Bobby, Jimmy, and Vera....

(Jimmy, Bobby, & Vera)
Saturday morning Bobby and our friend, Jimmy, decided to make a potato gun. They went to work designing and building their new toy and within an hour, they had their masterpiece. The gun, now known as Vera, is an interesting contraption. They stuff half of a potato into Vera's barrel and then use a combination of Lysol spray and cheap hairspray to activate the spark from the trigger. They used a small lantern liter as their trigger. I was very surprised Vera didn't blow up in their faces. I managed to catch a couple of pictures and videos (hopefully to come later).
