My guns made out of a pill jar and a Bic round stick pen body.
The spark is made from two screws and some wire i was useing a car battery but i want to get a bbq sparker. I made little projectiles out of cut in half hollow q-tips and copper wire sharpened at the end. then i glued the wire in and boom they are like blow gun darts. :D

Yep i just need the funds and im making a 5' combustion. and / or a cannon i designed that will hopefully shoot golf balls about three hundred yards. (5''dia chamber (jacketed) and a 8 ft muzzle. I'm designing a "clip" for golf balls tommy gun style.)
We have land in logan county ohio and i want to do tests on site. :D
I'll get the designs on here when i am finished if anyone wants to use them. :twisted:

Nice plans. Via your pill shooter. I made the exact one but then wasn't really satisfied with the power (It could shoot a BB over a 2 story building) so I made a bigger one.

The design was the same only it was bigger. NOw it can shoot a nail through cardboard and a thin layer of plastic at the same time. Didn't really test how far it can shoot but I'll post some pics later.

BTW You avatar looks a bit like a blow fish :wink:
