DX pretty much nailed it on the head though. Exception for me is that I probably won't be able to get one for more than $30 or $40, but such a design shouldn't even cost that much. As for the pump, I'd go with a semi-tracked pump to minimize lubrication needs. Obviously, there's got to be at least 2 rods inside the handle that goes through the holes in the pump rod, otherwise it's not going to balance nor hold up for crap. For PC size, I'd go with something 700mL or larger, which provides some leeway should one happen to be too trigger happy, and also allows for more soakage with those... "hydrowave" shots. (which are obviously only useful as hit-and-run attacks in soakfests)
Of course, iSoaker is hinting at something for 2009. My best guess is that BBT is finally going to put out higher powered blasters for 2009, though the CPSs faded into the background of the wishing pond "logo" might be worth pondering. As for his question to all of us... well... available combat-practical blasters have been a dream of everyone here for years.
I think isoaker put in a hint about the Vindicator back in September 2008 when he posted this. isoaker, that's never a Vindicator nozzle selector in the bottom left corner of the image, is it? If not, correct me, but if so, and I realized it, do I get a cookie? Anyway, if I'm right, that's really cool! That would mean BBT told you early and you subliminally inserted a snippet of the soon-to-be-best available stock soaker. Weird stuff.
