I need Spudgun failure pics please

Unread postAuthor: geardog32 » Thu Oct 07, 2010 8:43 pm

I am going to be writing a manual on spud guns for my technical and science writing class and I need pictures of spud gun failures for my proposal. I know i have seen many of them on here but the search is not my friend.
