a grip of darts with wadding... :lol:

on a more serious note, try looking for a nerf dart or rocket that fits well? I have never really worried about causing less damage so I havent looked too much into this.

Uumm well, you could always shoot wiffle golfballs, the practice golf balls although I'm not sure how much fun that would be.

Yeah haha, it's not really much of a golfball cannon if you're not shooting golfballs :lol:

Why don't you just call it a potato cannon or similar? :wink:

BTW, some power plugs fit in golfball barrels.

At Dick's sporting goods they carry practice golf balls made of foam that actually work.
They work.
They are a little bit smaller than the real ones but should still work well with some wadding.
