Whoops. I don't know what I did, but I can assure you I accidently posted twice somehow, and it wasn't to get my posts up. What you should have done is edited that into your second post, further reducing useless posts. :;): I typically will use the terrain to my advantage. Hills, trees, buildings, ...

I wouldn't get them, rather save the page and then use their list of patents to get your own collection started. I actually have access to much higher quality patents and even pending patents due to the fact that my father works at the patent office. Maybe I should ask him about checking the pendin...

I have even considered making a backpack for the tanker on your team, loads of water and a few QFD spots. My portable QFD actually is rather pathetic (and so is SSP's), could have been so much more. The system is so simple, I don't think anyone should think they really are something special. I lite...

That's not my AIM name. Mine is Nexusmonkey. I've been considering making a homemade like that, but I haven't because it is dependant on an air compressor. That is like, in fact worse, than making it a SC gun. Once you run out of water your dead, simple as that. Unless you have a portable air compr...

Even on my homemades the max range is still doesn't need a scope. You can get 55-60 feet on a good first generation homemade, but you still would not need a scope on that. I've been happy using a PVC sight even on my longer range Nerf homemade. With practice you can get along fine without a scope o...

That's because CPS posted the pictures from his hard drive, not realizing that they aren't on the internet. Get an image host.

1) No, not all the time. It depends on the soaker. A 2700 will blow without warning, and a CPS 2100 will just get too hard to pump anymore. Soakers with the trigger valves that are unopenable I have found to be stronger and not need internal reinforcement. 2) I know how, it depends on the type of C...

Personally the most useful sight would be a scope, but I'm not that crazy. What I have tried that works really good for it's price is taking some 1/2" ID PVC about half a foot long and taping that onto your soaker. Make sure it's lined up good from the nozzle to your eye, that takes some work but i...

I measure 1x as 1 ounce of water per second. I believe that is 29 or 30 ml per second. It probably was just iSoaker's specific gun that underperformed a little bit. That and the fact that it's air pressure, output isn't constant and that may have thrown his calculation off.

While it does depend on game type and how long the battle is going to be, the most important stat through all of that is range. I have even made a little article on why I think that when I redesigned SSC. Something else to think about with that is it air pressure or CPS? Air pressure can not achiev...

Fine, I'll put the correct answers here now. I had to look... deeper.

1) SS 200
2) SC 500 if single piece, Big Trouble if not
3) Bob's, as it is on some of his other guns too
4) 1994 version (mk2)
5) Red, gray and yellow as on the Aqua-Nexus.

I agree, a sneak peek would be nice. Also, what's the plan on advertising? Will there be an online store where one could order the guns too? Will the guns be available in more locations? I have only seen a single small WW blaster in a CVS where I live this year. I learned that my area completely la...

I know you guys could do better than that.

1) XXP 275 legnth-wise, SS/XP 300 is one cm longer
2) Lightning/Pirhana because it's what Soakologist said
3) Bob's, as it is on some of his other guns too
4) 1994 version (mk2)
5) Red, gray and yellow as on the Aqua-Nexus.

What is the difference between the normal MR and the special edition MR?

The third photo I think is funny. At least both the shots were not clear on their faces.

Other than that you spelled it incorrectly, beige many think is a bland color. I would like to see guns that are primed with a single motion. That could be made similar to Nerf spring guns. It would be possible to make it so that water is drawn to the PC from the reservoir if the piston's end has a...
