I found 10 ft of either 6" or 8" SOLIDWALL ABS pipe on the side of the road, I haven't picked it up yet, but I am hoping to get a truck there today

Check if a soccerball fits. If it does, it's 8" pipe. The only bad thing about huge pipe is getting fittings. I found 20 feet of 8" PVC and am trying to make it into a soccer ball gun, but plugging it is annoying. I have found a solution though!

Its abandoned, no construction anywhere.
I have no idea what to do with it, I find it hard to make a enormous combustion of that size in secret.

I agree with mopher man, you should bury all but like a foot of it with a long hose for filling venting.

I also think that you should bury it, except all the way, and then have a cover with grass on top of it. And, if you are asked why there is a cannon buried in the back yard, say that a neighbors dog did it. :twisted:
