Heres the one i made last year. I've been building these things for years, this is the best one so far. the spuds come out whole, its accurate (for a spud gun) and is quite powerful

For propellent i prefer aqua net, unscented

next i'm gonna try one thats propeled by compressed air on a lil bit larger scale .

I will make you a fail proof tube like mine. pretty simple, but you have to put the cutting edge on the barrel. I use 2 7/8" pipe so a tennis ball fits in it, your dogs will never get tired of chasing that ball.
