|Home > Spudguns|
Many years ago at Scout camp, a leader brought a strange looking contraption made out of white PVC pipe. Later, after the campfire, a small crowd had gathered around that leader. I made my way over to see what all the fuss was about. I found out pretty quickly when I was nearly scared to death by a loud "BOOM!". This guy whas shooting apples halfway accross the campground. After a while, I talked to the guy and found out that he usually shoots potatos, but since the apples grew on many of the trees in the campground, he didn't bring any spuds. I thought that this was very neat, so I took a quick look at his spudgun to see how it was built.
Once I got home from camp, I started my own version. I built mine with ABS pipe, as it is very difficult to find PVC in my area. It seems to me that ABS is also stronger. I origionally used a BBQ ingniter for firing, but then switched to a TV flyback transformer high voltage generator, which is much more reliable and gives better ignition. The gun I built is showen below.
