Here's a starter kit, isn't the best quality but it does have the basic tools you'd need. I don't know about the ball cutter attachment though. Might have to build that yourself.

Why don't ya try talking to the college and see if you can get a part time job with them in exchange for housing? If that doesn't work most places these days have pretty hefty financial aid. If all else fails ROTC. Those guys get it pretty good. College payed for and only 5 yrs due after. I do encou...

Howdy hudd, From my experience with the nerfs I'd shoot for around 80 psi chamber pressure. When you jack up the pressure the stresses on the nerf are pretty tough. At about 140 psi. you'll kill the nerf in 2-3 shots. 120 psi, you're sitting good but you'll see the nerf do some crazy things sometime...

Okay my thoughts of the GSMG: The GSMG looks like an AGD paintball marker. Which adds a bit of confusion when compared to traditional airguns .The style makes it difficult to take the gun seriously from first glance. I think for selling appeal the GSMG needs to look more like a real rifle (in todays...

You don't have to trim the fins, you can just fold them inside the barrel. That's true you can. But I've found if you trim the fins you drastically reduce the chances of blowing the fins off of the bulb.Those foam fins create a whole lot of friction on PVC.As a bonus (courtesy of physics) the reduc...

From what I remember nerfs are about 7" (6-15/16" actual from the ones I measured). 2" bulb, due to variation in foam density that size can be a best guess. I've had some that fall out of a 2" barrel and others that stay. It is a guarantee you will need to trim the fins. They stick out a good 1/8" o...

So it's time to invent a car that can drive on water, and most of all, is cheap Razz Wouldn't make a difference. Your water bill would just skyrocket because they wouldn't be able to tax petroleum. Taxes always go up. They rarely if ever go down. When they do, democracies vote in people who will ra...

Depends on what you want. If you like old guns (ie: WW2 guns) you might ought to check out getting a C&R license. This way you can buy guns online and have them shipped to you instead of the local shop. But for everyday sporting firearms go check out the local gun shop. Dick's, Wally World, and Spor...
