My second youtube video (shooting 3 cannons)

Unread postAuthor: BowerR64 » Tue Apr 08, 2014 1:09 am

I took 3 of em to this road/overpass that gets little to no traffic. A guy with a crotch rocket was flying back and forth between shots teaking his bike or something.

I tried the carboard sleve to reduce the bore size from 3" to the 2.6 standard tennis balls but it just shreaded the cardboard lol

Im putting some miles on these cannons



3 of the 4 i have finished

Love the muzzle blast!

Not sure if I can condone shooting projectiles down an active roadway though, what if you knocked a guy off his bike?

It isnt really active, the whole time i was there he was speeding back and forth doing well over 100 mph. Its a spot that people sometimes race on weekends and we were using visual signals notice he was rolling till after the shot then he took off down the middle of the road!

Its an over pass that wasnt finished there are no on ramps or off ramps to the road just miles back roads to get to it. The first day i shot the mini cannon i was there for over 2 hours not one car drove by.

I could of edited that out :/

I shot the Nerf one again today 5 more times i about lost another ball because of the wind. Im down to 5 balls now i lost one at a friends last weekend. Using 1/8 teaspoon carbide im getting some very consistant shots.

I may have to rig up a button triggered stopwatch with a beeper or something and setup a target.
