Our larger melon musket, Melon Moleculizer, launches one.
The air tank is a 500 gallon propane tank, and the barrel is 40 ft (13.5 M) of 10 inch high pressure water main piping. We were launching melons out of the 1/2 mile ( about a kilometer) wide pasture.
We launched about 95 melons today with the two muskets.
Hand held, polarizer.
Google "Bazookey" for vid of our smaller cannon on BBQ TV.

Acme Melon Moleculizer!! She's not the prettiest thing I've ever seen but certainly one of the most original and hysterical things I've seen in a long time!! The melon in mid air is perfect!!

Have you thought about painting her pink? LoL!!!!

The rather brilliant capture of the watermelon in flight just tops this off perfectly.
