Accuracy would also be very poor. The push rod would have to be rather flimsy or else it would weigh even more. It will bend and wobble like an eel in a water barrel.

Hey Jörg,
have you ever thought about trying to create a supersonic launcher? I personally find this a pretty interesting challenge, as we all know there are some serious mechanical problems one has to deal with.
But maybe you thought about doing it sometimes too. If so, you could maybe make a video, in which you just explain your thoughts (and maybe even some tries in the past, in case you did some). Together we could maybe figure something out. A while ago you made a video about slingshots hitting harder than handguns. But if we could break the sound barrier, that would definetely make up a comparable weapon
Anyway, if you are too busy for such highly speculative experiments, we can hold this topic over.
