  • Hold onto your seat
  • Couldn't help my self. Had to order a black powder golf ball motar for my collection. This should be fun with my 1" cannon as a side kick LOL.

  • Hey Dan go to utube "how to make a potato gun". My friend made one of these we had a blast up at the river. We shot that thing off of a high embankment down the river and the river curved about 200 yds. down. It would shoot the potatoes in the woods beyond the curve. He fueled it with hair spray. It really packed a punch and would cause some serious injury if you were shot with it.

  • Gave one of mine to a buddy that builds monster trucks. He is going to make a tripod mount for it so it can be aimed accurately. I'm getting close to 400 yards with mine using White Rain hair spray.

  • Well that explains it. Always wondered where the heck the
    golf balls in my woods were coming from? Could be as far
    as a mile away you say.

  • That's cute. The golf ball could be your warning shot.

  • The new cannon came in the mail today. 1.75" bore just the right size for golf balls. Max charge is 140 grains FFFG and will launch a golf ball 1 mile.

    Laurie got a bunch of ping pong balls for me to shoot out of it this weekend. Wonder what else I could shoot out of it? Have a couple boxes of peeps left over wonder how far they fly? LMAO

  • Careful. It's addictive. I made one out of oil rig drill stem, bored out to shoot soda cans. First one disintegrated as it left the barrel, but others would hold up if I shook it up first. Then we would fill them with mortar mix. Baby food jars of mortar mix has also worked. Then someone got the idea to make a sabot that would cradle a bowling ball. That was a blast, so to speak. we ended up tethering the sabot to the ground with a long rope.
