Re: [Underground Ballistics] Has any one made a high presser air cannon.
- theres lots of high pressure cannons around, but you'll need a special air compresser, a standard shop compresser only goes to 150 lbs or so. you'd need to get ahold of a scuba diving air compressor, but they're BIG BUCKS. Acetylene will give u well over 1000lbs pressure( i dont know the exact figures) but it's highly dangerous, and you have to make damn sure you're gun wont blow apart. i use acetylene in mine, but i used hydraulic pipe that's rated for those kind of pressures, and i'm a certified welder, we x-rayed the welds to check for faults for safety reasons. i'll look around the net to see if i can find out what the pressures created by exploding acetylene are.

you'd have to weigh 1000 pounds to do it by hand....this isn't possible.
