    I have a potato gun somewhat like this one here [​IMG]
    i like the design shown here but im looking for something different.
    also a name for it.

    If any of you have one of these you know how much fun they are.

    just the other day I was siting out on my front lawn with it aimed up at approximately a 80 degree angle and i bet the potato landed a few blocks away!

    so, i would love it if you guys could give some advice to a newcomer :big grin:

    thanks

    I just don't recognize potato guns that aren't bare PVC with dried-on glue that's been squeezed out of the joints.

    Perhaps you ought design it to be easier to aim than that design that looks to be best fired from the hip with little accuracy. Something along the lines of a shoulder stock, a sighting device, and a dependable ignition/trigger. If recoil is a bit much for that kind of scheme, perhaps you could design it more bazooka-style to give your arms a chance to soak up the recoil.

    You're on your own for a name.

    I always used to use the push button ignitors for grills. Back before I was old enough to purchase real guns I had a mean spud gun arsenal. Now they are all collecting dust in the garage.
