As a fellow inventor (Tannerite Binary Exploding Targets) I can fully appreciate the unique qualities of this new rifle.  It's an idea that is way over due. I plan on spending many years sitting by my window, shooting sage rats and digger squirrels with my PrimeGun.  Safe if handled properly, yet deadly, and that satisfying "bang" is just what I have been looking for.  It would be an honor to be a distributor of the Prime-Gun in the near future.

To whom it may concern:
 The Prime Gun is a new and unique option for the shooter. It offers the ballistic capabilities of small arms with out a the requirements of a firearm. We have had a void in this industry until now and
Chris has filled it with the "Prime Gun".
As a competitive shooter for over 12 years and using firearms for well over 35 years I see this will be a great training aid for all types of shooting sports from informal plinking to match shooting. All at the fraction of the cost of shooting a conventional firearm. I can hardly wait for the final product please keep me posted on your success.
 Respectfully submitted,

As a tree rat I understand how the "Prime Gun" works. When you are on the wrong side of it, it can ruin your fun.

Believe me get behind the "Prime Gun"

I began shooting a BB gun at age six and graduated to a compressed air pellet gun. The latter was powerful but Chris has developed the most innovative  method of projecting a pellet with the force that far exceeds a spring or compressed air gun.
