when im was with my mate with this other guy, I were looking through some old pluming parts and stuff in the agriculture shed with my friend who actually knows how spudguns work......and i said to him..."this would make a nice combustion chamber" and the other guy in the shed said "your idiots, stop using big words" he had no idea what we were talking about.........and when im in class at the computers..i sometimes look at spudguns,piston valves etc......and people think im a psycho..lol.....they have no idea how they work.......and i had this ghetto combustion over at my friends house...and my other friend was there to (hes a bit thick :wink:).......and he saw the ghetto combustion shoot....and now he wants to go spend $200 on one when he doesn't even know how they work......

3500+ at my school. 9-12. Good thing it's my last year! :lol:

Maybe 2 or 3 (including me) have built a pneumatic though.

I know what you mean about awkward feelings at school. Most of my year think im some sort of crazy person who blows up things, makes spud guns, shoots real guns, picks locks and does martial arts.
But im still friends with everyone and funnily enough nobody every tries to give me crap, only my good friends when we joke around. So i do get people asking me how to make bombs and such but the people who are interested in the things i do don't really have any real ideas about them apart from you put deodorant into a pipe thingy and light it with the other thing and it shoots out something with a bang.

it's really classic. At school i told my friend about my cloud and he said that it was bollocks.He said he could make a gun using liquid deodorant incased in pvc like a real bullet.(he knows nothing about spudguns and bbmg's)

I showed him my cloud and he tried to fire his and it just lit on fire.


lol.

When I talk to some one about a spudgun and they go yeah my uncle/brother has one it's the best it's way huge and can shoot whole oranges like 500meters*cough Bullshit cough*.Then I mention something as simple as a C:B and they go whaaa.

Well there was this one time I was at a party,it was a 21st and all of the people there were University Students studing Physics etc.I found some of them talking about spudgun,just run of the mill combustions.But them being non mentaly chanlenged I started conversation on propane metering,chamber fans and explained it roughly to them.They embraced it rather quickly and had it figured out in no time at all.Then I explained the Hybrid type of cannon,some had trouble but they all got it.Then came pneumatics......This is were the trouble started...There was one person that understood the concept first time I explained it,and pretty much gave up trying after that on the others.Thats a postive time I have ahd wiht Spudgun talk.

Explaining a piston valve in simplest form...Some people I give up on trying,but some do learn quickly.Well I know for a fact there are a few spuguns in my school mainly because I helped them build gun or they heard about them and made one at work,but alass they still do not understand fuel injection,C:Bs mixing fans and they still think that more fuel is better and louder means more power in which cases,I don't try and argue a point as they are not of the smartest variety.

Ohh and there is like 1300 people in my school and I am about to get kicked out... :x

I know a couple of people (other than myself and Ragnarok) that have successfully built spray 'n' pray combustions, someone who's built a ball valve pneumatic, and a couple of other people.

But I know all the weirdos at my school (and the surrounding ones, and the people at the local LAN gaming events... you get the idea).

After reading this entire thread, I have come to the conclusion that us advanced spudgunners must be some of the most elite and intellectually astute individuals around.
