Sometimes on my shoulder bazooka style. Other times, I rest the back end on the ground with the barrel pointed up at an angle and use my right hand to pull the ignition

Why is there no "it depends" catogory? I mean, many here have more than 1 launcher.

Typicaly: I use a stand, or a second person... I can't hold it with one hand, and actuate the pilot valve with the other - too long.

It makes sense since my spudgun has a shoulder stock like a rifle, that i hold it like such.

I usually hold mine in front of me against my right thigh. Yes, it's right next to my junk, but I got a good hold of it and the spot makes for good padding and decent acuracy. Otherwise I hold it under my right arm.

I always shoulder mount all my guns(except small ones) it just looks cooler, like army style. besides all mine have handles for that type of mount.

i usually shoulder fire mine, MAX bursting pressure from an aerosol can (HFC #3 man!) is about 60 psi, and the potato is your weakest bursting point. If a 4" piece of pipe is rated at 220 pounds of water pressure id say its ok to safely fire at 60 pounds of air/gas pressure. I feel totally safe launching from my shoulder because of this, if something is gonna blow its gonna be the spud from my barrel.... hehehehe
