Looks pretty awesome. Is it worth sacrificing a drill for it though?

I heard large scale telsa coils can be used to create artificial lightning. I wonder if it would work in spudguns?

Ah yes, the old "why use a piezo ignitor when I can use a tesla coil to fire my cannon instead!" idea :P

The counter argument pushed out is that it would look cool or something.
