Default who has a potato cannon?

I dug up some pics of my potato cannon-

uses propane and a meter valve- and the 4 spark combustion rail system I designed using the electrical components from a gas range the barrel is double-wall with foam insulation in the barrel void- the combustion purge fan came out of a desktop computer.
I'll post some finished pics later- right now it's black, has a pipe stand and a remote user control box
I swear I can hit the moon with a potato-

anyone else into launching produce at the spped of sound

I wanted to- I have so many cool projects- from custom made 4 cylinder 2 stroke mini sand rails to a motorized skateboard I built 20 years ago before anyone even heard of'em- but all of my pics ended up on cd's and I have dozen's of cd's all over the place- I just didn't get around to digging the pics out in time

is that a dare
I'm somewhat an expert at getting things airborne... and at rolling polaris atv's (beating scoot to the punch )

this is a sweet pumpkin cannon!






hehe- and one of my favorites to watch in slow motion

I've fired a pneumatic one that was surprisingly powerful and also a WD-40 powered one.
