Can a net gun be made using CO2 cartridges or even blanks? Answered

The instructable for a net gun is a good one, and I was wondering if a more compact propulsion system would be practical for the home builder.  It seems that commercial net guns use CO2 or maybe blanks as they clearly do not require pumping up.

Yes, one should be able to do this with commercially available CO2 cartridges.  One could probably mod an old paintball gun (not an airsoft or BB gun) or maybe this Instructable, if you don't mind a bulk-fill CO2 rig.    I don't think I'd use PVC, though, since the reservoir pressure required if using 12-gram powerlets could cause a catastrophic failure.
