Thanks, but I personally think that Copperhead Prime is a more attractive launcher than HEAL is.
HEAL can look reasonable if polished up, but it wasn't designed with looks in mind - Practicality and power were the order of the day when I made this - and so most of the time it's a dull brown, because I can't be bothered to polish it that often.

It has a laser doodah, but it's not very powerful, but on a cloudy day over a short distance, it's good for getting a rough idea of where your ammo is going.

That would be nice, but I'm budgeting for a new project, and a decent green laser costs quite a bit.
I'll swap to a green laser at another date perhaps, but for now, it's the cheapo red-dot one.

I'm back home for the weekend, so as I promised, I'm making a video.
I can't show it just yet, I've only got some of the segments I need, and it's now far too dark for the camera to see anything.

Still got some shots off though, and I'd forgotten just how much I love the solid "PTHOOM" sound HEAL makes without the suppressor.

Although neither my time, or Spudfiles are democracies, any suggestions (for stuff you want to see blown to hell) that can reach me before about 1000 GMT stand a chance of being added if I've got the stuff to do it with.
Ammo is going to be mostly limited to spuds, marbles, and paintballs (frozen or otherwise), but I'll be on the lookout for some other stuff to entertain you with.

Shoot some full aerosol cans, if you can that looks really cool.

How to make a kick-ass shooting video:

1.Set a 13kg propane cylinder on ground.
2.Load cannon with some sort of finned and saboted arrow.
3.Pour petrol on ground around propane cylinder
4.Get a friend to light petrol.
5.Fire arrow through cylinder immediately (from safe distance of ~100 yards)
6. Watch massive fireball
7. Listen for sirens
8. Run like hell
9. Upload video to Youtube before armed response unit shows up

10. Cut your leg on fence while running away
11. Fall over
12. Have 6 guys weighing over 180pounds jump on you
13. Get handcuffed in the back of a cop car
14. Spend the night in lock up
15. Sell your car to pay $5,000 fine
16. You're never allowed to build spudguns again but we applaud you anyway for your effort and sacrifice.

As I type this, the video is uploading. Should be done very shortly, before I send this post in fact.
It's the most complex video I've ever cut together, but I'm happy.

I couldn't find any aerosol cans I didn't need, sorry about that.
The final cut hasn't got a huge amount of video footage, 7 launches (6 damage) and 5 miscellaneous takes, but it has a few new still images in it to help make up for that.
And even with a special pump, pumping that chamber up to 300 psi is hard work, so I can only do so many shots at a time, and daylight is short at the moment.

If you like it, kindly spare a few seconds to rate and comment on the video on Youtube. I spent many hours making this, I ask but a mere fraction of that in return.

Enjoy!
BTW, I recommend you watch the whole way through the (short) credits, or you'll miss the outtake near the end.

Just wait until v2.0 is finished :twisted:
Just watch the 3 second video in my sig. That was at 350 psi, and I plan on bringing it to 500.

Great video Rag, it's refreshing to see a properly built spud gun on Youtube. They really are few and far between.
