    I'd be curious to see Joerg, or anyone build one. Obviously penetration wouldn't be the greatest, but I bet it would be an effective large rifle/cannon.

    That's pretty much exactly what I was talking about, thanks! I'm not sure how I missed it before. The only downside is overall size of the weapon, though I bet it's impractical to fire them with anything much smaller; maybe shoulder mounted.

    Baseball is popular over here. I could see this type of bazooka being used to launch something like that too.

    I bet a golf ball would go pretty far out of that thing.:D

    Well, the cannon to this day is the most powerful slingshot I have built. Hard to believe I made it in 2011...

    But that frozen potato was something, too!
