Got a small 3/4" cannon I use for shotgunning airsoft pellets - really just need to pour them down the barrel and then everyone else gets the hell away (yes, it hurts to be shot with, just kinda...). Fire 'em up and it will literally rain pellets after a moment.

But as for the real you''ll-shoot-your-eye-out ammo which I don't reccoment for nailing friends with: marbles. Put a piece of fabric or paper towel over the barrel them ram 'em down 18th century style and you'll never see them again.

On that thought, if you could get a hold of them, MUSKETBALLS!

I find that pouring dog food down the barrel with wadding is work pretty well, those pellet dog food things not the bone shaped ones.

I tried looking through all the posts but didn't see it mentioned.
Jaffas are great ammo or basically any sort of round confectionery. Jaffas are awesome because they explode nicely on hitting target(no evidence). also for us Aussies they are a perfect fit for 20mm/ 3/4" electrical conduit.

Sorry Aussie term. They are a round red hard shelled chocolate confectionery which was often consumed at the movie theater and more often than not rolled down the aisles.
I forgot this is the world wide web and not everyone is familiar with Australian confectionery

Y'know the no shooting people thing is there as much for other peoples safety as your own.

Someone getting painfully hit by a wodge of recycled grass fresh from a bovines ar*e is likely to be upset enough to try beating you to death/until visibly in pain/sorry.


Ps. Those jaffas sound nice, cadburys don't do them here :(

Could Whoppers (US) or Maltesers (Europe)be a similar alternative?

Don't see why not, though Jaffa's are far tougher.
