    Once, when I lived in a dorm, we heard this really loud crashing sound coming from our community bathroom. When we went in to investigate what had happened, we found bits of glass and potato all over the place. Somebody had shot a potato cannon from the ground, up into the third floor bathroom, through the window.

    me and a friend are wanting to start working on oen tat operates on compressed gas instead of gas expansion...that would translate into a different set of laws regarding weapons....the penalties would be alot less.

    its not considered a firarm so that in itself is a good deal. the one in my picture has a small tank of propane connected to it so its a bit more powerful. shoots about 200 yards. as far as otherways to make them. wd40 or hairspray is a good alternative if you dont have the loot for the propane tank. compressed air is also a nice method.
    heres a link to making the hairspray kind, only a few small adjustments to change it into a propane tank one. http://users.intrepid.net/~zidmar/potato.html

    this here shit is for true thugs

    oh, and instead of hairspray, we use some spray mist for fingernails.. cos hairspray is sticky and clogs shit up.

    Damn that last pic would make a killer potato gun. Probably even reach Afghanistan. You would need to get ahold of Hank Hill for some Propane and propane accessories

    i made a couple zip guns in my day. i had a potato gun when i was nine..the epoxy didnt keep it together after about 30 uses..a fairly large flame burst out the back and busted it.
