Backyard Ballistics

Those crazy guys at Super Soaker Central have taken the passion for water guns up to the next level. These streams will hit you at around 100 psi so you might want to be a little careful when you shoot the cat but it's all in good fun right?

Want something with even more power, then you definitely need to check out spud guns. These potato cannons are crude ballistic devices made out of PVC pipe and propel potatoes around 200 yards. Sound crazy...Did we mention you use hairspray as fuel and anything is lethal when you ram it down this barrel. Go check out Spud Tech for more info.

If you want something a little smaller and that you can build in minutes then try making a matchstick rockets. Apparently these things can travel over 12 feet and are only made out of foil and a match. Otherwise visit Public Missles for bigger rockets.
