Or you could take the chalk out of it and fill other things with it... then make a cheap smaller mess many times over.

edit: lol JSR, where do you find all of these great links? Do you hang out with the Google spider bot on your free time?

speaking of Google, guess where I went yesterday? I'll give you a hint: Starts with "Goog", and ends with "le". Thats right, I went the the god damn Google campus! My dads friend is the dean of Google University, and we got a tour from a guy with the coolest business card ever. It says:
Chade-Meng Tan
Jolly Good Fellow
(which nobody can deny)

and its got the Google logo next to it, all nice, big and Googlely.

I couldn't find this with a search, so...

Croquet balls. I just tried one on a whim, and it fits 3" SCH-40 BETTER than a golfball fits 1 1/2" SDR-21! I hope someone hasn't already though of this. Also, I don't know if croquet balls come in different sizes.

This is what i use in my 32mm barrel.
its a 20mm pvc pipe cut to bout 10cm with rolled up towel at the back and a 10mm bolt in front with towel or tape around forced into the pipe goes through a PC case at about 30-40m will put up the damage pics soon. I use a small self screw to hold the towel in place.

Eggs actually fit really well in 40mm PN12 Pipe. The same pipe as golfballs. They fit really well but are a bit tight. PN11 or 10 would probably be the best but that might be getting a bit dangerous...(Rated to 150psi...)
EDIT: Wow im a specialist now.. never noticed.

I had a cannon with a 1" barrel and I maily used tent stakes with 1" washers welded on the end. The damage was very impressive. I remember sinking one about 3" into a tree. Mind you, these things are about 1/2" diamater and it was only 80psi with a sprinkler valve.
Sorry I don't have the pictures of them...

If yall are looking for some good links, check out google's spudgun links section. Its been pretty helpful

Has anyone tried to make slugs out of red jello? I doubt it would be very effective at any range, but I think these would make good makeshift paintballs if they could be got to stick together on their way out of the barrel.
