Post subject:  Gunpowder launcher - saftey issue

Originaly posted by Xx-Ice-xX,
I cudnt afford the pipes and **** to make a spray propelled launcher so i put a broom handle in the end of about 30mm pipe, Glued (its in there strong) and drilled a hole very slightly above it.

When i want to fire i put a fuse through the hole, about a coke cap full of charge down its gullet, then ram a potatoe all the way to the bottom and compress it with a few hits.

It shoots rather far really...
My only concern is am i at risk? Will the pipe explode and rip me in half one day or am i pretty safe with it?

Any feedback or anything at all would be appriciated haha.
Thanks heaps
Ice
