Re: CPH help please

No need for the extra security, anything+hose clamp will hold very securely.

Re: CPH help please

Hose clamp isn't flimsy at all, it's what holds the LRT onto the rest of the CPH.
There's what atvan suggested, I use a hose barb/endcap and put a hose clamp on that, as long as you find something that seals it well.

Re: CPH help please

Yup, you can find them in a variety of shapes and sizes at basically any hardware store. They just require a quick sealing of the hole at the other end. Again, I have no clue what kind of performance it'll yield, but believe me, only use balloons as a last resort.

Re: CPH help please

I've tried both, LRT is so much easier to work with. It is harder to get a hold of and balloons aren't too challenging, they just take a lot more time (and maintenance). Now, I've never used this stuff, but you can find it at any hardware store, it's a balloon that unclogs drains through water press...

Re: 2nd round - Comunity War Name vote

My problem with the name Downpour is that I just don't find it interesting enough, it doesn't capture my attention the same way as the others do. The "pocalypses" run the risk of being too flashy, but I'd still prefer either of them over Downpour (no offence to whoever suggested it, I do sound like ...

Re: Hands-On: Water Warriors Python @ iSoaker.com

Looks pretty good! What's the power on it like? Does water ease itself out of the nozzle or is there more of an explosive eagerness about it?

Also, atvan, a lot of the Water Warriors sidearms can hit 40', I expect this to be no exception.

XP 250 on its way. Will post things about it when I get it (probably nothing too detailed, I'll just shoot it into my bathtub and stuff).

Re: Latest happenings

I think I've figured out the pinch valve to pull or ball valve conversion I posted earlier. Now I just need parts that are the right size (ie tiny). I remember trying that on my SS 100, but that was in my noob days and I ended up destroying it... It should work well though, you know what you're doi...

Re: Latest happenings

It's easy to lose a sense of judgement when all you see is "CPS BACKFIRE $150 ONLY!!!!" I would pay $20 for those (the 105 mainly), it's the shipping that upsets me. What is it about the 105 that you like so much? I am very opinionated about that gun, so I'm curious as to what you think... Well, my...

$20+shipping for an XP250, I'm tempted to bid, but have no idea what I'd do with it other than be like "don't touch that, it's fragile!"

Re: Buzzbeetoys.com updates for Spring, 2012

I'm impressed! Looks like a very balanced lineup, and I love that they've made the riot blast standard (they still browse these forums, good to know). Of course, it would be nice to see a mega cannon, but this is a nice step forward. Now I really want a Python and Colossus. 40 feet on the viper? Dou...

Re: First Water Guns

An XP 110 almost 10 years ago, that thing is probably still a beast in my armoury.

What got me into water warfare though was a war I had like 12 years ago, using water bottles and squirt pistols, this led to a daily routine of shooting at people on the streets from my balcony :D.

Re: Tactical Scenario I

I've got a highly detailed and intricate plan: You ready? Run to the cliff, climb to the top, split up and guard the two entry points, get in position, hide behind cover, and shoot everything in sight. Done. Initially they'd be split 6 and 6, but those numbers could change depending on where the evi...

Re: Of Old Hit Tests - Test 01

I've played with squirt pistols in my backyard, so those numbers don't really surprise me. Really, i guess this means if you feel water, you've been hit.

Re: Why do people gotta hate :P

A big part of it is probably the marketing, most water guns are marketed to <10 year-olds nowadays, so for anyone older than that to be playing with them does give the typical bully a good bit of material to work with.

As with anything, be proud of who you are and enjoy your hobbies.
