Yeah, I have way too much time on my hands. The past couple days I've been building a propane powered potato gun. She's finally done and shoots ~175 yards at 2/3 power.




Here's a video of me shooting it into a brick wall from about 5 feet away. If you look closely to can see the potato turn into a fine mist. Nothing was left of the potato.

It's hard to tell how far it is but in the background is a 3 story apartment building. At 60 PSI (max is 90) we got it within 10 yards of the front door.

Pretty damn cool, but you need to hire a new camera guy who isn't so flinchy.

Gotta agree with FNGSniper and CAR-10 on this one.
