Umm... what's with this comment?

sugg22 (author)Mepain2007-10-25

i don't know what you're referring to in terms of the comment - as of last time I checked out your sniper's instructable (about 5 minutes ago) the hopper wasn't on there. if you want us all to know that it has hopper and is semi auto, just post the dang hopper! I really want ot see what it looks like.

Mepain (author)sugg222007-10-25

It is not semi auto, and neither is this.

sugg22 (author)Mepain2007-10-25

just curious, cause that names comes up when you mouse over the pictures.

Mepain (author)sugg222007-10-25

Do you now understand the concept of a semi-auto, side-loader, and a pump-action? If so, I shall now take my leave.

sugg22 (author)Mepain2007-10-25

side loader and pump action yes, but I'm still a little confused about semi-auto due to the two contradicting definitions on this site. i think from now on, i won't include semi-auto in my decriptions anymore. thanx!

Semi automatic is when a gun fires when you pull back the trigger without having to pull back the firing pin each time.

Mepain (author)2007-10-25

*Ahem* Actually, this isn't the first side loader on the site, my sniper is a side loader as well.

sugg22 (author)Mepain2007-10-25

not really - you insert the ammo into the side of your sniper, but it is a) a single shot (no hopper) b) manual load, and c) your sniper isn't a shotgun

HBF (author)sugg222007-10-25

I gotta agree with you there. He said side loader shotgun. not gun

Mepain (author)HBF2007-10-25

Re-read the post. "First side loader on site!"

sugg22 (author)Mepain2007-10-25

I dunno, Mepain. Your sniper is single shot, and you have to manually load it. It could have just as easily been a top or bottom loading gun. Due to sace issues, however, my gun can only be side loading. Plus, it is semi-auto, and your sniper is not.

Mepain (author)sugg222007-10-25

Did you read any of You's comment? Re-read it. You can try to prove me wrong, but fail in the process.

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-25

yeah, pie does taste good.

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-25

I like PUNCH!!

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-25

yeah, puppies are cute.

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-26

No, Pluto isn't a planet anymore.

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-26

I like cats. But I am allergic to them. Pomeranian's are cool. They look like foxes.

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-26

Good point, I should try that next time I go shopping for car parts.

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-26

You are a genious!!! And that theory of yours that my "rash" was actually a burn from boiling water, ingenious!!

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-26

Well, I'm not sure whether to do it or not... I mean, those cavemen sure are feisty. +P Not to mention their demonic radioactive lepricons...

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-26

I think you're right. I should dump my trash on my neighbor's lawn.

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-26

That's horrible! +( So when's the funeral?

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-26

Hmmm, good question, dunno when the next time I am gonna make mouse is......

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-27

Really? That's my favorite country too!

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-27

You're wrong! Frogs taste like chicken!

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-27

Yeah, I know. I'm also disappointed that Aquafina isn't real spring water...

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-27

What!!! You're joking, right? I had NO IDEA that was even possible!!! Chugging two liters of water in 4 seconds!

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-27

Believe me, it's not possible to travel to the moon on radioactive shiny donkey eating midgets.

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-27

Oh, I'll prove you wrong, I will! Look, right now! I am going to turn my wrist a full 360o!

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-27

That thunderstorm blew my transformer. I have no electricity.

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-27

yeah, cookies are good.

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-27

I HATE brick walls.

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-28

Hi, I am kinda stuck in my fridge, could you get me out, please? Well, now I know the light goes out!

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-28

Baby food is mushy.

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-28

Yeah, so is jello. Now that is really clear. At least in the original colours.

George bush is a republican.

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-28

Family Guy is really predictable, but they are trying to be random. But they fail at it.

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-28

It has been confirmed, the moon IS made of cheese.

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-28

Holy Crap! Really? I had no idea!! They really have found aliens, eh?

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-28

Dud. That is the WORST television show EVER!! How can you like it?

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-28

Holy Crap! How can you stand the flavour of star bucks! It is so gross!

Mepain (author)Whaleman2007-10-28

I'm hungry.

Whaleman (author)Mepain2007-10-28

Bob is a cool name

sugg22 (author)Mepain2007-10-25

I think your sniper is great, but if you read down on this page, you would have seen flaming idiot dude's definition for semi auto, which my gun is and yours is not. I'm not trying to say you're wrong - your sniper DOES load from the side. still, if it was semi auto like this, it would be much more time efficient.

Whaleman (author)sugg222007-10-25

if it is semi auto, how is it pump action?

sugg22 (author)Whaleman2007-10-25
the pump, in this case, is directly attached to the ramrod. unlike Mepain's sniper (and correct me if I'm wrong about this ) the pump on this gun pushes the ramrod back, letting the ammo be pushed into position automatically. also, while pie DOES taste good, what does that have to do with anything. *Tonite I will be building a realistic double barrel shotgun with an actual breech, where the bullets will actually come apart as in a real shotgun (hopefully ;))*
