yup? we make them at work all the time. since i am a plumber its easy acess to material. only difference is we use acetalyne gas....... it sounds like a missel. puts a potato through a house in no time. just please be careful. we had an accident with it one day. my helper was holding the barrel away from him, and another kid was filling the chamber with gas. he lit it and BOOOOM it exploded into millions of pieces. and i saw it in slow mo. it was awsome. luckily nobody was hurt.

Acetylene? Yikes! That is quite a step up from hair spray...

Or if you don't like someone and want to avoid manslaughter charges, put a bunch of animal manure in there, and let fly at your target. Hi-impact crap launcher!

i made one (spudgun) in my metal shop class out of 2" tubing for the barrel and i think its 4" for the chamber and used a latern lighter for it and used a 1-1/4" zinc plated pluming plug 1-1/4" for the hair spray but never tryed ace. dont plane to i ve seen bad things happen with that and seen then happen in metal shop too just an idea works great to just dont take it on back packing trips would kill your back weighs of 15-25lbs so it aint light good luck
