I've been meaning to ask you... if you had another 17, what would you do to it?
Your 1008 is inspiration. What does it weigh?

I snap shoot with both eyes open, and my left eye is drawn to the turret.
If anyone can find me a cheaper, more compact or innocent looking case for these, I'll buy us each one. I'm off to the foam stash...
Hi Eric,Just read through your entire post - several times...!! Outstanding - really appreciate your work and what you've done - sweet!I love the P17s, and even bought one for each of my brothers and my son - "cleaned them up" and gave them as gifts - (I wanted them to see how awesome the P17 is) - They love them.... Even found a P3 on Craigslist for a great price and although yes, it's nice, the P17 is just as nice (after you've cleaned it up).Appreciate you sharing.Thank you,Rolando

I'm off to the foam stash...How innocent, and how cheap? The musical instrument case was $3.00 at a garage sale, plus some foam, polar fleece, and bedliner. The hollow book is from a craft store. I fixed it up a bit with fake leather and polar fleece.
Stable spin would depend on weight too... I saw the info while reading up on something else, but, like a moron... I didn't bookmark it.How is the "sweetie friendly" research coming?Well, it's the "sweetie friendly" project that drives the velocity question. I do not have a great grasp on pneumatics. If I compress a volume of air to one half its original volume without changing its temperature, has the pressure doubled?I still need to compile a POI / distance graph for Ol" Softy. Ol' Softy is the reduced velocity P 17. One of our friends was shooting Ol' Softy with its laser sight and the lady was really enjoying it and shooting well. She almost pinched part of her anatomy as she was closing the pistol, so I saw that it isn't "sweetie friendly" yet.BobH.
