Various cash and cheques, new wallet (a good thing, as my old one wasn't great), COD4 for my laptop (not had it before, already liking it lots), a book about drugging elephants, calendar (three guesses what the calendar's subject was, first two don't count), and a few minor assorted things.

I didn't really get anything spud related, but I did get a $50 gift card to PepBoys auto store, so if I can't find anything that my truck needs I might buy a shock pump.

I got a entirely new computer tricked out for gaming (this one was a total shocker) and about $150 in cash, plus a scale model RTF A-10 Warthog EDF R/C plane and a 2.4GHZ wireless camera.

A laptop (which I am using now) which can and will be used as a homemade chronograph. I also got a 400 psi shock pump. It pumps pathetically slow but at least I have high pressure. I will probably make a homemade one though.

I got a 2 dollar scratcher lottery ticket which in turn won 100 bucks. I bought me a compressor with it. I also got a dremel bit set.

How long is that pump? I am making a mini shock pump right now. Also what is the pump cylinder I/D?

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

The ID is probably around 7mm the body (not including handle/rod)is around 15 centimeters long. If you are making it, make the cylinder a lot longer.

Yes, but they have very little volume which means it will take forever for it to get to the pressure you want.

May I suggest making a pen gun or a small coaxial for use with them as VH_man suggested above. Those are the only things in my mind worth pumping for.
