Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
I'm thinking that the potatoes that come out of that one are not the ones you really want to catch...

Belonged to a RC club. They hosted WOD every year (Warbirds Over Delaware). They had an event called Electric Mayhem. Participants would send up planes they were willing to sacrafice. After that, it was shoot-em-if-you-got-em'. Limit was non-lethal weapons (re: PressReader.com - Your favorite newspapers and magazines).

I made a plastic sabbot with a tungsten core for that cannon that fired passed 26 acres never to be seen again. It wasn't a potato gun, it was lethal artillery. And I'm working on mark 2. Copper lined rifled barrel able to hold 1,000 psi and shoot sabbot plugs of any manner of mayhem. I plan to break the sound barrier with my next cannon.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
That was the length of the property, no idea how far it actually went...
26 acres is not a unit of length. The property could have been 100ft wide by X,000 ft long and you shot your projectile over the 100ft width.
