I have 3 potato launchers. My largest being a 7 foot bazooka. It has a 3 foot long, 4 inch diamameter blast chamber, and a 4 foot long 2 inch barrell. I shoots potatoes well over 750 feet. My question is has anyone made a really tiny one? Like the size of a hand gun? i was thinking 2 inch diameter for chamber and a 1 inch for barrell. Has anyone had experience build a small one? Thanks.

The one I'm working on has a 550 mL chamber and 3/4" barrel. NOTE: unless you're using metered propane, these minis will be a PITA to get to work right...

I have three or four cannons with 2" chambers and from 1/2,3/4,1" barrels.
They ar e fun to shoot but don't have near the power of a larger cannon with say,a 4" chamber. I shoot paint balls and small spuds with them mostly.
I had one that was a pistol that was pretty neat but I have since cannibalized it to build something different.

check out my mini bb gun, search for it. It is one of the smallest cannons on the site.

I know what you mean, but I drive a car and it kind of hard to transport a 7 foot cannon regularly. I figured while going smaller I should try to make a hand gun. That one made of copper was really cool, I'm thinking of trying that. Thanks guys.
