That is a humongous cannon. Are you sure it is the largest cannon to date? DR will probably go and then beat that record or something...

I'm pretty sure he meant it is HIS largest cannon to date.
If not, DR beat that more than a year ago with his basketball cannon.

Regardless, nice cannon!

Nice, but the fuel is oxi-acetaline, not that its wrong to use that but do you have an worries about the structure under those extreme pressures? But having a cannon on an ATV is very functional. You have made your own tank, and for that I tip my hat to you...

Great gun, hope to see more soon.

Guy's, he meant HIS largest cannon to date. Also, do you think with such a short membership he went archive diving for DR's original basketball cannon or his cantaloupe cannon?

Great job, Karpa, and I hope you get the stand and pneumatics I got you set up and functional. Like I said before, if that 3/4" cylinder doesn't have enough area to move that beast, (I was going off your original designs when I ordered it ;)), we can send it back in, (McMaster will return anything for any reason, [any logical reason]), and get a 1-1/4" cylinder or higher. But I believe the right fulcrum and proper counterweight, (if possible), will defeat any problems. Are you still planning on a 7-gallon carry tank?

The gun he is presenting, (the one mounted on the four-wheeler), is not fueled by oxygen/acetylene, (yes, Karpa, you spelled that horribly wrong), it's the big metal gun on the ground next to the four-wheeler that is fueled by 0<sub>2</sub>/C<sub>2</sub>H<sub>2</sub>. The cannon he is presenting, (the "LRC-150"), is fueled by MAPP gas.

Karpa, you worked hard enough on the internals and such, (the fan, ignition system, etc.), you should show them off as well!

Nice cannon. I think that is the first potato gun mounted on an ATV that I have seen.

I would much like to see some pics of the internals.

Thanks for the comments. As soon as I get around to it I will post more pictures and a video.
