I had a thought after seeing a video of some guys messing around with car airbags. I was thinking of putting and airbag in the base of a pvc pipe capped on the bottom with some type of paint mixture above the airbag. The top could also be capped with a spray pattern drilled around the pipe to cover a large area. The airbag itself might not even be necessary and dangerous to put inside a pvc pipe. All you would really need is the part that gives the large blast of air. What do you guys think?

I have been thinking about maybe toliet paper rolls or something as a sabot. I have nothing to do this weekend so I'm actually going to work on a mortar system. Operated by 1 maybe 2 people.

If you're having trouble choosing between which super expensive mega-awesome new paintball marker to choose from, are you really even having a problem to begin with?

Orginally posted by someone else:

I don't mind going out the same way.

it would take a massive cannon to fire multiple 3inch balloons at a time. I dont thinkthe balloons would survive the blast of air.

It takes a very good cannon to fire one 3 inch balloon

Was brainstorming. Saw a thread about putting a wire in the barrel of a marker to break a PB and the paint would be a flamethrower.
So it got me thinking. Dangerous I know. What about a marker firing special colored paint. The marker has a 10 rd stock feed tube (no wire) and the field sells a special color (i.e. red for flamethrowers field paint is white) If the PB breaks and sprays someone they are out. This would do several things:
1. End the whining that they were covered in paint. (Not that I cared, but an issue for fields to keep eveyone happy).
2. Fields make money selling the special paint at $2-5 per 10 rds. This also eliminates players from filling hoppers with it.
3. The markers must have a shroud to at least look like a flamethrower and to make it easy for refs to see and call people with spray out. Now refs will still need to id players, but no diff than with a grenade/ mortar/ etc. But honest players will see their mask covered in red and know they are eliminated.
open to suggestions.

They have some with plain water going 50-60 feet. Look at APH or CPS systems. Only problem is getting more distance requires either a bigger stream or more velocity. Both end up near a fire hose level which won't work when hitting people. Safety and all. But all very do-able ideas. Main thing to look at with pumps is leakage. Don't want to carry it all day and end up with half the paint on my back. I made a waterzooka and get 40 feet with a 4-5 sec shot time. cost under $8. Working on a refill system.
