he's from AUS probably...
you can consider yourself lucky... spudguns are illegal in most countries and in many cases are treated as firearms by the law


yeah feel free to copy it if you want to... now I know I should have made it months ago.... some things are just so simple that describing them make them seem more complicated than they really are

If you are anywhere other than Britan or Australia, you are 100% within the law an A-OK.

Even then, you are probably fine if you are in Aus, but in Britan you need to keep an eye on the muzzle energy of anything you build.

If you upload to youtube, there is very little chance (read; very slim to none whatsoever) that the authorities will track you down at all. Simply avoid tagging your videos, do not mention your place of residence or real name (I try to make it a point to censor ALL names and locations that people say in my videos, even though I'm in Texas. Still a good idea for non-legal reasons) and you should be fine.

Wives (and girls in general) tend to be squeamish about (air)guns to begin with, and they get insanely paranoid when you make one.

And that's why I stay single. I got 99 problems, but a bitch aint one. 8)

I pains me to see how draconian the laws in other countries are, when airguns in the US go 'largely unregulated'. That particular line made me a little proud.

Then again, Europeans have a long history of killing eachother with anything they can get their hands on. Also a tradition of insane laws. I couldn't image having to go to a gun range just to plink with a Red Ryder. That is the territory of a back yard and a coke can.

lol you might not be aware of it but that's exactly what the rest of the world thinks about the US and A :D

@patto
no the idea is that the chamber would ensure the 3 way valve vents only, let say 50 ccm of air at whatever pressure the gun operates at. So it would vent the pilot side of the QEV when you press the button and that air could be used for extending an air cylinder... once the trigger is released the chamber would be vented to the atmosphere

but that's just an idea that no one tested... it's somewhat similar to what iknowmy3tables suggested in one of his threads today or yesterday
