Well that’s a relief.

I could see spending more on building a functional tri-pod than just buying a wal-mart special.

If you insist on building one PVC comes to mind.

Go to Walmart and buy the $40 telescope. Throw away the telescope and keep the tripod that comes with it.

Also..inject liquid CO2 into the hopper to freeze the paintballs. Then you can jack up the velocity on the gun, without breaking the balls in the barrel. But don't shoot your brother with it at close range, as he will demand that you pay for the xrays at the ER.

I felt compelled to check youtube for proof that a paintball minigun was possible.
