Spud gun

You can use a NON- deodorant aresol anti-prespirant (right guard) as propellant also.
The deodorant ones will gum up the firing mechanism.
We used a flint striker from a coleman lantern.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

We used aerosol hairspray and the colman flint striker and our combustion chamber was considerable smaller. After watching this a little closer I noticed he didn't use primer before the cement, I dunno how important it is for a spud gun but I was taught to always use primer first when cementing pvc. If you build one do be careful who you shoe it to, turns out they are illegal to even own in the city I live in.
