Pneumatics are mor powerful for a given size, Hybrids are the most powerful for a given size....

Dude I do not know the guy who is posting. If I could make a video i would but I figureed you trust me.

I open the lid spray 9-12 seconds of deoderent or hair spray then i screw the lid on real quick and it shoots pretty far 150-200 yards. Just find any apples that will fit in the barrel and some cans also fit in their. I think it shoots to hard when you use cans (Shoulders start to hurt after a while) But thats just me. I deffently recomend a combustion cannon for beginners because there for 1.cheep and 2.easy . They go a pretty good distance . About as far as you need it to, and with much power also. They last a decent time if you clean it and use deoderent. I would first build combustion, and then afterwords If you dont like it build a pneumatics.
Heres a 3 second low quality video.... combustion. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... +gun&hl=en
You could google video spud guns and see wich one you would rather have. Take note that not all spud guns are big like the one i made.

Im only 13 and havnt been into the hole spudding thing for much more than a year. In that time I have made one combustion and 6six pneumatics. I will admit that the sombustion is great and simple, but even a simple modded sprinkler valve with a half decent chamber size will be shooting 50-100 meters further.(Sorry dont know wat that is in yard, probably like 40-80)
