marshmallows fit in 1 inch barrels and are very cool because you can shoot them at friends (within reason)

Chap stick tubes work well in .5 inch pipe, and splat all over.

I shot one of those out of my paintball barrel (with some wadding) at 80psi and it went right through a piece of drywall and exploded upon impact with my shed. Very messy.

Nails with the head sawn off and with a unravelled tail of string taped on are amazing darts in fibreglass tent poles with a hollow 4mm core.

Very accurate and I can embed them halfway through a 1/2" plank at 160psi

The fibreglass barrel is attached to the rest of the cannon by embedding one end in a pipe section filled with hot melt glue. Doesn't budge.

Do allot of poo in your barrel after a heavy night of mexican burritos and beer. Now sneak into the bushes and wait for a pedestrian to stroll by. Just before you plaster them with poo, yell out, "look out" their mouth will be open and their eyes will be sticking out like golf balls, now let er' rip. (Make sure you have an escape plan in place and you wear protective clothing in case of a messy richochet). Now run for your life at high speed yelling "there's a poo flinging maniac in the bushes". :o

It should work pretty well but i can't test it.(haven't got a 2.5" launcher.)
If you have a 1.5" cannon a good ammo is a small egg That has been frozen for a while ween it hits there is a mess when it thaws and starts to rot. :twisted:

one idea that i have not tried and may work well and may be dangerous is spraying a tennis ball with aerosol deodorant and firing it from a combustion cannon, it would make a nice fireball. but I have no idea how well it would work even if it would work at all.

Well i don"t know if it work or not but i can tell you this much if you do happen to try it then it would end you up in jail if you got caught. Some law says something about a cannon is legal unless proven to be a letal weapon.(I THINK :? ) Like i said i'm not sure but sounds like fun.

Flaming or explosive projectiles are generally banned under law.

Whatever, discussion is definately banned on this forum.
