Re: The future of the water blaster, and 3D fabrication at home

:D :D :D :D :D Found a 3-D printer, so it looks like I will be able to build the lamination nozzle, as well as another project I mentioned to isoaker

Re: liquid Curiosity

good concept for water cannons.. I had wondered if there was a ballistic test or something to indicate whether a cannon was to powerful...

p.s. I said that I've done it to my own guns, so rule two didn't totally apply.

Re: liquid Curiosity

I do lend my blasters to anyone who needs a gun, but none of my guns have exploded from it yet. I wouldn't have them if they could do that...

Re: liquid Curiosity

Yes, that works, but if you take the guns, they'll just get replacements. If you sabotage them, they will still think the blasters are usable-until they try to fire them.

Re: The future of the water blaster, and 3D fabrication at home

I agree with the Drenchenator. homemades are not[in my experience] expensive- my ranger 20.7 was only like $20.00- $30.00, and that includes the external tank. As of 3d printing, if anyone has a 3d printer, can he print a water gun lamination nozzle? I'm still drilling holes in end caps...

Re: liquid Curiosity

Something I used to do was to sneak up on my opponents when they were refilling. they had this nasty habit of refilling a gun and then setting it down while refilling another gun. Well, whenever they would set it down, I would grab it and pop a few alka-seltzers in the tank. It [generally]disrupted ...

Re: my third homemade!

Actually, my previous post wasn't to make things interesting[ I don't consider this boring], it was because I was wondering about The Soaker's signature-thingy.

Re: Nerf Super Soaker Switch Shot shot pics and thoughts

I still like the variety of nozzles. do you know of any other gun currently being sold that has better range and similar nozzles?

Re: Nerf SS

dx: we already established that they are weaker. however, BBT doesn't look as cool, and most of the kids don't check the range on the guns. I know that even with the range difference I would prefer a Switchshot and hydropack to the Gorgon. but that's just personal preference.

Re: Nerf SS

Well, I would like to mention that all we have down here is Nerf SS, so how pathetic they are is [for me anyway] a moot point. but thanks for responding- now I know not to try anything with them other than general maintenance. :)

Re: Nerf Super Soakers- super or pathetic

'K, thanks guys. i don't have time to write much, so I'll revise the list later. :goofy:
Q: If everyone I play against is using SS, then doesn't that even up the playing field enough that the range really doesn't matter???

Nerf SS

I just started collecting waterguns again last year, and most of them are nerf SS. Are there any mods to increase their range?

I'd take you up on that bet if I had the ability to purchase online right now. And as of my mentality, worst thing you'll find is my recent obsession with waterguns... oh wait, I keep forgetting that around here that's normal- :lol:

Nerf Super Soakers- super or pathetic

I believe that basically everyone on the forum is aware of the Nerf Super Soaker line that came out last year. I also assume that most everyone is aware that water warriors is the only major competitor. So I think it's about time that we start listing the major pros and cons of both brands.
