That is a fun rifle.

Mr. safety, I understand an appreciate your concerns. I always wear my ears and eyes when shooting my spud guns.

I cannot put a longer barrel on it because I am going for quietness (is that a word?) and compactness. This launcher will be my tree entry line setting and canopy movement gun.

Buy rifled PVC or use a combonation of the muzzle brake and compensator.

I caught up with your other posts.
When you were makeing the gun.
You really should consider a coaxial pnuematic.
Easy to build and you can attach the open bail fishing reel to it.
For the pressure a bicycle pump is cheap and very light as you really wont need much more than 50 psi.
Plus the sound will be about half and alot less jump.
