potatoes (obviously), 1.25'' pvc with and end cap on it work VERY well, golf balls with wadding work really nicely, if it pneumatic, fill the barrel with water, it has a nice recoil too.

another good ammo is a dried up lime ( the process takes atleast a month) or basically a lime not in a fridge for a while. or you could just use a lemon or a lime they are great ammo! :twisted:

If you use a ball of paper towel slightly larger than the barrel as "wadding", you can fire just about anything, eg: rocks, whole cranberries(nice shotgun effect), small plastic bag full of water, etc.

The small nerf footballs fit perfectly, and can easily fly a couple hundred yards with a crappy sprinkler valve cannon.

There are tons of posts just like this. Why. Why do you have to do this to me. Once more if you havn't already heard, anything that you can fit into the barrel, you can shoot.

Just because you are board, dosn't mean me or anyone else has too put up with this. You are somthing I like to call a post whore. Go play a Game Boy or something. Next time you have a thought, let it go.
