Most common thing to shoot
When you run out of potatoes
Great for parties, new years, or to mess up someone's yard. Load half a potato or a styrofoam cup first before the confetti
Tennis Ball
Load a tennis ball (Fits best in a 2 in diameter barrel)
Trailer Hitch Ball
It is like a slug for a potato cannon. Be careful, this will go through an oil drum
Molotov Cocktail
Fill a small glass bottle with a flammable liquid. Stick a rag or a cotton ball into the neck of the bottle. Load with rag facing the combustion chamber. When it hits the ground, boom!
Rocket propelled potato
Load a potato to get the correct size then remove and hollow the rear of the potato and insert a model rocket motor (C6-5). Insert a firecracker fuse into the rocket and load. When fueling the cannon, spray a small amount of gas onto the fuse. Launch as usual.
Glow Sticks
The type you bend to activate. Load a potato and stab an activated glowstick 1/4 of the way into the top of the potato before pushing the potato all the way into the barrel. Launch at night.
Dry Ice Bomb
Put dry ice into a zip-loc bag and use a hammer to crush the dry ice. Pour the crushed dry ice into a plastic bottle that would fit in your barrel. Meanwhile, have a friend or helper load a potato and fuel the gun. When the gun is ready, pour hot water into the bottle, put the cap on and quickly load into the barrel then launch immediately. The explosion sounds like a M-100 firecracker.
