It's a joke. "Frocksie" reminds me of some Italian mobster going to kill his cousin at a wedding.

I would make it a coax, but it really cool to shoot a tin can or a water bottle, because of the kick. Also, a tin can shot from this gun has a lot of force behind it, the only downside to shooting tin cans is that they drop almost immediately after leaving the cannon.

hehe, I like the cannon. It looks lethal even if its not the most powerful etc. If its mainly for looks, hows about a spray job? Wouldnt mind seeing that on it...
Otherwise I like the whole rocket launcher feel, and maybe you could modify it for better performance now you've made the prototype... :lol:

Mainly potatoes, but wooden dowels also work. The bolt action is really helpful. As it is all housed in 3in pipe, the bolt action allows the barrel to slide out for loading. It is sealed off from the chamber with tape. With the addition of a camping fan, it is so powerful that it bent the steel handle.

can we see the bolt action, what size is the barrel now,

I was going to say that you should just move the projectile down the barrel, and spray fuel in both the barrel and chammber

I'ts also ironic about the kick because most handheld rocket launchers are recoiless
