i got the idea of putting two pringles cans together and poking a hole the bottom of the first one and a taking the lid off the second one so once you light the first one it would like the second one which would fire w/e the ammo is.what could i use as a barrel and would it work?

Sounds like the cannons of old days, tape up tennis ball cans, burrie it in the ground, squirt lighter fluid all over the insides of the cans drop in a tennis ball, then throw in a lit match. Dont be standing in the way, a firey tennis ball comes flying out!
And that my friend is the first basic ball cannon.

yea, lol, once my friend came over andhte compressor was busted :x so we got some 90 mm sch80 that was lying around and taped up the back, and drilled a hole in the top, and filled it with propane, it only fired a tenis ball like a metre tho, because of the pathetic fit of the tenis ball.
