    so far ive shot a big glob of parafin wax outa my potato gun
    ive put a hole in my neighbor's privacy fence with a golf ball
    ive made a shot gun out of it by tightly packing a rag in the barrel and then putting in a hand full of BBs
    ive shot out a little metal pipe and put a hole in a 1inch thick particle board
    ive shot out a 2x2 peice of wood at my folding lawn chair, that put a big hole in it
    ive shot out a screw driver like a dart and got it stuck in a tree, i my self couldnt pull it out, i hadta get my cousin to pull it out
    ive shot a golf ball straight up to see how high it would go, obviously i never found it again
    i shot out some walnuts
    i shot out some charcoal

    ive had the neighbors (not the ones with the fence) call the cops on me
    ive had the cops more interested in making their own potato cannon than telling me that there was nothing illegal with what i was doing

    ive been shot with it (ouch)
    i shot my cousin back


    i cant think of anything else i can do with it
    got any ideas?

    Take pictures of yourself shooting a cat point blank and post them here for all the cat fanboys to see. ;)

    Hehe, me and my pal made a pipe cannon before. Im sure thats the same thing eh, a household mortar.

    Launched Paintballs, that was neat, some blew up in the chamber though. But thats what we mostly did.

    A dead squirrel, dont ask we were curious to see how far it would really go. :p

    Jammed some leaves in there, with some grass, oh ya that was some funny stuff.

    Oh ya, forgot about the golf balls, we did that too, but they just bounced all mental in the trees at the end of the property line, didn't aim it at anything.

    Quick-build crossbows from Coathangers paperclips gum bands and pencils
    dart guns
    Radio-Controlled Fire-cracker bombs
    A napalm like substance
    our own fireworks

    It is amazing I lived through my childhood

    Lol FLAMER!!!111

    J/K.

    Me and my pal were going to make some sort of solution that produces hydrogen. Umm what was it again, oh ya "Liquid Plumber + Aluminum Foil = Hydrogen Gas"

    Good for blowing up your neighbours mail box. But blow up with caution.

    i wish that i had neighbors and parents who were undertanding enough to let me have one of those. dont really have a place to shoot one anyway though. sounds like lots of fun.

    i think it would be cool to load a bunch of paintballs in there like you did with the bbs.

    Does anybody know how to make those soup can tennis ball cannons? My friend made a bunch of these when I was a kid, but I can't remember how exactly its constructed. 2 cans on top of each other or so with bottoms cut off so it would act as the main tube. Then another can with a bottom and a bunch of holes in it, then another can beneath that with one hole at the bottom. Drop a bit of ethane in there, pop in a tennis ball and you'd never see the thing again or something like that. Good times were had
