When I finally got my first combustion gun going, I took it out to an empty lot in our suburban, subdivision, nosy-neighbor, hell. I took it up on a dirt mound and aimed. CLICK, nothing. CLICK, nothing. CLICK, BOOOOOOOM![:0] The neighbors that thought I was just setting up there, messing with apples and PVC were suddenly terrified! Some guy came up and told me his kid was was out there playing(his kid was behind me in his yard) and that I should stop "launching apples so close" I thought about shooting one through his window or maybe up his a$$ just for being so stupid, but I didn't....should've though!

When I first built mine, my friends dad took it and filled it with propane. He said it sounded like a howitzer going off. But propane is hard to ignite and I think it would produce dangerous pressures if you didn't know exactly what you were doing.

DUMBASS... You thought about shooting it throught their window...:evil:

(now is the part where you come in and say "but no boogie, i wouldnt actually do it, It was just a way to express how angry I was."

And I come back and say, dont be a dumbass, talking about vandilism/shooting houses is not a good way to express how you felt.

Then you say "smartass bastard boogeiman[:(!]"

Sorry, I've had similar bad neighbors, and even a visit from the sherrif, but there is just no way I think it's ok to say that type of stuff.

Re: propane and pressures: Read a bit on the forum. MOST of the regulars in the combustion section use propane on a regular basis, and few have trouble igniting it. Pressures are no more than what you see with quality spray fuels. Check out the hybrid section if you want to see how safe a regular mix is, when used in a well-built gun.

My neighbors don't complain, my gun is so loud as to require muffs, and I haven't heard a single complaint.
