Tactical Tennis Ball Launcher, with Bacon

For Christmas, my son got Backyard Ballistics: Build Potato Cannons, Paper Match Rockets, Cincinnati Fire Kites, Tennis Ball Mortars, and More Dynamite Devices. So, we first made a tennis ball launcher, because we had all the stuff laying around. It wasn’t tactical enough so we put an angled forward grip on it. And we used bacon duct tape:

    As I pointed out in the comments to the tacticool hammer, the Russian milsurp version comes with a bayonet already attached, and costs a few bucks less than the home-made version. But both are good fun.

    What! No flash suppressor?

    Everything is better with bacon, everything! You could dress it up with some cheese but none of that fancy Havarti stuff, just stick to Cheddar.

    I had to look up the fire kite, and I gotta say that it looks pretty cool. going to have to try that.

    The fire kites are extremely cool. Make sure you have square paper, and use the smallest amount of tape as possible. For best results wait for a cold evening/night. My kids and I spent hours with these a few years ago.
