    Thanks for this posting as I've thought many times of the clothes-pin guns I made as a kid but couldn't recall just how. But you might want to edit as CANNON is a gun whereas CANON is a rule ;)

    Nice and simple, not to mention Awesome!

    Have to say though I was disappointed you didn't add a striker to the end of it so it shot Flaming Matches :D

    Anlongside a "Don't do this at home" message ofcourse :)
