What is a breech loading barrel?
Our unique breech loading barrel allows you to load the potato without having to use a ramrod to push the potato down the barrel from the muzzle end (the front end of the barrel). To load, simply unscrew the barrel or open the quick release and remove the barrel. Load your potato at the rear end of the barrel with the help of the integrated spud cutter. Then reattach the barrel to the launcher. It’s quick, easy and now you’re ready to fuel and fire.
Which fuel is better-Aerosol or MAPP gas?
The MG-11 Carbine and VX-1 Stinger use aerosol fuel while the VX-2 Stryker and VX-3 Sabre use MAPP gas fuel. The aerosol fuel is AquaNet hairspray which is highly flammable and produces considerable chamber pressure when ignited, with shots up to 150+ yards. It’s inexpensive and readily available. The downside is you have to handle a can of aerosol spray each time you fuel the gun. The alternative is MAPP gas. It is a mixture of propane/acetylene that burns very quickly and produces higher chamber pressure. This results in a longer shot, up to 200+ yards and the MAPP fuel is integrated into the gun so you don’t have to handle the compact fuel cylinder. The downside is it costs a little more per shot.
Can kids shoot these guns safely?
Adult supervision is required at all times. These potato guns fire a projectile up to 400 mph with a range of 200+ yards and can cause serious injury or death. DO NOT point or shoot at people or animals. THIS IS NOT A TOY. FOR ADULT USE ONLY.
Do I need hearing protection when shooting my potato gun?
Our potato/ball launchers are combustion guns and will produce a pretty loud BANG when fired. Similar to a shotgun but not quite as loud. Most people don’t worry about ear plugs but it is a personal choice. If you’re concerned about it - soft, spongy plugs are inexpensive and effective.
Are potato guns legal to shoot where I live and who can buy them?

It is the buyers responsibility to check with their local Law Ordinance for the use and possession of these products.
