What??? Just a link???????? It doesn't even link to a Spudfiles thread.

You know, as a moderator here at the absolutely positively best spud cannon site in the entire universe, technically I could consider this spam since the link leeds to another forum, but it is a OK cannon so I'll let it slide, this time :wink: .

You know, I bet your cannon would look a hell of a lot better if it was to be posted and described here on Spudfiles.

The breach turns, it has a stop built in so it lines up right. At 100PSI Golf balls are lost for ever I have not had a chance to measure distance but the last one cleared a house 600m away and it was still climbing. That was at 80psi.

aWESOME!
I've noticed A&W root beer plastic bottles have an extended top which could be cut off and the top screwed onto a GB using a dry-wall or wood screw.
I think they'd fly straighter that way.

BTW, I'm gratefull that a mod edited my previous rant!!! :) 8)
