The antis promote the idea that gun owners are dangerous people. To their way of thinking [sic], any of us could go psycho and start shooting innocent people. A logic trail that leads straight to civilian disarmament; inherently dangerous owners mean gun ownership is inherently dangerous. So The People of the Gun tend to play down their gun love and talk about hunting, self-defense and anti-tyranny insurance. Fair enough, but . . . watermelons! Potato gun! BOOM! If you don’t think that’s fun, youuuuu might be an anti. Just sayin’.

  1. Play down their gun love? Hells no! I talk about how much fun they are anytime anyone asks…and usually they end up finding out for themselves how much fun they are after a range invitation

  2. Way cool potato gun. Good thing he didn’t make it out of black tubing, cuz, well, you know….black rifles are evil.

    I’ll admit it’s been a loooong time since I played with a potato gun, but my question is: what’s he using for the ignitor?

    • Probably a standard Coleman lantern lighter.

      They are beyond easy to install, far more resistant to fouling than the automatic click style lighters, and even if it does get mucked up somehow you can buy packages of replacement flint at just about any sporting goods store. No need to disassembly your spud gun to replace the guts of the spark ignitor or bbq lighter. Sure they don’t have the fun point and click trigger feel but they are FAR more lasting and reliable in my experience.

  3. He is using red potatoes, they are to soft. A hardy Russet would have achieved the penetration he was looking for!

  4. We always stuck the potato in, filled the chamber, then compressed the mixture. Blew holes in the side of a barn at 25 yards. Maybe the barn was just old…

  5. You know about rule 34. Someone, somewhere, has masturbated INTENSELY to this video.

    • That’s not what Rule 34 means, and you’ve got mental health problems. Rule 34 would imply that somewhere out there on the internet, there exists potato-gun porn (and I don’t mean potato gun-porn, which also probably exists but is SFW).

  6. And now you see why I contend that science and math should be taught by engineers, not education majors.
