What have you fired from your cannon

I can't really think of many weird things I've shot from a spudgun, maybe a power plug or a barrel full of blood-coloured water :roll:

Fired a cellphone once (it had previously drowned in the sea), the casing broke, screen cracked and it gained a slight bend that made it better conform to the hand. Nokias really are tough..

Well, I routinely fire canned food from my big gun... spinach is pretty nasty.

But for the weirdest... probably a whole pickle I fired from my old spray-n-pray. It was a couple weeks old, soft and wrinkly, and when I hit the igniter, it kinda stuck in the barrel and made a *pbpbpbpbpbloob* noise as it worked it's way out. Then it flew about 30ft and hit the base of a tree and bounced.

Nails with the heads hammered into fins, could fit about 50 of them in my pneumatic... they did nasty things to the targets...
