Hey all, I’ve bean trying to figure out what to make next, so I decided to ask and see what y’all think I should do?

Should I:
One, make a pneumatic auto-cannon, I decided, due to my lake of experience with combustions and hybrids, that I’d shoot for a pneumatic cannon instead.

Two, up-grade my XM001 with a piston valve and maybe an auto-loading mechanism.

Three, make a .50cal copper airgun, been wanting one for a long time.

Four, fix my LAW/Bazooka.

Or something else, I’ll take any suggestions.

Okay, somebody with comments… that’s what I get for making this a poll.
I should’ve guessed that people would want to see an auto-cannon, it’s all about speed with y’all, no body cares about power, or typing apparently...

Sorry, I’m tired…

Make the water rocket panzerstrike thing you wanted for paintball. But instead of filling it with water, fill it with flour!

Looks a lot more realistic.

I voted something else. A tank, with a spud cannon torrent. They have been talked about a few times around here, but i've never seen a tank that rolls around and shoots spuds, and remember, you asked! Hehehe.

The water rocket Panzerfaust (I believe that’s how it’s spelled) is a given, it’ll be made out of scraps from my other cannons.

Jrrdw, a tank would be fun, problem is I only make $12-$32u.s. every other week during the summer. But if I ever get a motor, drive train, steering mechanism, and a frame I’ll buy the plywood and make one. Right now I’ll I’ve got is a very, very small barely-go-kart that the carburetor went out on… oh and that’s not really my barely-go-kart, it’s my neighbor’s that we, by “we” he mean me, were going to “fix” and sell and split the earnings…
But, yeah, I’m looking for a lawn tractor for next to nothing to use for a paintball tank…HEY are neighbor’s got one that they might be willing to part with, all it needs is: four new tires, a new gear shift, a new drive belt, a new air filter, new seat, transmission’s going bad, needs a new battery, I think that's all.

Oh and I checked that link, Insomniac, that looks cool, I’ll have to try that. flower, being lighter than water, should yield higher velocities.

Are you saying make an automatic water rocket launcher????
I’m mildly offended by you telling me to “make to awesome”, are you saying that my previous cannon are not awesome? I’m just kidding.
But I’m working on the auto-cannon, a brief description of it can be found in my “Automatic hybrid cannon” thread.
