you've got to be kidding me, you unscrew the end cap and spray the fuel in, then put the cap on and press the ignitor, if you cant figure something that simple out, dont go playing around with homemade cannons

I built a very similar design out of PVC. It worked when I got the fuel load right -- which was too infrequent to be fun.

The best part was when I flooded the chamber and left it to dry. A couple hours later a friend picked it up, hit the button on the BBQ lighter. There was a satisfying pop and a slight muzzle flash. Fortunately there was no round on the chamber or a Mac G5 might have gained a new cooling vent.

I think that is a sweet gun. I think you should add a strap so it can be straped to you. Hella cool. paint looks cool but could be better. :D

Sweet,
