    I made one of those yesterday from pringles tubes! I deffo need to make one like that tho! My pringles tube version was extremely powerful and managed to launch a bottle of water across the whole neighbourhood- doing so made the bottom tube explode (literally). It also made my ears ring for around 5 hours afterwards as it was insanely loud(Read: i may have used alot too much deodorant and crouched right next to it).

    i tried using lighter gas but it didnt work too well, could have just been too much/little. After i tried deodorant it was deffo alot more powerful so i'd recommend deodorant instead of lighter fluid.

    Lighter fluid evaporates pretty quickly so no, its not the best thing to use.
    Deodrant isn't so bad for that, it will go after a few mins though, but hairspary is the stuff to use. ;)

    Well i took the cannon to my friend house today seeing he lives next to a park. We tried all different ammunts of fuel and weights of ammo, we got one to an estimated 150 - 200meter upwards (direct fire up) and another one went around 75meters across the park! In the end we discovered under no circumstances use air freshener as all it does it clog the tubes with gunk. Deodorant is still top dog for fuel. We fired so many shots that we ended up detroying the tube (again!) and we didn't have any more pringles tubes. We tried a plastic pipe but decided against it incase it exploded (plastic shrapnel `n all).

    Gonna get 6 tubes of pringles tomorrow and a ton of ducktape and cheapo deodorant. I'll posst up a log of how its made and maybe even a video.

    Mike

    Nice bazooka. Amazing what you can build with a length of PVC pipe and some hair spray.
