I don't think that peice count should be a con for knex guns Answered

I have seen too many guns with a peice count as a con.  I think that the cons should only be cons that acually detract from the guns performance, not a thing that limits its buildability.  (new word!)

I also disagree,for the fact that some guns use way too many pieces for their construction which in this case I would consider to be a con.Price Value would also be a con in my opinion.An example of that would be IAC'S Heavy Cannon.That monster uses less than 3,000 pieces,and it also costs anywhere from $500-$600 for construction and as a coverage for the quantity of parts.

 I disagree because in other projects price is a con which is kind of like pieces for us.

You don't have to build every gun, and piec counts take a long time.

Uhh, you're partially right.

A gun's piece count is considered alongside its performance. If a gun that uses 3255236 pieces does the exact same thing as one with only 213 pieces, the piece count is overwhelming. When a gun of optimal performance can't possibly reduce the part usage, it becomes frugal.

I'm kinda talking in the sense that it does not detract from a gun's performance, not buildabiliy.

I disagree.  I hate how I'm in the middle of a huge project then I suddenly run out of parts and can't finish this crucial section.
