The Tinii

It's plural for Tinius, because we said so.

This is why your mom warned you about potato guns!- By Josh

A couple nights ago my neighbor Klint and I were bored and thought that it would be fun to build a potato gun.  We ran to home depot and twenty minutes later we had a pretty large potato gun.  IMAG1304

 

That night we shot just about everything we could find that we thought we could blow a hole in, including…

A beer can.

 

And…

Closet doors.

Not to mention…

Klint and Kyle’s shed!

 

Whoops….

 

So a couple days later a few of my friends from the Congo came over.  I thought I would impress them by showing them my potato gun.

 

 

After the back of the gun exploded I was scared to even look at my finger because I didn’t think there was any chance it would still be attached to my hand.  Thankfully it was!

  1. It’s all fun and games until someone loses a finger 🙂

  2. This is why we build the ignition into the side of the gun instead of the end cap.

  3. This is why we build the ignitor into the side of the gun instead of the end cap.

  4. Haha…. That was my neighbors engineering. I even said to him while we were building it “Seems like the lighter would just blow out the back if you dont have it jammed in hard enough.” I never thought that it would actually blow off the end cap…
