... by not shooting oranges? If you're serious about distance, fruit is the last thing you should be firing. Some good ideas in this thread: http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/spudgun ... 22491.html

propane > axe.

For best performance and if you're having ignition problems, try using some diborane gas in your chamber. It should improve ignition performance quite a bit!

Yes, that's roughly correct. Check out the wiki link at the top of the page. Pretty much everything you've ever wanted to know is in there.
