how to make a devil's machine that fires clumps of organic material into space... aka : a spudgun

disclaimer: the usual stuff: I am in no possible way responsible for any damage you do to other peoples properties , others and yourself.
I do certainly not encourage shooting at others * ahum ahum uche uche*
long pvc pipe
combustion chamber( mixes the oxygen with fuel)
lighter(cylinder shaped)
pvc cement
cap(the same size as your pvc pipe)
silicone glue

Step 1: Collecting the Parts

Glue one end of the cap to the long pipe with the cement and push it VERY hard for about 1 minute.
glue the combustion chamber to the long pipe with cement
Take a drill and drill a hole about the size of your lighter in the combustion chamber
Insert the lighter into the drilled hole and secure it by using silicone,ducttape,basicly anything that sticks!

Step 2: Shooting the Taters

push a potato halfway in
open the cap at the end of your pipe
spray hairspray inside( 2-3 sec's)
secure the cap in the right way(you don't want it to hit your face when the gun fires)
aim at an angle of 45°
click the lighter and bombs away !!!

-- you can play paintball if you replace the potato with bath pearls
nice spudgun how far does it shoot.
50 meters if you jam the potato in real tight
ok you guys, how about as far as a <em>real </em>gun, I got everything just right, and made it into a rifle, (small barrel)!
just had a sick idea and tried it out , a friend said , what if we use compressed air to turbocharge it , like in cars ... so we did. I shot it if front of my house , and the soundof it fireing was so loud , that we all were deaf for 10 mins , the day after , i tried a point blank shot at a piece of wood 5 cm thick. blew right trough it
looks like you may not have the ideal chamber to barrel ratio . . .I've gotten mine to shoot near 300 yards (about 274 meters) consistently and have heard (possibly tall) tales of much better distances great firing location though!
How does a quarter of a mile sound? :P (true story)
jep , not a person around
