    Looking at the Big Gun specs, I wonder why they didn't amp up the water supply, so they could get a 200-foot throw, and not worry about ever needing a sprinkler inside the arena.

    I remember someone telling me a rancher got one of the jumbo heads to cool off a feed lot, but the first mounting was too low to the ground, and supposedly, the high-pressure spray killed one of his steers.

    I'm not really buying it, mind you, but maybe there's someone out there dumb enough to not set a big gun above head height. I do remember one residential system done with Thompson rotors with such a high-pressure high-volume spray, that it was painful to touch the stream of water.
