I use a golf ball. :D It fits the hand and provides a good grip for aiming.

Image Rules.

Never underestimate the power of your spudgun, or assume that a helmet made to protect against low velocity impact will not shatter into a cloud of secondary fragments when struck by a projectile from a spudgun.

And yes, you really should get a better ignitor, fuses are too unpredictable. The piezo from a clicky type cigarette lighter will suffice.

Simple. This is the only active spudgun forum on the internet, and it's near the top of most search engine results for 'potato gun' and similar terms.

It's also simple to take care of them. This place just needs a heavier banhammer and a greater number of active moderators.

... and maybe a mythbusters style demonstration video of a motorcycle helmet wearing ballistic gel dummy with a spine analogue showing that while a potato might not penetrate the helmet, it can still have enough energy to snap your spine...

Yeah, its like getting whacked in the dome with a baseball bat. Maybe even worse! People don't seem to get it. The potatoes haul very major ass. Its nothing to jack around with.
