It feels like something else than the bladder is charging up in the main barrel when pulling the trigger before a burst comes out. A second bladder, maybe? About a year ago I had drawn up blue-prints for a design that utilized that, but had decided that it would be impractical. Sounds like Hasbro l...

I'm not sure where I first heard it, but the song "In the End" by "Linkin Park" often comes to mind. Which is sort of strange, because I don't usualy like that brand of music, but I like this one and it seems like it would fit so well in a water-warfare movie. Here is a Final Fantasy music video wi...

HERE HERE! Thats almost exactly how I felt when the Scorpion was released. But they've only been making one battery-operated-gun per year and the Tarantula's smaller than the Scorpion, so perhaps that indicates that it didn't sell very well last year. If it had, they would be stepping up that line ...

My team meets once a month for training.
During the winter its impossible to have Water-Fights, but I try to encourage people to building homemade and find good guns on ebay during our inactive period.

DETAIL! We crave stats!
How much range (Approximately) do the different nozzles get? How much shot-time does it have? Do the burst shots spread out like the Flash-Flood or stay together like a regular beam?

Well, I contacted Blue-Mage vie the email address I got from his profile. We emailed back and forth for a bit, then he dropped off contact.

If your helicopter is strong enough to carry ANY kind of payload that would actually be useful, then it would have to be a high-end RC-heli, which means that it would be rather expensive.
Do you really want to risk that much money?

Ugh, squirt pistols.
I had hopped that Storm might make a comeback with some stronger soakers, but unless these are their gimmick-guns for the year, it would appear that they are out of the running.

This is serious. The ideal defense would be a small group of larger dogs like we have. Working together they can defend you against practically anything, but you don't have the time to train up a dog squad like that, so I guess its out of the question. The first thing to do is alert animal control,...

I just saw the Secret Strike, the Arctic Blast and the Sneak Attack at Wal-Mart. The Sneak Attack had a fan and a beam nozzles for forwards firing, then it had two nozzles for firing to the left or the right depending on how the nozzle is rotated. The Secret Strike had a fan and a beam nozzle, as-w...

Actualy some piston soakers have a fake trigger, but no, this is a pressurized reservoir pistol and was actualy pretty easy to mod.
You can see its review in the isoaker.com armory.
