    That's awesome! Is the whole family in on the build-off? That could make for some interesting competition ;)

    Great start!

    Wow lots of heavy weaponry for this build off! It's like an arms race.

    well our kids have to keep us in check :lol:
    just a suggestion(take it for what its worth which isnt much).....the shell casing might be better placed on the bottom of the middle tube(kind of like the old battery tubes)

    I'm rooting for you kid. BTW, tell the big brother we are proud that he is protecting our country. Yeah, and keep the safety equipment on. That's good sense. I'll be watching.
