The Can Cannon is a patent pending launching device for soda cans and other heavy, thin walled objects. A proprietary gas ported barrel and pressure tube reduce the exposure to high pressure gasses which could destroy relatively delicate projectiles. The Can Cannon is currently configured for launching full, un-opened 12oz soda cans. When used with standard mil spec blanks and fired at an optimum angle it can reach an average distance of 105 yards!
Why launch soda cans instead of drinking them? Because you can! Projectile options are only limited by your creativity and local laws. Our BATFE approved design is not considered a Destructive Device or firearm.
Not technically a firearm although the photograph above shows it with machine gun belts. (See also: Kinetic Packaging)
Certainly the Can Cannon is more gun-like than, say, the Targeteer Beer Can Launcher. And like the Targeteer, it enables a person to use air born beverage cans for skeet shooting.
