How is such a feat accomplished?
It seems simple enough to just sling it across my back, but I don't think that'd work very well, because I use a sling with my normal paintgun.
I'm thinking; Add a carabiner(sp?) to the back sling swivel, and attach that to my suspenders.
That way, I can just sling the launcher across my back without fear of having it tangle when I switch my guns.
Thoughts? Other ideas?

A small pack on your back. Mine I simply have mounted under the barrel of my gun. Another I am building has more power than most launchers, has duel valves (one on my remote), operates off my guns remote line, and can fit inside a vertical pod pouch on my vest (little bit longer than a pod when in compact position).

What are the dimensions of your launcher and what poweres it?

If I get the one I want, it'll be about two feet long, and work off of 12 grams. I'd -love- to get one that was small enough to fit in a pod slot, but I don't want one that works on constant air. Did you make your own?

I sling my LAW without much trouble (and it's HUGE :) )

I know, not a very good image but you get the gist - I beleive I'm digging for a mission card or Nerf?

I prefer to be able to set my primary down and chase down Helo's or Tanks. As a Demo for years; I've come to the conclusion that I have to hump a lot of gear no matter what I do. :laugh:

Which one are you planning on getting? I make my own, they usually run on constant air but I can make them run off 12 grams. I have seen a few sold online but the problem with those is: they only have a small 1/2" firing valve that resticts flow and power. I like to build mine with a minumum of a 3/4" valve, preferably a 1" for best performance. Also, most all launchers online have fixed barrels that are glued in place so you have to use some kind of rod to push the projectile down the barrel. I build mine with a removeable barrel, not a friction lock but a bolt action style lock so you simply twist and pull for easy reloading.

Oh wow. Yeah, here's a link to the one I wanted (Basically everything you just described, I kind of feel like an idiot xD)

I know it's VASTLY over-priced, but I'm not good with making things.
Do you have any pics of some launchers you've made?
If possible, it sounds like I'd be better off buying one from you.

At the very minimum, they are getting 75% profit.
