Spud Gun Fun...

What does it take to spice up a beautiful Saturday afternoon?

How about some Spud Gun Fun!

Our friends made this contraption yesterday, and brought it over for some entertainment this afternoon.  First, you load it with a potato...

Then you ram the potato the whole way into the barrel...

Then you add some propellant, and quickly put on the cap...

...and fire...

...aiming away from anything important, of course!  KABOOM!!

I don't know just how long this entertained everyone, but it was quite a least until the potatoes ran out!

Nothing like some home made fun! 


  1. I haven't seen a spud gun in years! They are VERY entertaining! :)

  2. Spud guns are great! We know about spud guns in Idaho. Just don't tell the people who want to babysit us and make sure nobody ever has a chance of getting harmed.

  3. My brother made one of those last year and boy o boy, the guys loved it and they shot potatoes high in the sky. It was fun to watch. He got the direction to make it on the internet of course. JB

  4. I have wanted to make one of those for years and years. I have always thought it would be so much fun. I am glad you took pictures. :)

  5. I have always wanted to try one of those things. It looks like fun.

  6. Yup when I was younger the potato launcher we called it was popular with all the farm kids ! It started out on a sling shot then progressed lol . Farm kids always find fun things to do dont they ? great photos .
    Have a good day !

  7. Oh how fun, I remember my kids making those.... Oh to be a kid again :)

  8. I can only imagine how much fun my son would have with something like that!


I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
