Over 10yrs ago i joined this site, back when i was younger and had an obsession with wanting to destroy stuff 🤣🤣i had completely forgotten about it. A bored youtube search for "spudguns" seen me spying a familiar name or two which brought the back memories of this site. And lo and behold its still here! And going pretty well for being in 2022! Is any one like jrrdw, Mrcrowley, pc guy or technician still around??
Being from Australia our laws are mental so young me never really made wanted to get thrown in jail so never really made many attempts at guns,but i was always so envious seeing what some of these guys made!
What ever happend to V.E.R.A?

Still here but with much less activity, the question has been asked as to whether spudding is dead, and in the Anglosphere at least there definitely seems to be a lot less interest especially from the younger individuals that fuel this hobby.

Am present. I made a new cannon in 2019 I think it was, and it was quite a project. The site is very low in activity, the glory days of spudding seems to have been in the 90's and early 2000's. Spudding will always have a special place in my heart and I have two special cannons that I will either leave to my kids or force the kids to bury me with the cannons, not sure which yet.

The latter would be an interesting discovery for future archeologists :D in the former case they could be used to distribute your ashes 🤔
