hey, i'm new to this forum, this is the second pneumatic cannon I've made and the first one that shoots cans, i'd love to hear your feedback on the video and the cannon alike.

I like your cannon, and the concept of shooting cans of soda, aerosol cans etc. Imagine a cone in the front to guide the "projectile" right.

Weapons do not exist, they are built. This hobby is a science - totally procedural art.

Nice example of the tried and tested quick exhaust valve + three way valve trigger setup, great work!

You got a loisence for that can cannon mate?


Seriously though, as it's a barrelled device that generates over 12 ft lbs of energy, and assuming you're in the UK, you might be accused of being in possession of an illegal weapon by an overzealous law enforcement officer.

Nice! I bet an empty can with a cone on the end would go farther because it weighs less.
