Starting from the top of this page:
I just fired off my Warpstream rocket. I figured I would just pump it a little bit, not very hard, just until there was a little resistance. I didn't even know if I was doing it right. Anyways, I finished pumping, pointed it upwards, and pulled the trigger in my backyard, and POOMP!! It flies a good 80 feet into the air, and lands on the roof of my house. 0.o
Whoops! XD I will have to crawl out my window and onto the roof to get it... tomorrow.
I went back for the Power Pulse and instead found a Power Soaker Water Cannon. It looked alright, but I didn't have much interest. I searched high and low until I found the Power Pulse, hidden in a completely different place than I had left (hid) it the day before. It's actually kind of fun to shoot. Course, if you are older than 10, you would have to strap the reservoir to your arm instead of your back!
Next up, we have some fun things!
Finally finished my Super Charger numbered collection! And it's pretty awesome!
It's strange how I actually ended up with one of each. I bought the SC500 (not working) off CGL for 5$ last year, the SC400 out of... boredom? for 2$ at VV a few months back, and then I take about a month to pick up the SC600 off of CGL for 10$. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the result. They match! XD
Speaking of matching, I went on a Value Pillaging quest to an uncharted Value Village about two hours from where I live. I scoured the massive place until I find the stairs to the basement, where I find a secret trove of toys and such. And to my dismay, I find nothing water-gun related. Oh well.
But it doesn't end there. Onwards to another seldom visited VV, which yields something neat. See if you can spot the differences!
A blue Tiger Shark! I love these guns, it's like having 2/3 of a CPS 1000 with 3X the nozzles. This particular one has no strap (does it actually come with a strap?) and a sluggish trigger. So it has a good one second "runaway shot" after you release the trigger before it stops firing. Oh well, I will be working on this anyways. As you can see, there are some improvements to be made to even a fine stock Tiger Shark.
The next thing I found was like Deja Vu- all over again. Can you spot the differences?
Old, new. Grey-blue, blue-yellow. Strap, no strap. Seem familiar? Well, this old Orca is missing the reservoir cap, and it also has a slightly slow/sticky trigger. But hey, the cap is on top, so (less) whale noises, and more power! The nozzles on the Orca are disorderly, but larger than the ones on my drilled Gorgon.
Well, that was fun. I spent a good 2 hours re-organizing my water guns. Soon, I will be finishing up some mods/repairs on the Tiger Shark (and orca?) and that pump-less CPS 1000 from a few weeks back.
Question: I have 3 Flash Floods, none of which work properly (think it's mostly the small trigger valve). Should I fix them all or just use them for parts?
