Hey All,
Newbie here and just thought I'd post my funny video. I also challenge anyone to beat me by launching a set of Christmas lights over a roof :) .

If you used a heavier plug, and shoved it to the bottom of the barrel, and with the right launch angle, you probably could have shot the strand on to the roof. Cool idea, not really practical...
