Battery Hand Gun/cannon

Ok, so I'm planning to make this instructable, it shoots out batteries at incredible velocities. It's fairly dangerous. It involves the use of match powder. However, it has come to my concern that people might worry or even hate me for posting this instructable. So I'm going to ask users on this instuctable if yes or no, they want me to post it. Here's a picture of the damage it can make. The first picture shows the side where the battery first stuck into the 3/4 inch thick wood, the second shows the other side where the battery left. So, do you want me to post it?

hell yeah it would be a crime if you didnt if you don't send the plans to
maybe it should fire something alse, what with the green contest going on, that and I've already been shot with a battery and I suspect if they were propelled by an explosive force you can expect to have a lethal weapon on your hands, for the drywall anyway...

No!!!! This thing can actually seriously injure someone or maybe even kill them! It is also faily loud. I actually made something stronger than this, it was a homemade shotgun and a homemade handgun. But since it is illigal having a gun below the age of 17, I can't show it. However, this gun is somthing more like a cannon. It can still kill though. It dosen't use real bullets and gun powder but instead, it uses batteries as bullets and match powder as the gunpowder.
legaly, i don't think it matters, especialy now. you still have a firearm, even if you aren't using gunpowder or lead (or copper-jacketed lead...).
