This cannon is moderately powerful but fun. DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES HOLD IT. DO NOT POINT AT A PERSON OR ANIMAL. TREAT IT LIKE A REAL GUN. Please, be careful. If you do choose to make one, I take no accountability for anything you may do with it. It is not a toy. If anyone is hurt, that's your fault. This is purely educational. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. I will add pictures soon.

Roll the index card into a fuse around the barrel of the lighter. Wrap with 1/4 inch of ducktape all the way up the barrel. Cap 1 end with 1/4 inch of ducktape strips and make sure it is tight and firm as well as thick. Drill a hole in the tube at this end. That's your gun.


Step 3: Shooting

Pack with about 1/3 of a teaspoon of gunpowder. Ram in tissue on top gently. Put fuse in hole at back. Make sure it is at least a 7 second fuse. Light when pointed in a safe direction and run for some kind of cover. Preform while wearing safety goggles. Do not stand directly in front of or behind when it is loaded.

When I tried it, the kickback destroyed the box it was placed in, but this is because I put in some BB's (A major DO NOT.). A copper pipe properly capped at one end works better, but that's your choice.

NOW, PLEASE BE CAREFUL. DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES HOLD IT. DO NOT POINT AT A PERSON OR ANIMAL. TREAT IT LIKE A REAL GUN. Please, be careful. If you do choose to make one, I take no accountability for anything you may do with it. It is not a toy. If anyone is hurt, that's your fault. This is purely educational. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME
