Big Balls

Unread postAuthor: taterjim » Wed Dec 06, 2006 8:31 pm

Tennis balls are fun to shoot ,but I found a ball at Wal-Mart called ,
Cat,dog toy. It fits nicely in a 4" barrel . The ball is constructed with about the same material as the dog balls that are tennis ball sized.So far I have had some shots of just over 500' ,
Not bad for the size of it, and it produces a noticable kick.

This picture gives a comparison of the bigger ball to a tennis ball. the smaller ball is not really a tennis ball but it is the same size.

Here is a picture of the Big ball cannon alongside the tennis ball cannon, of course the barrel are removable and interchangable.Both cannons have plug and play stun guns and an activation button on the handle. one has a clean out plug with handles.

Pictured here is the Big ball cannon with a tank extension, The extension gave a noticeable boost in power . I made it from a 4" threaded pipe connector with a cleanout adapter glued in.It adds about 5 or 6 inches to the combustion tank and is removable.
