NOt if you put your feet on the ground.

I like it, you should mount it on those electronic whootsies.

I was thinking the exact same thing, I was almost hoping for flying squirrel. Oh well :(

I like the idea of stress balls for sabots. They squeeze down into whatever size barrel you are using and they are lightweight and don't fly far. I would be surprised if you need one in a 2 1/2 inch since the only thing I know of that people shoot is tennis balls and they fit tight enough to be their own sabot.

By the way JSR, I would have liked to see the motocannon fired just once. Come to think of it, it probably was fired just once, then scrapped on account of it almost killing the rider when he went over the handlebars.

Trying to figure out how to make a SCUBA first stage regulator work for portable charging station. If only that pesky job thing didn't keep eating up all my time...

It would have gone a damn sight further than this one :D

Being a recoilless rifle, technically it should have been quite comfortable to fire while the scooter was stationary - provided of course you weren't in the damn thing's blast area :roll: :D

you should make a rapid fire golf ball cannon for the mobility scooter, my guess is you could fit a whole heap of GB's on that thing.
