heres my last one
i can probably get 400 yards outts it. uses a stun gun to ignite
wow, just wow.
I thought my old one that used hair spray was tits.
Ya I have 2 of them, one is about the same size as yours but its air powered. fill the tank with air, it has a pressure gauge on it, fill to about 90 psi and open a turn valve, we dented a steel barrel with it once, the other is about the same size but it uses hair spray and a grill igniter to light it.
Hows the propane working for ya? I don't know if I would be comfortable using propane.
That looks like too much fun
I've got one. Close to the same size, shorter barrel. I've got a BBQ ignighter mounted in a screw-on tailcap with a paper clip for an "ignition advancer". The thing rocks and can give me about 275-300 yards. Hell, it was my high school trig project back in '95. Think about taking one of those to school now... Yeah, right!
i built mine with a smaller barrel. get a bag of carrots from the store to shoot. cheaper than potatoes.
propane works good, tough to get the exact right amount but when you do it hits hard
i usually use limes since i get more per bad and they are cheaper. but if i really wanna fuck something up i use a D battery wrapped in duct tape. kicks about as hard as a shotgun and will go right through about 3 sheets of plywood
you can't say something like that and not post a video... so get to it! I want to see this.
Yeah I wanna see a vid of this shit too the D battery going thru plywood
Here is our third generation potato gun at work, with fully electronic ignition, powered off hair spray and spuds... watch the curtans when it is shot.
Also please lemme know the speeds.
Somebody find the guys who shoot bowling balls out of sewer pipe.
They use Pyrodex and send heavy balls hundreds of yards.
-edit- found it.
300kb, thanks for the vid
Wtf you guys couldn't take that shit outside? Looks tight I wanna build me one now.
we our land lord
That closet saw all three of the potato guns test fires, and the night we got drunk with throwing knives.
we shot a water balloon slingshot in my friends apartment; who knew a water balloon would put a hole in a wall
thanks for the vid...218kb/sec
End of the year at the fraternity we had a 300 yard water balloon launcher, half the time they would blow up on launch.
The farthest we could shoot was probably 100 yards; we quit after we broke the window out of an apartment
I'm glad I didn't delete this before reading it.
Ha ha ha. Funny-funny. Don't you assholes still have telephones up there in CT? Pick one up and use it every now and then.
It was a one night stand, he was just using you.
I built one with pvc pipe its about 2.5" diameter and 3-4 feet long. We used a pezio electric ignitor from a grill (available at any hardware store) to set off the charge. We found out that carberator cleaner works the best as fuel. It burns exceptionally well and doesn't leave a residue like hairspray and other things. Just don't use too much or it won't ignite due to lack of oxygen. We can easily get 100+yards on a standard spud. We never have officially measured it though. You can also use the pressurized butane refils for lighters, just take an old spraypain cap and put it on the butane bottle and viola!
