Oh man is that tempting. Gotta keep my money for sailing this summer though.

I can't wait to have disposable income.

I'm thinking you could really scare the crap out a speed boat when you blast a round or two at him. Wonder how long it would take before he realized it was just spuds. Might damage a fiberglass hull though.

The thought of a cast bronze signal cannon has occurred to me. It could be fuelled by carbide and water, should produce a decent bang.

I looked at the website for the t-shirt guns, the good one is $1600. I wonder how hard it would be to make one.
