A sentiment I will happily echo - for $70, that's some good work.

and about the "message too short thing". all you have to do is hold the space bar for a couple seconds after typing a short message and hit post...

But it's far more amusing to type some comment on the end like:

This sentence is just here to make the message long enough, so don't bother reading it.

That doesn't seem to work on all forums. Some will remove extra spaces - more than one in a row, and the rest get deleted.

Here, it seems the extra spaces just don't get shown.

I got it to work :D :D
Im very happy right now :D :D

OK its working consistantly now at 2x(didnt go higher because its early in the morning) Ill wait till the middle of the day for the vid as some loud noises are going to happen frequently in the making of it and would want to wake my neighbors up.

Edit: Uhhh
For some reason it just stopped working
Im doing it at the same pressure and everything it just wont work.
Im very discoraged right now but ill go try a few more times.

Edit again: yayyyy I got it working again
Vid is coming your way in a couple hours

Looks nice! Always good to build your first hybrid (assuming it doesn't kill you).

By the way, you spelled Lieutenant wrong. :D Our senior naval-science instructor is a lieutenant-commander who happens to be named Doug Johnson.

There will be multiple shots in the vid
and yes I will shoot a 2 by 4 once with a marble, once with a lead slug, and once with a buckshot. All will be at 5x, 6x is a little loud.
