You don't have to make a custom barrel, just chuck a spud down first

sorry it's taking so long: the weather has not improved any, and the gun is still icy.

Hey Zeigie, even if you hold it on the ground it does not mean it's pointing straight up. All I meant by "skilled" was it would be more difficult than most people would think to point a cannon upwards and think the projectile(unless it's kind of heavy) will come even almost straight back down. Don't treat me like an idiot. I would hope you and everyone esle on this site is responsible enough not to shoot up in the air. You could seriously hurt yourself or some one else.

learn to spell my name...
i'm not treating you like an idiot i'm just saying it doens't take that much skill. to me that is strait up and down enuf, if you can make a reasonable cannon. if not then get one of the yard sticks that measure angles with teh bubbles (forget name for now lol >_<) shooting but isn't dangerous if you just dake cover suck as a deck or a board over your head, with a cellphone that posses less danger. infact you are right the wind would move the projectile leaving for what i can imagen more chance of the cannon hurting you than the phone. so don't knock me cuz u think someones trying to treat you liek an idiot.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

who cares the only thing that is cool to shoot straight up in the air are rockets and incendiaries (which are also against the rules). unless we were going to salute the mp3 player on its journey into space, Its not worth it, and is too risky to get good footage, unless you wanted to see schmanman get hit which might be a little funny :lol: no offence,

also I'm pretty sure garrettee misspelled your name on purpose zeig read "Hey Zeigie" out loud[/quote]

Don't get mad ziegs spud. I was referring to straight up and down not straight up and down enuf. And I want to thank medievalman for the correct pronuciation of "zeigie"(which was meant to be a joke,gees). And take all the cover you want, I'm not doing it.
