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

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

That one dude in the how to site has some fat ass fingers.

What are the chances I get a finger blown off or burned and looking like a flaming hot cheeto? Never tried one before.

me and my friend made one.....but we didnt use hair spray cause he knew his mom would get pissed so we used carb cleaner and a little lighter fluid so when the potato shot it would be on fire when it landed
