Default Can launcher?

In the "Disaster" thread jasonmusic1's mention of shooting at a thrown can was coincidental to me. Yesterday I was thinking about a foot operated (triggered) can launcher of some kind. Anyone tried that?

Way too simple, practical and inexpensive for me. I'm thinking something with garden hose, copper tubing, gate valves and BaBa beans.

I know this video was already shown on this forum, but you mean something like this?

Sounds a lot like sleet shooting to me, if you want to build a target launcher I can't think of a better model. Not sure how it would work with a non streamlined object like a can and empty cans could be a problem as well but I think it'd be a good place to start.

I would make it fun like a potato cannon. Aqua Net is the best hairspray for fuel...its a LONG story.

We don't want the story. What we want is the pic of your hair when you figured out that Aqua Net made for a good propellant.
