Do an instructable man. I laughed at this. Brilliant.

I will probably do this project, and use my Three Stooges lighter for the heat source, now that I don't smoke any more. Plus, it seems oddly appropriate for this use.

Thanks for the instructable! (author)2011-02-14

If its metal you could use propane, you would have more than twice as much power, just need a stand.

I always said that with a large enough potato gun you could rule the world ... well I bow down before your superior potato delivery system!

zascecs (author)2009-12-08

whoh! Big recoil! you're lucky that you're not a kid, 'cause you would have flown back pretty well far and into a tree!

yusuf786 (author)2010-04-17

gotanysparecake (author)2010-03-30

You should make a shoulder-fired mod, and make an 'ible. Nice work, man.

HAHAHA! WOW! That could DISMEMBER someone. Mount it on a tank as a turret and fire aluminum slugs since steel might be too heavy.

nutsandbolts_64 (author)2010-02-12

Imidiately after i saw that, i thought you could load some explosive ordnance in there! Mount it on a truck as an anti-material rifle!

rycallahan (author)2009-11-03

Dude, I'm pretty sure that thing WILL blow someones head off!

_-MacGyver-_ (author)rycallahan2009-12-29

dude my gun will blow someone's head off - its a rather simple design too
it depends on what you use to power it

astrong0 (author)2009-08-18

oh my god i made one that shoots 2000 g ammo!

MrMystery96 (author)astrong02009-12-16

i made a spud gun the size of a large rifle that will launch 2000 g ammunition, at great distances. not that big of a feat.

ignasm (author)2009-11-12

this is sick

mr. clean (author)2009-11-09

good lord what did u use to make it. And hair spray will do THAT !!!!

MistaStokes (author)2009-10-23

lol the recoil is amazing! My friends and I did something similar with mortar fireworks in a pvc tube, but nothing close to that!

NIJU! (author)2009-08-06

i like the vid with the incendiary roundes (:

Sergant Tinkers (author)2009-06-06

Friggin' AMAZING! How much did that cost, and could you make an instructable on it? That could tear down a small home with the right ammo!

CrazeexGood (author)2009-05-23

this could probably take out some small, propeller driven aircraft.... MOUNT IT ON A PLANE

voltagedude (author)2009-04-09
