Intro: Vinegar Bazooka

Amaze your friends! Launch vineger rockets with a shoulder held bazooka!

Step 1: Materials

1. A Pvc pipe at least twice the lenght of the bottle.
2. A waterbottle that fits in the pipe.
3. A plastic tube
4. Corke thing
5. Baking soda
6 Vinegar
7. Cone (not pictured, too lazy)
8. Duct tape.


(I made this before I knew about instructables so there aren't many pictures)

Step 2: Cut the Pipe

I found the right size pipe in my garage, it can be as long as you like for improved accuracy, but at least twice the length of the water bottle.

Step 3: Insert Cone

Insert a plastic cone (or anything else to block one end) and cover the same end with duct tape. If you leave holes in the tape, it will have the backfire effect of a bazooka.

Step 4: Enjoy!

This can be used with any bakingsoda vinegar rocket you want. look up how to make the rocket, or keep following this instructable.
*Warning, you might get covered in a very nasty smelling gunk, could get in eye*

Step 5: Building the Rocket

First, put the cork into the small tube, I got mine off of a rocket kit. Fill the tube about three fourths of the way with baking soda. Fill the water bottle with vinegar untill you can tip it completely horizontal without spilling. When it is horizontal, carefully insert the bakingsoda filled tube without spilling the soda into the vineger. Then flip the bottle cork side down and tighten the cork.

Step 6: Putting In

Slide the bottle carefully into the launcher. When time to launch, tip the launcher down and back up in one movement, dumping the bakingsoda into the vinegar and bring it back up, seen in vid.

Step 7: Make Minis!

You can cut the bakingsoda tube to fit in mini bottles to make a small RPG that goes farther.

    In vinegar grenades be sure so scratch the side of a bottle to give a weakspot leading to a better explosion.

    OH SNAP. Time to mod my original blue prints! I just got the idea of putting the rocket in the front like a real rpg, and then use a water rocket set up to shoot it (I've done water rockets before).

    Your perceived IQ lowers with each obvious misspelling (wut and iz), and each idiotic, immature comment. I take it you are below this site's age requirement, which is thirteen. Somewhere around ten, I'd say.

    Youtube is a popular, international site in which users post a wide variety of videos the general public can view.

    Er, hi. Who might you be? Seeing as you're new here, I'll forgive you. Pointless comments like that are not tolerated, we expect a certain amount of maturity on this site, and this falls short. Comments on other people's Instructables contribute to that Instructable, either as constructive or criticism. This is not Youtube.

    Huh? Define sucks a bit better, so I know what you are trying to say.
    It's actually pretty powerful, and has a nice kick (recoil).
