A burning hatred? :shock: Is it really that bad? :wink:

Anyway nice gun, but I bet its louder than all hell with that shorter barrel. So overall length is under 4 foot? Nice and compact.

Where did you get that valve, Ebay? Is it 2 inches and how much of the elusive moneys?

Details on the valve later... reason why later...

And the length is just under 5 feet. Loud=success in my book!

Sprinkler- $40
Fittings- $50
Pipe- $30 (needed to buy the 3" in 10' sections)
Experiencing the recoil before seeing plywood blown to chunks- priceless

Got the barrel at mcmaster. Go buy it from BCARMS. It's cheaper.

We can't buy from McMaster as they don't do international shipping, and shipping a barrel from the States is expensive enough. Just go to a plumbing merchant and ask.
