My Potato Gun!!! Gotta see this!!!

http://videos.streetfire.net/video/1...47B95D7603.htm


This is my redneck self havin a little fun, and this video doesn't make this thing sound as loud as it really is, it makes my ears clog up and ring for like 10 mins every time i shoot it!! The golf balls that I shoot into the air go completely out of sight, it is shooting them almost a mile!! we have measured!

I had one of those 10 years ago. You country boys sure know how to have a good time. HaHaHa . You need to add an adapter to the end of that thing so you can shoot chickens out of it.

Yep. I went through the spud gun stage once. Tried every type of spray fuel we could think of including most brands of hairspay. Came down to about 4 seconds of Aquanet brand for the best bang out of our combustion chamber. That was until after several beers and getting the bright idea of hooking nitrous up to it...

No lie, you could see the orange flame through the pvc pipe. It would kick hard enough that you had a hard time holding on to it. It would send potatos right out of sight if they held up. Now that I'm older and wiser I HIGHLY recomend not trying this. (That's my disclaimer)

if you want some added distance try some white lithiem grease. thts not spelled right but you get it. spray some down the muzzle and load a tater in and it'll get. if my memory serves me correctly , we once used a VERY SMALL shot of starting fluid in one with the hair spray. that was intresting. i wouldn't try it again unless the money was right.

02 and acetleyn

we used to use a little oxygen and acetlyne, then with our 1 1/2 barrel we used 1 1/4 inch ball bearings and shoot through 55 gallon drums at the other end of our welding shop. luckily we only had one blow up on us, good thing it was clamped down to a shop vise.

Anyone have any good build sheets for one of these monsters... let have a contest! Build it, make it look good, and then lets see who's can shoot through the most or who can get some serious distance! I'm all about these things. I'll never forget when I had a bud in Delaware and we hit the back of a house from ATLEAST 200yds away, I don't think I ever laughed so hard in a long while! haha
