 04, 2005 12:51 pm

What size barrel do i need for a tennis ball? i am not a super great mesurment guy and i figger i can save myself from myself and just ask.

It's called the search bar for a reason; it helps you to search for information like this.

alright cut the attitude with BLB. you should have used the search bar, but because you're new i cut you a break. your search bar could have told you the size of tennis balls, but apparently you were to busy being an arrogant ass to check it.

there may not be a 4x2.5" reducer, i dont know, but if you cant find one, combine 2 reducers, like 4x3 and 3x2.5

thanks drac

i did find the size of a tennis ball with the searchbar it told me about the forums and i asked on the fourms and found out.

and how was i suppose to feel? i ask a simple question that takes 1 sec to answer and i get harrased about the importance of search bars? couldent he have just noticed my question had been answered and gone on with his life? i guess not he had to try and make me look like a noob and take time out of his life to do somthing that dident help anyone. so naturaly i dident apreciate it and for that matter im not an arrogant ass thats why i tried to get help from people i thought had some common respect. i apologize for getting a little sarcastic its just my nature

thanks for the info guys

check mcmaster.com for the fittings your looking. they tend to carry off the wall stuff for potato guns. and the 4'' clear chamber is a sweet idea for night time spudding. I have one about 18'' long on my gun but that isnt the complete chamber size.
