GO TO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykF3TUTI2hU TO SEE HOW TO MAKE A POTATO CANNON! THIS IS NOT MY VIDEO BUT THIS IS THE VIDEO I USED TO CREATE MY OWN LAUNCHER. IT IS A GREAT VIDEO!!
Step 1: THE MAGICAL GROCERY BAG!
Who would know how useful they would be??? Grocery bags are amazing tools to make projectiles, or for shooting something out that wouldn't fit in the chamber otherwise. So grab a few grocery bags and your ready! Or if your too poor to afford a grocery bag..... an old shirt will work fine too. (GRAB MORE THAT ONE BAG BECAUSE THEY GET MELTED, SAME FOR SHIRTS).
Step 2: THE ROCK PROJECTILE
This is called the Rock Projectile.... A.K.A your worst nightmare! Take a handful of rock and put them inside the grocery bag. Roll the bag into a ball and cram them into the chamber (YOU MAY NEED TO REMOVE SOME ROCKS DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF YOUR PVC). Once the bag of rocks is snug in the chamber, FIRE! Rocks will shoot out everywhere. It's SWEET! We tested it out on a reality sign and it made so many dents in it! I don't recogmend aiming OR shooting at anything living.
Step 3: THE WEENIE ARROW
The Weenie Arrow is fun for cookouts to get a good laugh out of people. Take your weenie (NO NOT THAT ONE!) and put it in the bag and set it on the opening of the barrel and shove into the barrel till its a tight fit. Fire it off and your weenie should go a good 200-300 yards. Atleast in my cannon it it.
Step 4: The Tube Shooter
The tube shooter is good for maximum damage,depending on what fills the tube that is. We used some kind of metal cylinder filled with sealing liquid or something like that from a nearby construction. it weighed a good 2-3 pounds. Wrap the plastic bag AROUND the tube and shove it in the barrel. If it worked right, it should be quite snug. Aim it at something and BOOM that sucker can be deadly. Seriously.
