So... How exactly does this work? I've got it all set up except for the elastics, but I just don't see how this could soot anything effectively. Could someone who has this working send me some pics of the bullet they used and how the elastics are setup and everything?

Sorry about the late comment but, you pull back the rubberbands, hook them on the rachet and load from the hole in the front of the cannon and then shoot what you want to shoot.

Pistol: Small gun that fits in your hand and does not extend farther than 1 foot from your fingers. (estimate) Cannon:Big, extends far from your hand Opposites I would say

hmm... also a "pistol cannon" seems a bit odd dont you say. and he says it does not have a stock, this does not make it a pistol. a pistol is generally a one handed firearm, a cannon is not, and take the barricade shotgun used by the police, no stock? definetally not a pistol.

Ithaca37 (author)grevious2009-01-09

look at the picture above that gun has a caliber of 101.

author
grevious (author)Ithaca372009-01-09

thats just and over-sized novelty weapon that probably doesnt fit into any class of weaponry, plus it looks as if that is from an old western movie, not real life.

author
Ithaca37 (author)grevious2009-01-14

its real I found it from a website.

author
alfpwns (author)Ithaca372009-01-17

how u that site is true? just be cause is on the inter net doesnt make it true

author
dsman195276 (author)grevious2008-11-27

so, this gun is a oxymoron?

author
grevious (author)dsman1952762008-11-27

im not exactly sure what means =]
it means a statement that has two words in it that controdict each other, sort of like a double negative?
eg. "his methods are a cruel kindness"

author
dsman195276 (author)grevious2008-11-27

yes, like "jumbo shrimp" jumbo means big, shrimp means little.

You should give it a really huge handle so it looks like it's the size of a regular pistol, until someone makes it, lol.

author
The Jamalam (author)2008-11-28

hmm great pistol o.o

lol cool but probably not a pistol lol

author
Ithaca37 (author)Liberty Prime2008-11-26

do you see a stock??????

author
Katarukito (author)Ithaca372008-11-26

a gun without a stock does not make it a pistol, for example one of those ak47's i see sometimes don't have a stock but you don't call them pistols

author
nball199 (author)2008-11-26

How do you make the barrel. PIctures are way too far out.
