I think it is pretty obvious that pneumatics are the way to go (just in case it needed to be said :) )

When I was into a bit of blacksmithing, I used pneumatics to "stoke" the pyro (fire) ;-) The flywheel blower or the home made bellows.

well i like pneumatics but i just can never think of a good cheap way to make a trigger to let the air out....(dont want to go to rona to get a valve).... i like the fact that pneumatics wont get the cops at your house cause there quieter but im also afraid of the air tank (a 2L bottle or w/e) blowing....then again a combustion has a chance to blow up completely and kill you....but w/e i like pneumatical

combustion FTW -Pyromaniac friendly -No pumps or compressors needed -Pneumatics have a harder to minimize concept (You can make mini spudguns, but mini pneumatics...?)

What's so hard about mini pneumatics? This is small, and I bet it could be made smaller.

A good trade - a 10p biro, a (non-medically) used syringe, a blob of glue and a few minutes of my time to entertain both my sons for a day.

How much is 10p? 10 pennies?
Kiteman X_D_3_M_110 years ago
Yes, ten pence (about 20 cents US?).
