Your decision. Personally I don't like carrying twenty pounds of propane on my back when I only need about .32 oz. (1000 shots.)

I need a C3. Anyone think it'll be a good backup for a semi?

Um, how are flames gonna come out of the barrel? Flames come out of my Remington 30.06 when I deer hunt, but that's muzzle flash.

Sorry but I'm just not thinking so...

for 200 bucks, it is one heck of a backup gun. what's your main gun?

and c-3's are propane powered, so there are (false) rumors about it being a flame thrower.

from what i understand, when propane is put into tanks for distributing, an identifier is mixed in with it. what do you do at the shop involving propane?

we do propane conversions to cars and trucks, we sell automotive propane and we also sell BBQ propane.We service propane tanks, sell propane tanks so on and so forth, we get our propane from ICG propane.

well there you go. im sure ICG puts the identifier in there due to regulations. as i understand it, basic, unprocessed propane is odorless.

ok, i emailed the PRES. of ICG propane, he said that the auto propane we buy has no identifier, but its still fairly stinky, he told me that the small propane tanks do have an identifier, so if it leaks it doesnt reach an explosive concentration, youll smell its way before it reaches that concentration...BUT like i said, unprocessed propane does have a smell, but please dont let this deter you from the C-3, i had that chance to use one yesturday, best pump action gun i have ever used.

That doesn't quite sound right. Propane by raw nature is odorless and colorless just like natural gas, the odor is added for the previously mentioned leak factor. So people can smell leaks and take care of the situation properly.

*Checked with google-fu. They add ethanethiol. As well as seeing that propane itself is nontoxic.

That's what I thought, but I figured if the original bottling company was contacted, then I wouldn't argue.

 

Also, animation and process updated with airflow mixture and added details.

Thanks Meph!

That smell can't be sulfur... I used to have to DIP friggin guniea pigs into sulfur to rid them of "ring-worms" I know that smell, and propane has a different smell, no way it's sulfur.

Don't feel like your the only one. I was shooting targets in 20F weather last winter and it just stopped shooting. I kept trying it thinking it just didn't work for that shot or something but it kept on not shooting. As I was heading inside to take it apart, I was shooting it. Then, BOOM, a big puff of flames shot out of the barrel and it kicked like my .308. Before you automatically say I'm lying and so is everyone else that says this, test it out a little more, you might be suprised. I know the people that make and test these guns are good, but everyone makes mistakes, no offense. This is the kind of thing someone could've gotten hurt from and as there are many people that have had this happen I find it hard to believe that they weren't recalled. I sent it back to Tippmann and they fixed it, but after a while it stopped shooting again and before it exploded again I sent it back to Tippmann a second time. I know they sent me a new one because I had a scratch on it and now it's gone. This gun works great. This one is awesome, shoots great, etc. It does stink though, but only when I shoot it several times and when I play, I don't notice.

Hm. If that's so, then possible problems could have been an internal leak. The gas built up and was ignited, or there could have been a constant leak that was ignited. Wouldn't want that now would we!
