speaking of cows in a non spud gun accident, me and my buddies were out coyote hunting with 22's seen some eyes so all 6 of us unloaded all 10 shots in each gun and then realized there were a bunch more eyes around and one started mooing. that was freaking crazy

Lets try to keep this on topic :)

Lets also mention our accidents, and what we can do to avoid them so others can learn from our mistakes.

I will share one of my experiences, ammo can bounce! I found this out while shooting an empty 12g CO2 cartridge into plywood. The shot missed, hitting the ground before it hit my target (I was shooting downhill). The ground was hard and instead of being stuck in the ground, it bounced straight off and FLEW into the air then into a neighbors yard.

Solution - Make sure you hit your target! Maybe don't shoot downhill either... :oops:

Ok well my accident happened a couple of weeks ago and me and my friend were test firing my cannon in my room at like 5 psi with cups and when it fired sum times it made this hilarious noise and i was trying to pump it up to 30 and my friend kept tapping the blow gun and shooting me with the cup in it so i put my 1.5" barrel in the 2" and i forgot there was a cup in there and then he fired it at about 10 psi and the dixie cup pushed the barrel out the barrel at my knee and it felt like i got hit by a bat and it bleed for a little while.

Another accident was even more recent like 5 days ago i was trying to pry off the casing of a golf ball after i had cut a circle around using a pocket knife blade and the blade closed on my finger and bleed profusely and wouldn't stop but it did after about an hour and it was really deep i don't no if it needed stitches or not bur oh well and it actually didn't hurt because i guess i cut the nerve and the top of my finger is numb also i was using the saw on my pocket knife and it slipped while cutting a ring around a golf ball and i sliced my finger open with the saw blade that one hurt pretty bad.

the third thing i did this weekend wasn't really accident but a good way to loose a caulk tube. well what i did was wrap a caulk tube up in too much duct tape to make it sealed it fit fine on my 2 inch barrel but i have this piece of sch80 pipe that is about 6.5 feet long and doesn't need a coupler to add a fitting so it just slips over my barrel and i fired it and the caulk tube got stuck half way in the long sch80 barrel and flew off my gun about 20 - 30 feet and i had to ram it out with a steel rod destroying my caulk tube.

thats it

wow that was long sorry

How did pressure rated parts blow up on you with a combustion design? If abs/dwv and withstand it, I think you might of done something wrong.
