Nice. But let's think BIG.

A shooter ~20% longer and taller is in the works, and that opens up many top design options. But I don't think that will be big enough for you.

Thanks, Iacopo! Given your fabrication skills, I can only imagine what a Simonelli top shooter might look like. But you'd be in for a lot more time, effort, and money than I had to put out.

Many of Cecil's tops have a Colombian style knob on the crown.
Cecil,  Get some 2x4s, and some long bungee cords. Let's see a top cannon not just a little 38 special!

That's true. At times I envy you a bit the versatility and ease of your Legos.

And I envy your beautifully finished art objects. Unfortunately, having it both ways is rarely if ever an option.
