Also any dart restrictions? I used the fbr w/bb + hot glue. Word on the boards is people are using felt tipped darts only at some wars. I gotta learn to make those.
By the way whats the deal with guns allowed. Are you still banning fast shooting micros?
More like you're to scared to face up to them...
Philly kids, or are we too scared to put down the brassed weapons?
On a more serious note, its going to be difficult to convince my parents to let me drive 2 hours on a weekend, since its not during my spring break. In the summer its much easier since being down the shore is closer to these parks.
There goes 99% of the philly guys guns...........
Yes, that means brassed 2k's and other super micro shooters are out of the question. Also, I list the Titan under my banned list for wars I run, Horseman rules or otherwise. The regulars are ok cause I know almost everyone is using PVC with Mega's. For the newer guys, general rule of thumb, if it's more powerful then Freds 1500, it's not going onto the field. Thats pretty much how I'll be judging it. Twins, leave that bitch cannon of your's at home and use an actual Nerf gun.
I am using a "real check valve"
If you make a pump in that way, you'll need to use two check valves. One check valve prevents air from going back out into the open air and the second keeps it pumped into your pressure chamber. I'm surprised a design like that pumps air at all. I'd suggest buying real check valves
I'd also slap a real barrel on this gun (cut off between the two check valves and add a coupler). You'll need a pretty long barrel to work correctly on a ball valve. That might mean you should make your air chamber bigger. If you intend on keeping the ball valve trigger, I'd try some way to grease it or otherwise make it open faster.
Good for a first homemade I suppose.
Its a fishtank one that fits perfectly inside of 1/2 pvc and makes an airtight seal. I don't need two.
I do have a barrel but i just removed it. It fits inside of the valve because the end of the valve acts as a coupler.
I tried the two valve system, but it suked so i just use one of the valves now.
I put a checkvalve in the pvc and use a sm1500 pump. It takes about 40 pumps to make it shoot real far. Should i make the air tank smaller so that it has more pressure?
The philly guys can't make it Our break ends jan 3, and school exams are right after break, so my parents won't be letting me go to this war. I did talk to many of the philly guys, and they all were intrested in the war, especially the "Mouth", but we probably wont be able to attend any wars until spring.
I'm pretty sure the Philly crew is not coming this war.
Its a large pump gun called the "Big Salvo" which shoots 4 arrows eather 1 at a time or all at once. It claims to shoot 45 feet on 10 pumps, which is true because i tried it. I havnt opened it up yet, but it seems to be modable. Ill try to get pics soon. If this gun is already known about you can close this topic.
(this might be confuesing because it is hard to explain)
OMC: I ask the guy about the bullets/guns
We got smoked the first round when we were teamed up on, but its all good cause we should have been more smart anyway, and not have gotten caught in between both other teams.
The pistol wars were really phat.
Dave was kinda bumbed that he couldnt use his titen, because he just made it. And talio, by the way the barrels are not pteg, they are airline tubing inside of pvc.
We don't mindthe nicknames, and by the way, we are still calling Tom, The Mouth. (he dosnt mind)
One last comment: Our ammo sucks, but I can't yell at anyone cause im the one who made it
I think our foam is to thick, because i have to twist it to get it into my barrels, and they get all squished, and when i fire it they explode when they come out of the barrel.
Gotta go to Home Depot, and find the type of FBR that Hersh and Talio use. I think its like frost king or something.
And thanks to the lglf for hosting the war.
To bad warlock couldnt make it, sorry i forgot the brass.
