Unread postAuthor: auspud » Sat Jan 29, 2011 6:28 pm

1st off great big hello to all cannoneers out there .
it's great to find a place to exchange idea's & info about the good old spud gun . i must say i'm a bit of a novice when it comes to spud guns compared to some of you guy's , but i've still done my fair share of launching hot patato , lemon's ect & anything else that fits down the tube :D .
ok i'm off to read some threads cheers .
wow i don't know where to start ... there's so many types of spud launchers . the one i've been using is a golf ball size with a 120 mm chamber of about 600 mm long , it has a simple bbq type push button ignighter . i wanted to improve the one that already igsists & use some custom ammo . any recommendations as to any mods or up grades i should do to my basic pvc combustion launcher . i want it to fire reliablely . & make a shoulder stock & 2 x pistol grips similar to a rpg with a red dot sight . thanks guy's .

Oh also, enjoy spudding but I warn you I've known an aussie friend from QLD who's been arrested and given 10 years. Old members like Chaos and myself have since left this noble sport and are following slightly less illegal hobbies. Chaos took to building up his sleeper toyota corolla with a turbo charged racing engine and if caught will be facing the new "hoon" laws and I'm investing in slings and sling shots :D

Perhaps we should say "I dreamed about another cannon yesterday, good thing I'm skilled with CAD so I have these realistic pictures".
