years ago I had a totally sweet air powered one. That thing would shoot a sparkplug through a picket fence at 30' paces. Insane. I would charge it to 120psi (or as high as compressor went)

I had another that shot raquetballs so far up that I would lose them and not recover them and it made one HELL of a pop when it launched.

Yep, lots of fun.

hehe.

Is that propane powered? I had one when I was in high school, a good shot of ether or hairspray would send a tater farther and faster than it should have gone. FUN!! They are dangerous though, be carefull

We got one here at the house but haven't shot it in years. Need to build a new one cause it would probably explode if we shot it

If you look them up, there is an exact science to Expansion Chamber Size - Barrel Length.
And they tell you how are you can launch things with certain size guns.

The last one my dad built out of pvc blew up because he ran out of Aquanet and thought oxy-acetylene from a torch might work.
