We all have favorite blasters, whether we like to admit it or not. My personal favorite gun is my Cps 2000, because of it's mind-boggling power and range. I know it's not the best gun, it has many lackings, but it is my personal favorite. What are yours?

Even if I don't have it, just look at my name. Yay! Me and Alex have the same favourite gun!  Grin

Okay, now that I know there isn't wat going 90ft or something, thats great.  I had a homemade water gun a while back that would lob a small tank of water in a blast a good 40 feet.

There are a couple of guns which do have some real power.  The piston/air water cannon class of homemades are capable of sending "streams" of over 400x [small firehose is 135x, CPS 2000 is 28x] to ranges over 80ft.

Obviously, Nerf and soaking ranges are nowhere near each other.  It takes like 10 PSI to get a dart moving, but water takes considerably more force to move.

Don't forget about water balloon launchers.  Terminal velocity stops a dart at around 200ft, but nothing stops a water balloon fired from a pneumatic launcher.  Ranges there may exceed 800ft, and accurate range may exceed 300ft.

True, but compressed air tanks can be at any PSI, up to about 120 without danger.  And what does the x mean?  And with that kind of PSI, there is some serious water damage there.

For what I have, I favor my CPS 10k (15 balloons) and CPS 12k (25 balloons), but I also use my 2700 for other games.

As for favorite stock... It'd probably be the CPS 1500 except I've never tried one, so it remains at the CPS 1000.

Current favorite is my trusty CPS 1700.
Though I've been delving so much into homemade equipment recently that it may soon be replaced.

@WaterWolf: I'm looking for a Cps 1700 for my collection, as it's the only CPS gun that I haven't shot yet, excluding the 3200, which I'm getting this week. If you happen to decide to replace it as you mentioned in your post, I'd definitely be happy to buy it from you... :-D

Actually I'd probably hang onto it, or give it to somebody on my team who needs a solid rifle.
Thanks for the offer though.
