I would advise you not to do that! potato guns are very dangerous! NEVER STAND IN FRONT OF THE BARREL!!! i now leave it up to you to decid4e your own fate, but keep in mind my subtle warning...

o.0

If it really can only launch potatoes about 33m it'll be about as dangerous as a bowler/pitcher/whatever else you'd like to think of.

I just wouldn't want to catch soggy potatoes :P

:cry:

I always hear about events involving potato guns and science classes, but we have never done anything of the sort at our school. My science teacher doesnt even know what a potato gun is.

Sounds fun.

Your teacher is an idiot. Shooting spuds so that the students can catch them... Idiotic.

But I will get to do a project on potato guns in school :)

Standing in front is a bad idea but your teacher sounds really cool for doing this, any teacher who will do something just out of the blue is great, its a lot better than sitting in class all day taking notes. My uncle teaches and he shoots his gun for his science class and they're all amazed how powerful it is. 8) :lol:

I think he knows what he is doing, he must have a 2.5 barrel, and set to low psi, and aims it at an angle. For a baseball feild range thats not very strong
is the gun a pnuematic or combustion
