Ben, that's easy, check out spudtech's How To page. Are you shooting potatoes at a Tiki, or firing a Tiki out of a SpudGun?

[freud]sometimes a potato cannon is just a potato cannon... but not in this case.[/freud]

p.s. booben, pneumatic potato cannons are the way to go. the ingition versions are very touchy, but pneumatic works every time.

We used the old fashioned ones with lighter fluid and put the mortars from large fireworks in them for great effect!

We have one made from black pvc pipe, but other than that I know nothing. Sunds like fun though! One of my brothers made a spud gun that handles frozen turkeys. What the heck else are you going to do in northern Alberta?
