Those rubber bouncy balls work perfectly for me! I dont know where you're located, but here in the USA just go to party city or party america and and you can find bags of them. Just be sure to find the ones that fit nicely because there are some various sizes and some fit 1 1/4" pipe too so just test some. They can also cause some serious damage, i split a board of wood in half from about 50 yards away. (just watch out to be sure you dont shoot something that will send them bouncing back at you! :wink: )

America, the greatest gangster of all time. With 200 million odd foot soldiers at it's whim and call.
When you fill your car with refined oil remember that it has been paid for with blood and guts, some from your own countrymen, most not.

Use a sabot (like paper towel) to encase the smaller ammo, use the search button.

Damn, you post a new topic every 5 minutes.....

I'm also in CA. As Zen/// quoted me, you can find them at pretty much any party store. I got mine at a party america and there were like 20 in the pack.

They are not that expensive. In my 1" combustion, I like to shoot it at night time (guys like fire). I use glowsticks and wrap a small amount of electrical tape around the base.

Why would you eat a rubber bouncy ball?

He meant he didnt want to use potatoes because he rather eat them. Also the wiki says c batteries fit well.

Carrots? Bread? Playdough? Anything that fits in the barrel? Who cares? Find something, shove it in there, shoot, repeat.

well i've done this for a while but when i run out of potatoes i shoot stuff that doesn't fit perfectly, like zen said you can wrap it in paper towel, or just keep the barrel level and shoot things that are too small, it's really inefficient but things still fly
