    Interesting experiment, but watching the BB's initially bounce off the drywall I have to wonder what kind of energy is really behind them when they leave the barrel. I can take a regular springer and easily punch through a layer or two of drywall - they never just bounce off. I'm wondering, with 4 essentially open barrels to the main chamber, you've got air pressure leaking out from the moment you start, rather than really building behind the BB's - up until they enter the barrel. I don't know, seems to me like a lot of wasted pressure, but then, I'm no engineer ;)
