Video from the weekend of the shoulder fired potato cannon I built a few years ago. The first shot hit the table in spot where there was a brace and did not do too much damage. Shots 2 and 3 though found unsupported parts of the 2 x 6 and blew right through. Firing cheap red potatoes.

Never violate a woman, nor harm a child. Do not lie, cheat or steal. These things are for lesser men. Protect the weak against the evil strong. And never allow thoughts of gain to lead you into the pursuit of evil.

Humm.....this breech loading beast is designed to drop 200 paintballs on unsuspecting enemies from above.
Has been known to shoot potatoes out of sight!
