My, how things have changed...

Unread postAuthor: paaiyan » Tue Nov 08, 2011 3:16 pm

Greetings fellas. Been a while. I don't have the money for cannonry these days, but I figured I'd drop by and check up on you guys. Things are certainly different around here. Tons of hybrids now, and I remember the days when the big debate was chamber-to-barrel volume ratios. Does anyone actually still use taters as projectiles?

I'm thinking about picking up electronics as a hobby, so you never know; I may end up showing back up with a railgun someday. Or on the news maybe. So how in the heck are you guys?

I use them, downside is that I have to scrape the pieces of potato from the windows after shooting :roll:
I prefer something more solid :D

There are a lot of hybrid now, a fashion leaded by jack :D
Gun freak became a anti-hybrid, I´m not interested in hybrids either.
I´m concentrating in high performance bb gun now, not something like a bbmg :wink: BTW I´m also learning electronics in part time too, and building some coilguns :)

Alas, no. That requires more money than this lowly computer nerd has.

Doing well. I'm married now, don't know if that bit of information made it to this forum yet or not... Moved a couple hours away from what was home, still with my same company though. Doing IT work while the wife finishes up pharmacy school.

Being in an apartment and away from family, I really don't have a place to store big projects, so I couldn't really do cannons even if I had the money for it. I'm thinking about starting a small PC building business on the side to keep some sort of hobby.

Good to hear your doing well. :wink:

As long as you have a unique niche (maybe a free pancake hat for every customer with a pet rabbit). Other wise it's the same as the shop down the street, know what I mean.

A high performance BB gun and it wont be a hybrid, is that some form of oxymoron? We all know you could put your heart and soul in to getting the best performance from your design but someone like JSR or I could whip up a hybrid in a few hours that craps on your cannon's performance :D


Good to see you back, paaiyan. Glad you still remember Spudfiles exists :wink:

Oh I still remember you guys. Especially when I hit Theopia over and over and the only new posts are spammers. I just don't ever make it around because I don't feel like I have anything to add anymore.

Spudder still at heart,although it must have been a month or two since I have touched one.

Computer solenoid actuated fuel injection up your alley then paaiyan?



Now I'm going to see what useful info I can find in these 20,000 odd posts
