When I shot the potato it went 20 feet.




If you need any help, leave a comment.

Step 1: Materials

Materials:
Empty pill bottle
Matches
Pen
Hair spray
Knife or drill
And the most important thing of all,
A potato or an apple. My first time to make one I used a apple.

Step 2: Take the Pen Apart.

Take the pen apart (only keep the tube). 

Step 3: Drilling the Hole.

Once you're done drilling the holes, insert the tube.
If you need a picture, look at the first picture.

Step 4: Bullets.

Step 5: The Propellant.

Step 6: Lighting It.
