I heard tell of a hunter that made exploding arrows, he was a good looking intelligent type that quit after he remembered that it is against the law to do that, but it sure packed a whalup when it hit.

i have a cousin whose kind of the mad scientist in the family he's made a lot of crazy shit, but the coolest thing he made was a replica of a howitzer cannon from WW2, he made it out of pvc piping and the recoil is set on gears he got from a broken atm (he's a repair man) it shoots potatoes mainly but you can put a cork in the barrel and load whatever you want in it, sometime we take it to the beach when we go surf fishing, we put the cork in the barrel then put the rig in after it, BAM! right over the breakers and no casting involved!
